Tikbalang Tales

Nogoshiauthor info

A teacher, a tattooist, and a Tikbalang walk into a bar... Welcome to The Balete, a refuge for the Lost and respite for the monsters of the Philippines used to scare children into an early bedtime. But these bedtime stories are real as a vampire croons the night away and a horse man serves you the bar's infamous Tikbalang Tail. Our tattooist, Marisol, is far too familiar with these monsters. Her old friend Mel, though, shouldn't be.
