Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 16) — Netflix series “Trese” co-creator Kajo Baldisimo and five other Filipino artists will join this year’s Singapore Comic Con (convention) at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on Dec.10 and 11.

Philippine National Book Awardee Manix Abrera will also be present along with other Filipino artists working on Star Wars, Marvel and DC comics.

In 2021, Netflix adapted the Philippine graphic novel “Trese'' into an anime series.

Written by Budgette Tan and illustrated by Baldisomo, the popular horror and dark fantasy comic series features detective Alexandra Trese solving crimes caused by supernatural beings.

It dominated the charts in the Philippines and landed in Netflix's top 10 TV shows list in 11 countries just 24 hours after its release in June 2021
