If you didn't already know, the play will be restaged in June next year, during the 10th Virgin Labfest at the CCP. Anyway, we're gunning for this November's Komikon to release this baby. I hope it'll make it to the bookstores soon after that, though I don't know if it will be available in stores before Christmas. Here's a
