ISSUE ONE: Bayani, a boy of 11, is desperately trying to care for his sick father (a fisherman) and keep food on the table for his small family. Unfortunately, the sun has been shining down on the islands for the last month and night refuses to fall. The land is growing parched from the constant heat and the fish are moving further and further away from shore. During this disaster, the rain god, Pati', recruits Bayani to undertake a quest rescuing the nine kidnapped daughters of Lady Moon from the horrible monsters of lore. Bayani embarks on a great adventure with his friend, Tala, and using their wits, the kids defeat one hideous creature after another in their quest to rescue each of the Moon's daughters.
This series is designed a bit like an Indiana Jones movie. It's an adventure through myth and legend. And, like an Indiana Jones flick, the titles change with each issue. The first issue is entitled "Bayani and The Old Ghosts" after the Multo, the ghosts of past Babaylons (shaman) that Bayani meets who help guide his way. The second issue is "Bayani and The Witch of the Mountain," after the Lalahan, a monstrous volcano goddess holding the first Moon daughter hostage. The naming convention goes on from there for each individual issue. The collected editions, published by Caliber Comics, will be "Bayani and The Nine Daughters of the Moon" Volumes 1 through 4, hopefully releasing twice a year! Each collected edition will feature a unique cover, and include each of the single issue covers, as designed by Grant Perkins.
BAYANI - The Series
An All-Ages comic series for anyone to enjoy!
ISSUE TWO: Bayani and Tala didn't expect to actually FIND a monstrous guardian at the top of Mt. Makiling but now that they have, it's a battle of wits against the roaring fire and rage of the Lalahan! If the kids can rescue the Moon's daughter, Amparo, they have some hope of discovering where they have to go next!
