Apol Sta. Maria’s ALAMAT NG PANGET & MANY OTHER Gets the Spine Treatment

When Apol Sta. Maria‘s Ang Alamat ng Panget and Many Other premiered years ago, it made good reviews and had some-what fine reception to some people outside the local independent comic scene. After many years, Sta. Maria just announced yesterday that he has just republished the the comic book. But, instead in a regular old-fashioned zine format, he mended it into a softcover/TPB treatment.

Flipgeeks had a quick chat with Sta Maria about this recent announcement with a hint of his new and upcoming book:

FLIPGEEKS: Tell me about this recent development of Ang Alamat ng Panget & Many Other?
APOL STA. MARIA: Ang first printing ng Ang Alamat Ng Panget & Many Other ay noong 2009, lumipas ang limang taon at matagal ko ring pinagisipan kung dadagdagan ko ba o iibahin ng kaunti ang laman ng libro at matapos ko basahin ulit, napagdesisyunan ko na lagyan lang ng print ang spine. Yun lang at ginawa kong 2014 ang dating 2009 na nakalagay. Napaka-exciting!

May binago ka ba sa art or sa dialogue para sa itong edition?
Wala. Reprint lang talaga sya. May material na kasi ako for the next book. Tapos balak ko sya ilabas next year.

Oooh. Anong title ng next comic mo?
Poopo & Many Other yung next.

Ano ang genre nya at tungkol saan?
Pilipino/dark humor siguro, haha. Or hindi pala dark… Pinoy/corny/dark/light. Yan.

Ayun, mukhang hindi ko na explain ng maayos ang libro, so baka yun ang proper description nya – hindi ko mapaliwanag.

 

Ang Alamat ng Panget & Many Other can now be purchased at Uno Morato and at his booth at Komikon this November for PhP 200.
