The launch was also was my first ever hosting gig! All for the love of komiks! I was nervous and all but The Trese Fans, Budjette and Kajo made it easy for me! Everyone was so participative so thanks a lot guys!!! :) 

The event was also the unveiling of the TRESE-fied iPad that's being raffled!!! I'm telling you, the iPad is so damn gorgeous with Kajo's art!!!
