For example, the idea of retelling Filipino epic poem "Biag ni Lam-ang" as a sci-fi graphic novel. My husband Mike has a thousand and one ideas like this, and for this particular story he actually knew what he wanted to do and how he was going to write it. But it sounded like such a wacky project. How could we even get that off the ground? Who would draw it? How would it even get distributed and printed?
And then, lo and behold --
A year after I first heard his story outline, likely somewhere along C5 or Buendia, it is here, and it is called The Lam-Ang Experiment (Book One: Alan M.G.). Written by Michael A.R. Co and illustrated by the talented guys at Creative Media and Film Society of the Philippines, this is just the first of three graphic novels that put the Lam-Ang story in space.
Since its release on Amazon last week, it has made it to #1 on Amazon's Hot New Releases chart for Sci Fi Graphic Novels a few times. And yes, I'm very proud. :)
Thank you for the support!
