With August 10 four days away, I'd just like to announce the third new title for the Indieket:

BATHALA: Apokalypsis (6A of 7)
By David Hontiveros and Ace Enriquez

The mighty Bathala has been laid low by his enemies, leaving the Apocalypse to rage on.
Long live Bathala, fallen but not forgotten.
Long live Bathala; Bathala is dead.

Or is he?

Also available at the Indieket will be the two other new titles, both set in the shared setting of The 'Verse:

DAKILA: Kapalaran (1 of 3)
By David Hontiveros and Bibo Reyes

Your name is Brandon Ramirez and you’ve been a lifelong geek: comics, movies, RPGs, cosplay.
And now, at 17, you’re officially the world’s first superhero, as evidenced by the cape, the mask, the totally ripped physique, and those crazy-awesome powers.
Higher agencies seem to have conspired to steer you right into that skintight outfit.
We have only one question:

How’s that working out for you?

For those of you out there who’ve read Parman and liked what you saw in there, you might want to check DAKILA: Kapalaran out…

Just saying…

URIEL: Hekhalot (1 of 4)
By David Hontiveros and Michael Urbano

Angels were not always warriors.
In the beginning, the arelim were messengers, their role, to bring Word and News from the lips of the glorious Hari ta mga Magbabaya, to the ears of all who would hear them.
But when Men were Created, it soon became clear that the vile Mangilala was deeply interested in their misery.
Thus, Magbabaya decreed that all Men must have a nathra, a watchman, a guardian, to defend them against Mangilala’s dark and cruel whims.
Uriel is one such nathra, and 7-year-old Maleck de los Santos, his mortal charge.

So, there you go.

The first issues of DAKILA: Kapalaran and URIEL: Hekhalot, and BATHALA: Apokalypsis 6A, at the Indieket on August 10, at the Bayanihan Center on Pioneer.
Naturally, the previous 'Verse and Bathala issues will also be available.

Most of these titles are now also available at the Filbar's branches in Megamall and Festival Mall, so you can pick them up there, too. (However, the previous issues of BATHALA: Apokalypsis are not stocked at Filbar's yet, though they should be made available on Filbar's shelves sometime after the Indieket...)

For all you mighty fine folk attending the Indieket this coming Saturday, see you there!

you can't drink just six,
