In pre-colonial times, Manila was a battleground between gods and the Salaysayon, olden shamans possessed by The UnMaker, an entity that sought to unmake reality. Now, Manila is where the fate of existence is to be decided, whether the myths of old can fight obliteration caused by the Unmaking of everything, or will the universe simply blink out of existence. In the middle of this war is Santi, a storyteller thrust by destiny to help the gods conjure mightier stories that can challenge the power of The UnMaker. Also, he becomes a witness to the chaos fueled by apathy and hate in the ancient city of Manila. Welcome to Part 1 of GODS OF MANILA. Dark fantasy/social allegory. 76 black and white interior pages.

An ode to myth and the magic that comes with local folklore. It is also a collection of six stories dedicated to the magical creature known as the Tikbalang, told with modern sensitivities and social allegories. To stay in step with the changing times, we should make new lore from the old myths to pique the interest of the young. Hopefully, these stories will lead them back to learn the old mythic stories, legends, epics and traditions that we must preserve, for as the saying goes: ang hindi lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan (if you do not look back from where you came from, you will not go anywhere). Myth defines a culture, from the origins of morals to the ethics of modern society, and if myth is forgotten, then culture, as the essence of society, will cease to exist. Soon to be published by Rogue Matter.
