Less Words, More Pictures

Interesting. I've always wanted to check out Arnold Arre's Mythology Class but never got a chance. So am glad they finally compiled it in a trade. As blogger and graphic artist Jonas Diego describes it:

Mythology Class tells a story that took a lot from our rich cultural heritage (which we often take for granted) and weaves it into a tale that entices and entertains. Much like how Gaiman (the comparison is a deliberate one) takes mythology and gives it a new spin, Arnold digs deep into our own backyard, so to speak, to show us wonders we never thought existed or disregarded in our own native land.

Unfortunately, wasn't able to go to the signing but I did see lots of copies of this at Fully-Booked. Don't you just love it when you have something to look forward to?
