I just saw his comic proofs last sunday at the Neil Gaiman event, and Arnold showed the proof samples to Leinil Yu, when I was about to approached them, Leinil told me, “Hey Az, this is confidential, Arnold’s new comic project”, I was surprised to know about that from him, and I looked at Arnold and I was laughing and told them, “its okay! I wont blog it”. Then Cynthia Arre told me and Mark Cerbo about the story and the title – Martial Law Babies!. and i just found out that I belong to that era – Martial law years and 30 yr old kids!.

Now that the news came out already frm Luis Katigbak’s blog, I guess its already okay to post and publish it here.
and thanks to Mr. Babbling Point  aka Budjette Tan for posting it in Alamat ML 🙂

but the  greatness of this project ( no longer a secret hehehee ) – yes I’m going crazy and already forgotten the news about Andong Agimat the movie.

“I’m in the process of developing two stories,” Arnold tells us. The first is Martial Law Babies, “a coming-of-age story about a group of 30-somethings. We follow the lives of the characters, from their childhood memories to a present-day setting. It’s a very personal story, and it came to me during one of those conversations with college friends over coffee. I also wanted to tackle some issues like where have our peers gone, what did they become? Why are we losing more and more talented people to first world countries? What role do we play in society? And aren’t the younger generations getting better breaks in terms of work since they’re adept in technology and from our perspective, more pampered? So I guess in a way another take on the title is that of us being trapped, we’re under Martial Law so to speak. It’s nearing completion, so hopefully we’ll get to see it in printed form sometime soon.”   – Arnold Arre
