“Finally, after a year of preparation, it’s here at last.
My first graphic novel, Love is in the Bag Volume 1, will be available at FULLY BOOKED and POWERBOOKS as early as next week. 🙂 It’s 244 pages long and retails at PHP388.oo
It is a romance comedy with some basketball thrown into the mix.

Here’s the synopsis:
A wacky comedy about a romance that never quite goes as planned.

Timid, 16-year old Kate Mennella is just like any average high school girl from Saint Xander International High; she studies hard and has a crush on their basketball star Calvin Jacobs.
Except she has a distinct disadvantage compared to the other girls: Whenever Kate gets excited…something happens to her.
To make matters worse, Calvin Jacobs is unbelievably dense, and our poor heroine is completely invisible to him. Unable to do anything but literally stay silent whenever he’s around, it’s up to Kate’s more agressive best friend, Kara Francesco, to step in and get these two lovebirds together–by any means necessary.
Chock-full of silly gags, awkward situations, and tingly romance, Love is in the Bag is an atypical love comedy that’s sure to brighten your day…and prove that in love, with the right set of friends, it’s all in the bag.


Please go and support my artists and I by purchasing a copy of the book! Sulit sya! 😀
EDIT: It is now available at the following outlets –
Fully Booked:
The Fort, Rockwell, Gateway, North EDSA, Greenhills
Alabang Town Center, Filinvest, Glorietta, Greenbelt, Megamall, Shangri-La, Ermita Midtown, and SM Cebu (hehe)

If ever you go and they no longer have stock, please let the staff know so they can notify their head office who will in turn notify me to deliver more books. 🙂 ” – Ace

  1. Wow! I first saw the copy at Powerbooks, Mall of Asia, it sounds so exciting coz I really wonder what happens to her when she gets “excited.”

    Upon knowing it’s published by Pinoy, I’ll grab more copies to share with my friends.
