Introducing: Jumper Cable Chronicles

Ilang linggo matapos ang pasukan, simple lang naman ang gustong gawin ni Dino Soriano habang bakasyon—ang libreng makapanood ng live streaming ng laban ni Pacquiao. Kaya niya kinalikot ang mga kable ng laptop niya.

Sino ba naman ang mag-aakalang hindi si Pacquiao ang mapapalabas niya sa laptop? Nagpakilala sa kaniya ang lumitaw na bata bilang Dimension Engineer Haya Project mula sa Dimension 049. Hinahanap niya ang tumakas na kaibigang si Medical Engineer Anita Project dito sa mundo, na tinatawag ni Haya na Dimension 196.

Handa ba si Dino Soriano na maging Agent 001 ng Dimension 196?

Inihahandog ng Adarna House ang isang bagong seryeng pang-young adult: ang Jumper Cable Chronicles ni EK Gonzales, sa salin ni Xi Zuq. Iikot ito sa mga misyong kahaharapin ng isang 16-taong gulang na mapapasabak bilang dimension agent.

Lalabas sa Manila International Book Fair ang unang libro ng serye, ang Jumper Cable Chronicles: Si Santa Anita, at darating ang awtor at manunulat para pumirma ng mga libro sa aming booth sa sunod na Sabado, 3:00 NH.

Samahan ninyo kaming makilala ang ating mga bagong bida sa isang patikim—narito ang unang kabanata ng libro.

This year’s ceremonies were held on the 35th National Children’s Book Day, July 17, 2018, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines lobby.

Four Adarna House books – three from the Anino Comics imprint – were named Best Reads for Kids at the 5th National Children’s Book Awards.

• 20 % discount on individual titles
PhP650 for all 4 titles (28 % off)

Ang Hari ng Komyut
Hari ng Komyut puts into the spotlight the trials and challenges Filipinos encounter in our public transport system in a way that is lighthearted and comic—but still drives a serious point. Masterfully executed, these comics strips shed light on the comedy of everyday commuting tragedies and the tragedy of everyday commuting comedies; reminding us that there is always hope at the next train. – Manix Abrera

Lost
For a wordless comic book to be good, the artist has to maintain the balance between what information is given and what is kept hidden for the reader to interpret on their own. Lost has found that balance. With that, it is able to tell a story of great adventure while giving the reader freedom to translate the pictures using their own experiences and emotions to understand what is happening. It is a breathtaking testament to the power of comics. – Manix Abrera

Meläg
Isinabuhay ang nagdaang panahon sa mundo ng kabataan sa probinsya ng Pangasinan gamit ang malikhaing dibuho, at paglalahad. Nakakaantig ng damdamin ngunit nakakatuwa. – Edgardo Quiros

Si Janus Silang at ang Pitumpu’t Pitong Pusong
Para sa matagumpay na panulat na pangkabataang nobela at disenyong panlibro na nakakapanghimok ng malikhaing pagbabasang malinaw na tumatahak sa kwento ng pakikipagsapalaran at paghahanap sa sarili ng tauhan–halaw sa mitolohiya at urban lore, gamit ang kontemporaryong wika at mga sandali–at mapanlarong pagsasanib ng sulat, komiks at chat sa texto na nakakapanghikayat ng malawig na gamit sa imahinasyon at diwa, at lamlamin ang pagbabasa bilang pang-araw-araw na aktibidad at pangangailangan ng isip at katawan… – Rolando Tolentino
