Midnight Tribunal 4.5 starsNow we re going down a darker path I definitely ship Alexa and Maliksi The author is so measly with Alexa s personal life , I want.

Bought this on Komikon 2012 What shocks me to see a familiar character from the previous volume it didn t occur me they actually planned to put Maliksi back in action but this time it s different Not only that there s a Higante roaming around doing its own justice.AS usual Budjette and Kajo done magnificent job Now I can t wait for the story and their next project. Trese 5 Midnight Tribunal by Budjette Tan and KaJo Baldisimo reminded me of Trese 3 Both books were character driven although I enjoy character driven books, as well as reading the characters backstories, I think I enjoyed the individual casesin this comic series Trese 2 and Trese 5, for example Trese 3 and 5 were quite draggy in some way.I was tempted to give this 2.5 to 2.75 stars However, the ending was so good that I had to give it a higher rating I liked how the stre Trese 5 Midnight Tribunal by Budjette Tan and KaJo Baldisimo reminded me of Trese 3 Both books were character

Trese were emphasized at the end I liked how the kambal displayed humor during the entire book as well I also appreciated the story about the scales And, although I enjoyed the scenes with Maliksi, I hope that the creators would not focus so much on giving Alexandra Trese a love life just for the series to have romance in it Original post at One More PageSo the news of the fifth installment of the graphic novel Trese by Budjette Tan and KaJo Baldisimo totally took me by surprise I wasn t supposed to pass by the Komikon on the last weekend of October because I thought I didn t have anything to go there for And then I saw the Facebook update from the publisher and that made me adjust my weekend plans, stat.When weird things happen in the city, the police call Alexandra Trese However, there

to pass by the Komikon on the last weekend of October because I thought I didn t have anything to go there for And then I saw the Facebook update from the publisher and that made me adjust my weekend plans, stat.When weird things happen in the city, the police call Alexandra Trese However, there seemed to be someone else who s answering these calls before Trese can get to them Someone who s faster, and who s slowly gaining popularity because of his public antics Trese gets to the bottom of it quick, and finds that there sto the surface with this being who s doing her job for her.I m making the summary vague on purpose because it s good not to be spoiled with this issue This is a common storyline, really, where someone else tries to take the job of our hero heroine and can often do it better than them, which makes our star a less credible hero Butoften than not, this replacement hero heroine has bad intentions, which our hero heroine will uncover in the end Trese 5 followed that pattern and then veered away from it, making itinteresting than it already is.Midnight Tribunal follows the same format that Mass Murders did, with four interconnected stories instead of independent cases I loved how old characters showed up again, like the nuno who is now asking for Kitkat instead of Chocnut and Maliksi, the young tikbalang bachelor who will definitely play a big part in the later issues I love, love, love the Kambal, with their funny quips and awesome, awesome lines They re definitely funnier now than they were before, but they were also just as kick ass as their boss.I loved how there wasdevelopment in Trese s story arc here, and important characters were introduced in this installment that I am definitely looking forward to reading about in the next This is definitely one of my favorites in the series, and I am one very, very happy fan I cannot wait to know what happens next During my junior year, TRESE was a comic book that was a lucky purchase one lazy afternoon at our university s National Bookstore outlet Every time I get bored in class, I would just sneak out and browse through the shelves since most of my classes are on the ground floor anyway I checked this one out because the art looks tasty enough and I was happy to find out that there are three compiled volumes and all of which are promising If could describe it, it s almost like Eric Kripke s Supernatu During my junior year, TRESE was a comic book that was a lucky purchase one lazy afternoon at our university s National Bookstore outlet Every time I get bored in class, I would just sneak out and browse through the shelves since most of my classes are on the ground floor anyway I checked this one out because the art looks tasty enough and I was happy to find out that there are three compiled volumes and all of which are promising If could describe it, it s almost like Eric Kripke s Supernatural but with a lead girl who solves occult crimes perpetuated by or referencing to well known Philippine folklore creatures and deities such as aswangs, tiyanak, manananggal, diwata, tikbalang, etc It s written in English too so anyone can appreciate the author s density in handling these stories without worrying about the language barrier However, it was by the fifth installment published last year that the series took a new height of excitement and solid storytelling Midnight Tribunal wasconcise in narrative delivery with all stories looping together unlike with the previous volumes which have a formulaic Monster of the Week Said monsters make brief appearances which include plotlines that have a primary purpose This issue did somethingrevolutionary with the material and the art has improved in so many ways that I thoroughly enjoyed each panel sequence presented Trese was easier to relate to by this time though still areticent and less snarky female John Constantine from Hellblazer Her sidekicks, the infamous Kambal, are just as fantastic and humorous I was also happy that they included old Filipino comic book heroes by Mars Ravelo like Darna from one volume and now Captain Barbell here in the fifth one It s like a crossover universe and it worked splendidly, simultaneously becoming a tribute to a classic work, and givinggravitas to the story with adimensional scope A certain real life political figure is parodied and also appears in this volume for the first time and this person seems to be the perfect formidable foe for Trese herself I m excited for what s to come for this series.RECOMMENDED 10 10
