briefly noted: arre's agimat

I excitedly read a copy of Arnold Arre's new graphic novel, Andong Agimat, expecting to be floored by one of my favorite local storytellers (remember that he brought my comic book "The Lost" to life a few years ago).

While the quality of Arre's ideas has consistently grown, and while his art continues to amaze (there are more than several noteworthy sequences I can cite), I have serious issues with the book's structure, pacing and general flow.

Still, all in, it is another incredible achievement from one of the foremost comic book creators in the country. Andong Agimat will see mass release next month, so make sure to get a copy.
