Publication History[ edit ] Trese was first published independently by Alamat Comics in ashcan photocopied and online format. It is currently available in a collected, graphic novel form, published by Visprint, Inc. The translated versions contained journal entries from the protagonist's father, Anton Trese, that added more history and background regarding each case. With a goal of reaching more audience, the creators then created an Indiegogo campaign for production of a page comic book global edition of Case 1: At the Intersection of Balete and 13th Street that has an updated text and art with bonus pages, featuring journal entries. Aside from a variant cover exclusive, supporters could also avail the Indiegogo sketch variant with uniquely drawn covers. When crime takes a turn for the weird, the police call Alexandra Trese. It follows the story of Alexandra Trese, a mysterious detective who deals with crimes of supernatural origin mainly occurring in the capital region of the Philippines. Alexandra steps in to protect the streets of Manila when the police can't deal with the supernatural weirdness that appears. Whenever she's needed, Trese arrives, often called in by Captain Guerrero, the Commissioner Gordon to Trese's unconventional Batman , a man who seems singularly predisposed to lean on her knowledge and specific skills. Supported by two mysterious and obviously magical creatures of uncertain powers — the always stylish Kambal, she's always there to protect Manila from supernatural threat. This changed from the start of Volume 5 where the cases started to take on a more serialized progression despite still incorporating aspects of episodic storytelling per issue.

Before we formally set foot on the review, be warned this is longer than usual. I tried to keep it tight reviewing three volumes of Trese. Like that of the western notion, 13, it seems to the Filipino culture is an unlucky number.

The number holds with it something mysterious and paranormal. Trese may also refer to the number of cases the volume is divided into. There are 13 cases. Burgos Case 4: Our Secret Constellation. Hence, Volume 1 was written as a standalone. I love that Trese began in Balete drive and 13th street. If there was one place in Metro Capt. Paying homage to that part of the city with the case of the dead white lady was, I believe, a good way to start.

From case 1, we pick up a few things about our main protagonist. She had connections with the police Capt. Guerrero and was called over for cases that are beyond forensic investigation. I get the feel of Batman more as I got through the novel. A similar blade is used by Lam-ang in Mythology class. A Kris is said to be both a weapon and a spiritual object. It is said to hold a presence or essence. We also meet her sidekicks—the kambal—referred to as half-breeds or half-aswangs.

The Kambal in full battle gear wear a mask one sad and one happy and a healthy appetite for battles and shooting.

Mapping Paranormal Cases Volume 1 reveals a pattern across each case. Each case is introduced with a map and a highlighted location of the case. It also give the feel that while some areas are known for paranormal activities, other areas too have their own share of sighting.

It mixes other elements that create the underworld. We find reference to the wind tribe amihan and habagat , to the santelmo, and to demons. Ideas like kaluluwa trafficking and illegal paranormal activities lay down an unseen structure between the creatures of the other world or underworld and the human race.

Even to retired superheroes, as case 4 illustrates. Volume 1 began with an ode to an old legend of Balete drive and ends with another ode to Darna. Trese Volume 2 Volume 2: Unreported Murders continues on with the tradition of mapping out the cases. It gives the feel that the author knows Metro Manila well, as well as the stories that the metropolis carries.
