Two years after the release of the first volume of Tonio Tikbalang, Black Ink announces the release of its “final” volume. This will be the concluding chapter of a six book story arc.
Tonio Tikbalang is a mix of fantasy, comedy, slice of life, action, and adventure. “It is mostly about an enkanto’s life disguised as a human being,” says Jake Vicente, the creator of the said series. It reintroduced the enkantos not as an entity of evil, like what most classic horror portrayed, but as an entity trying to live in their own ways and beliefs that we humans misunderstood.
Every volume is composed of three chapters.
Chapter 1: Hiwaga ng Kasaysayan
Chapter 2: Bigat ng Kamay, Tibay ng Loob
Chapter 3: May Kaibigan Ka
Chapter 4: Itanong mo sa Barbero
Chapter 5: Girl Next Classroom
Chapter 6: Urban Legend
Chapter 7: Gawaing-Bahay
Chapter 8: Ginagawa sa Loob ng Kuwarto
Chapter 9: Albularyo
Chapter 10: Stalker
Chapter 11: Ask First, Accept Later
Chapter 12: Stalk Her
Chapter 13: Part-time Student
Chapter 14: Part-time Bantay
Chapter 15: Part-time Crime Fighter
Chapter 16: Mahika ng mga Enkanto
Chapter 17: Ang Paggamit ng Kantra
Chapter 18: Ang Kapangyarihan ng Kantra
The sixth volume of Tonio Tikbalang is scheduled to be released this month of May 2016 as part of the celebration for Free Comic Book Day, a worldwide event that promotes comics on several bookstores.
The book cover and the first few pages (Preview Room) were already revealed last week. Further information are also provided in the Q and A section of the upcoming book. And another arc might be possible should there be an overwhelming demand from our readers.
