ABLAZE Publishing’s comic Trese, created by writer Budjette Tan and artist Kajo Baldisimo, is now represented globally in all categories for merchandising by Reemsborko.

Trese is phenomenal storytelling,” says Max Arguille, owner, Reemsborko. “Budjette and Kajo first learned of these mythical beasts as kids via bedtime stories from their parents. Once the Netflix series hits, we should already have product in the market for the fans.”

Seven volumes of the comic have so far been released in the Philippines and are now being republished worldwide by ABLAZE.

Clothing is about to appear in the U.S. courtesy of two apparel licensees and apparel is in discussion already in Europe. The property will debut via an animated version on Netflix as well.

“We are delighted to have Reemsborko on board helping create a must-have range of merchandising for Trese,” says Rich Young, co-founder, ABLAZE. “This is going to be great.”
