A true crime and horror comic book series based on the works of DC comics' Batman. The series started in 1990 and has been running ever since. As I am sure you can imagine, it is a crime fighting crime-solving adventure that is based around Batman's city, Gotham. It has been inspired by many other great works of fiction, such as The Dark Knight and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This animated series has been spectacular. From start to finish, the animation has done an excellent job of immersing us in this world. There have been some very memorable scenes, including the chase between The Riddler and Batman. I especially enjoyed the interaction between The Riddler and Cat Woman, especially their relationship and how cat woman saved The Riddler.
The second series that truly caught my attention was the Trese Comic exclusive " Gotham Central" series, written by Tom King. This series of comic books told the story of how the dark knight was dealing with a supernatural being called The Joker. This animated series featured Batman villains such as The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face, The Mad Hatter, The Ventriloquist, The Joker, and many others that worked against the dark knight.
This animated Filipino comic book series stars Eddy Almeda, Kevin Durand, Donnie Yen, and Isabel De Los Rios. It tells the story of two cops, Inspector Almeda and Detective Reyes, who stumble upon the tragic circumstances of a hit-and-run accident. They quickly discover that the driver of the vehicle that hit them was double-crossing and that he had killed his partner. This crime sends both Inspector Almeda and Detective Reyes into a race to clear the name of their fallen colleague and to clear their own names as well.
In the third entry of the Trese Comic titled "The Mystery of Raven Kalakan," another animated comic was released. Starring Aqeeq Alba and Katrina Law, the character of Raven Kalakan was introduced. She is the daughter of Inspector Almeda and First Lady Agnes dated the late dictator, Anwar. This animated crime-anthology features the works of writers Romeo Habana, Ramon Armani, and Eddy Almeda.
Another comic released in the Trese Comic line is "The Girl Who Played With Dogs." This one featured comic actress Aqeela Degacio. In this illustrated crime-anthology, she is the Assistant D.A of the newly established Forensic Department. This crime-anthology depicted her working alongside her fellow officers in doing the tedious job of apprehending criminals. Aside from her work as a detective, she also appeared in other forms like a showgirl and a bodyguard in different episodes of the animated sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond.
The last Filipino comic book that we are discussing in this article is titled "The Private Investigators: Filipino Hot Girls on Hired Sleeper" by Sunny De Olive. It was released in 2021. This is one of the oldest Philippine comic books of its kind. It is written by Filipino comic book creator Alaverdi Castillo. This fictionalized private investigation team featured several Filipino hot girls under the guise of private detectives.
Other than these Filipino comic books, Trese Comic also brought back the classic Animated Movie serials "The Return of the Jedi." Although it is already four years old, people still go crazy about this movie. Starring bikini-clad bikini models Yaya Takahashi, Daisy interspersed with Sammo and some English voices, this hit film has made the history books for sure. This is why, if you want to watch animated films or other animated series, look no further than Trese Comic at your favorite online portal.
Bob Ong is a martial arts expert, and the main character in this comic book. He is a member of the Philippines' Special Forces and is considered as a strong and fierce fighter. Because of this, he was often seen in the cities of Manila and elsewhere in the country. It is because of this that many of the martial artists and a lot of the local populace have taken to this masked avenger as their idol. In fact, many of them swear to his greatness.
Another comic from Trese Comic that we are discussing here is "Ashcan." Ashcan is the comic book version of the hit animated film "The Adventures of Tintin." The story of Ashcan revolves around a young girl who lives in the streets of Manila. She is an orphan who somehow became friends with an underground Manila rag tag group called the Ashcan Gang, which consists of her own mother and a bunch of other youngsters.
Trese Comic's other popular superheroes include the aforementioned Bob Ong, Manila's first superhero, and the story about Ashcan above. Aside from these heroes, there have also been other Filipino and Asian inspired comic book creations by Trese Comic. These creations include "Lornie Cook book about a loon who has the ability to cook when she needs to," "The Adventures of Dr. David Farley," "The Masked Avengers," and "Rice Beach: A Spaghetti Western." All these series are not only popular in their own countries but are also being sold internationally. We can expect more from this comic book publishing company in the coming years.
