Good day to the followers of my work. 😀
If you guys want to know more about my next graphic novel this year, please continue reading. Here is a brief summary of it: The title is going to be “Berdugo”, which means executioner in Filipino. It’s going to be a story about a son’s love for his own father. This time around I’ll make an adventure/tragic comedy story. The story goes with the protagonist, with the lives of the father and son and one of them will accidentally be transported to an unknown place. I won’t tell you the important turning points and the plot of the whole story right now though. Of course, I will also still inject the usual silliness the Killer Kamote Komiks way. There will also be a prophecy about a soon-to-be-born baby who will become the greatest assassin the universe will ever know. Either that, or he’ll just become an insane underwear model.
To all the followers of my work, you guys can expect to devour this graphic novel before August 2018. 😀

Here’s a preliminary sketch of the cast of characters on my next graphic novel, “Berdugo”. I just drew this today but I am going to start making this comic by mid-May 2018.
Oracle, is the prophet in the story. Siomai, a cat. Here in the Philippines, Siomai is a name of a food which is a dumpling and there is also a saying where a Siomai is made of the meat of a cat. But we don’t eat cats here though. Kanuto is the father in the story. Kanuto for me, means like a knucklehead or kamote, which means like a stupid person in Filipino as my folks used to call me that when I was a lot younger. The protagonist, I’m not yet that sure if I’m going to call him Bugoy or Tukmol. Bugoy actually means like a hippie in Filipino. Tukmol also falls under the definition of the word Kanuto. Hanep, is a dog and the word hanep is a slang word in Filipino like the mostly used word, astig, which means awesome, rad or cool. In the provinces in the Philippines, Filipinos actually eat dog meat. Though, I think, now, they made it illegal. I don’t eat dogs and I also think that’s not quite right. Lastly, Tala, is the protagonist’s love interest, the word means a star in Filipino. I’m also not yet that sure but it’s highly likely that I’m going to draw this graphic novel with a cartoony style, like the way I drew these characters as you can see on the image above. 😀
That’s it for now.
