Book Launch: The Ninoy Aquino Graphic Novel

Ok, so it had a better title than that. But you get the drift right? August 17, Jiggy invited us to attend the book launch for his first ever published work at the Ateneo Jesu Church. It was pouring really hard, hence the launch which was supposed to take place at the field across the church had to be done inside. It didn't diminish the message that he wanted to get across though. Ninoy died for us 25 years ago, what are we doing for our country now? (griping and bitching about the current state doesn't count!)

I was able to take a glimpse of the book last Wednesday and i was blown away. I was excited for its launch. The book is a compilation of 25 essays in relation to Ninoy and what he had to go through for his country, And yes that's 25 because it is for the 25th Death Anniversary of Ninoy Aquino. Being Jiggy's labor of love, it couldn't merely just be essays, a certain comic flavor has to be introduced to it. Jiggy enlisted the help of some of the countries movers and shakers in the comic industry. The snipet seen here is from Andrew Drillon. Other artist who contributed their talents (sketches) for the compilation are Leinil Yu, Gerry Alanguilan, Harvey Tolibao, Stephen Segovia and Carlo Pagulayan. I think the book will be available starting this August 21. Please buy and support this great undertaking.

It's only Php 300.00
