Everybody's favorite Pinoy superheroine is back at book stores after some years of anticipation from fans and the industry alike. Zsazsa Zaturnnah sa Kalakhang Maynila (Part 1 of 3) became available just this January 25 ( and earlier in some bookstores, which fans shared). And has been well received by its readers. It was expected to debut this last November Komikon but was just pushed back a little further but people never got tired of waiting. In this new saga of Ada and her alter ego Zaturnah, she and Dodong now living in the busy city, a break away from the rural life they had after fighting giant frogs, zombies and alien amazonas. In this chapter in their lives, they try to adjust to urban living and getting along with people around them.
And indeed from the cover it already gets you attention which I think is inspired with classic comic layouts and poses and given the 'touch' of terms making it an eye-catcher. Then for its contents, it still retains its very dramatic yet compelling art and story which readers admire. And it still contains gay lingo (beki language) that seems like reading a bilingual book yet one can still get what it means and its humor essence.
With this first part making us excited forAda/Zaturnnah's return but also leaves a short cliffhanger to be excited for the second part. It has been so far fun with new characters also unique and interesting. A great job by Carlo Vergara for sharing another Zaturnnah story which is also celebrating almost a decade and made its as far as CCP to Silver screens.
We are now waiting for any announcement of when the second book will be available.
Congratulations again to Carlo Vergara on this book launch and the the 10th anniversary of Zsazsa Zaturnnah!
