Acclaimed Filipino cartoonist and three-time National Book Awardee Manix Abrera, with ABLAZE, are proud to present his graphic novel "12".
Twelve remarkable stories, weird and surreal, thought-provoking yet funny,
sometimes disturbing, others terrifying, but nonetheless always enchanting.
Twelve genuinely touching stories, all drawn in Manix's engaging style,
devoid of words but communicating loudly.
Each story with its own charm, and intriguing twists - a young man spends his entire life searching for answers but shock awaits when he finally gets that eureka moment; someone finds love that unexpectedly finds somebody else; two men argue over who goes first on an escalator; a mother and daughter fight over a cockroach; a drunk man urinates on a tree and gets a big surprise - making you wonder how these mundane plots can turn out bizarrely, prompting you to reflect and crave for more!
What is the meaning of life? Is finding happiness worth it when you lose what really matters the most? Would you even know what matters the most?
Embrace pain and sorrow. Hope for love and will for hope.
Manix Abrera's 12 breaks all language barriers, cutting straight to your soul, touching your heart in ways you cannot imagine.
