I got this teaser poster again from Arnold Arre, and the book is near to hit our comic book shops and book stores. Check out also the official website http://martiallawbabies.com/

the website features a lot of goodies, from production notes, art samples and photos for the new graphic novel Martial Law Babies. Also I just found out that these teaser posters is like a countdown by year, maybe the next teaser poster is a year for 2000.

Where were you when QUAD is our Megamall and people wearing Docs and not Crocs?

About Martial Law Babies graphic novel

Award-winning graphic novelist Arnold Arre takes us on a nostalgic trip through some of the Philippines’ most colorful and compelling eras – from the rigidness of pre-EDSA Manila to the dizzying, commercially-intoxicated world of the new millenium.

Allan and his friends are Martial Law Babies: born during the Marcos regime, raised by TV, and shaped by 80s music. Their ambitions may be dampened by third world realities and malcontention but they also proudly belong to a generation of dreamers who fight for their voices to be heard. They are among the so-called “Bagong Lipunan” children, trying their best to live up to their name. But over the years, as Allan watches his friends leave one by one and feels his sense of idealism wane, he starts to wonder where they are all headed.
