We attended Komiket 2016 and one of the best things we got to take home was this short graphic novel called 12:01 by Russell Molina and Kajo Baldisimo.

It's a very simple but powerful story about a rock band missing curfew time during the Martial Law years. This small book reminds us of the terror and fight for freedom that happened during that time. A message that I myself somehow have to re-learn and then pass on to Matt.

Here's author Russell Molina who talks about 12:01:

Not sure yet where 12:01 will be available, but I assume you can purchase it directly from Adarna House HERE or at the next Komiket, at Komikon, and at the Manila International Book Fair. I also assume it will be available, if it isn't already, at major bookstores.
