Ang Roommate Kong Aswang coverOBVIOUS BA!

Philippine mythological creatures or folk monsters are one of the favorite staples in crafting Filipino super-natural tales of horror, suspense and even humor. Indie creator Ardie Aquino examines this briefly, especially the latter aspect of storytelling, in his mini-narrative Ang Roomate Kong Aswang!

A bit of detective narrative via the application and utilization of deductive reasoning in the nods of the classic stories of Sherlock Holmes, Detective Conan, and of course, Batman, to prove the main protagonist’s assumption that his buddy is a shift-shaping creature of the night. Hilarious at the turn of the page and the paneling is carefully done to illustrate the deductive prowess of the creator himself (remembering the basic teachings of College LOGIC). The sequences are mostly organized for a smooth sailing reading moment that ensures of making the title’s thesis logically sound. The action scenes are done playfully.

Plus, the creator adds another possible ending scenario, but just the same, essentially it rounds up similar to the previous narrative. Some of the phrases used here are a bit forced and sound anachronistic, yet the writer applies modern linguistic usages, particularly when emotions begin to boil up.

Nonetheless, this is a funny and even an educating tale of simple detective and reasoning abilities.
