I Am a Metal Dog

That's what my Chinese Horoscope says. It also says that the Year of the Water Dragon may not be all well for my fellow Dogs. But what they hey. We'll still do out best. :-)

Happy Chinese New Year!

I got my sample copy of "Zsazsa Zaturnnah sa Kalahang Maynila" Part One last Thursday and, overall, I'm very happy with it. Super publisher Visprint will be releasing the book this Wednesday, initially in Metro Manila bookstores. Bookstores outside the region will follow.

For the curious, bibliophile blogger Charles Tan was able to get an advanced copy and generously gave a review. He says, "Zsazsa Zaturnnah sa Kalakhang Maynila is a complex beast and might well be one of the most important comic releases for the year. Carlo Vergara is attempting to outdo himself and so far, he's on the right track." The review is mostly spoiler-free, so you might want to check it out. Thanks, Charles!

If you decide to get a copy of the book, thank you. But it would also mean a lot if you could write in and tell me honestly and constructively what you think. You could send your feedback through zaturnnah - at - yahoo - dot - com. I should say, however, that I may post select letters on this here blog or in my Facebook timeline.

(And, yes, you can say how much you miss Didi. He misses you, too.) :-)

Got my copy at fullybooked yesterday! There are some text which were cut-out/trimmed from one of your splash pages. Dunno if this was inadvertently done or if it was censored hehehe or probably intentional :)

Nice work! Looking forward to parts 2 and 3!

Charles... Urrr... Sabihin na rin! :-)

Pirates... Ahehehe...Yes, that was intentional. Some Pinoy slang words can be too harsh on the ears. :-)

Allan... Thanks again for the review! :-)
