After “Asuang”, PMP’s 8th issue will be “Firestarter”

Ilang linggo nang tapos ang launching ng Paper Monster Press 7: Asuang (Tag-ulan Issue) sa Flip and Beyond Resto Bar, Dasmariñas, Cavite. Hanakanangtok…’di ako nakapunta. Kaya ‘di ko pa rin nahihipo ‘yong complimentary copy ko. Sal’mat much na lang sa mga nag-a-upload:

Chris Bird made ze graphics, Fred Agustin did ze layout 🙂

O’nga pala, para sa ikawalong isyu ng Paper Monster Press, i-install sa utak ang mga pasakalye ng bagong tema (Firestarter) ng PMP sa baba lalo na kung trip mong magpasa ngayong Issue 8:

From the original firestarter, Prometheus, who brought man the gift (or curse?) of fire to the decadent rebel without a cause, James Dean, the anti-heroes have always intrigued and haunted the imagination. This issue is about the instigators, the misfits, the tricksters; the ordinary denizens of the world made extraordinary by their gift of rebellion.
