The Philippine Graphic/Fiction Awards: Comics Anthology

Neil Gaiman

PAPERBACK

January 1, 2010

An asthmatic girl, sustained by a diet of cough syrup, confronts the creatures from Hell who happen to live under her bed.

Lapu Lapu, the revered Datu of Mactan, stands on a coastline to defend his land against an approaching enemy fleet, ready to wield his blade in what would be the most significant battle of his life and his descendants' history.

The confessional becomes a safe haven for a devil gone astray.

As the sun approaches its death, homo sapiens move to other worlds and galaxies in a massive effort to avert extinction, leaving their Mother Earth.

A special boy with a special gift brings meaning and color to the lives of those around him.

A powerful curse, spanning 13 generations, tears a man and wife apart.

These fragments torn from daydreams and nightmares compose the imaginative storylines and fascinating artwork of the Philippine Graphic/Fiction Awards Anthology. As a creative venture of Fully Booked and globally renowned author Neil Gaiman, the competition called upon writers and artists all over the Philippines to take up Gaiman's challenge to encourage "Filipino Unrealism." The directive was simple: keep it unreal.

With a foreword written by Neil Gaiman, this compendium features the winners and short-listed entries of the comics category. Highly engaging, thought provoking and many times flavored with the unique Pinoy sense of humor, these stories are testament to the deep wellspring of Filipino talent and imagination.
