Budjette Tan Stories

He supposedly grew up in a haunted house and was told to sleep early because there were aswang outside their bedroom window. Who would’ve known that these stories would later influence and inspire him to write the comic book TRESE. Budjette Tan is the writer and co-creator of the three time winner of Best Graphic Literature of the Year in the Philippine National Book Awards. (2009, 2011, 2012)

By the way, his name is pronounced “budget”, but please don’t ask him any questions about finance.

He is also the writer and co-creator of “THE DARK COLONY Book 1: Mikey Recio and the Secret of the Demon Dungeon”, which also won the same award in 2013.

Budjette is one of the founding members of ALAMAT COMICS, a group of independent comic book creators that came together in 1994. He was a contributor and co-editor to the comic book anthologies COMICS 101, ALAMAT 101, UNDERPASS, and KWENTILLION, as well as the THE LOST JOURNAL OF ALEJANDRO PARDO: CREATURES AND BEASTS OF PHILIPPINE FOLKLORE and THE BLACK BESTIARY: AN ALEJANDRO PARDO COMPENDIUM.
