Comic books, despite experiencing a decline due to television and film, have been a rich source of material for these very media. At the same time, research shows that film adaptations tend to be viewed as lesser versions of the original, which George Bluestone credits to the assumption of audiences that two different media can be directly compared. Bluestone cites that in adapting a story to a different medium, the print version should be treated as raw material and that changes are inevitable . For this study, the proponents focus on the adaptation of local comic books into film, particularly of the Trese comic book series by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo due to its popularity and contribution to the resurgence of the komiks industry in recent years. The series revolves around the investigations of Alexandra Trese, a supernatural detective who deals with modern-day crimes involving creatures of Philippine folklore. This study includes a discussion on the history of local comic books in the Philippines and the film adaptation theory first posited by George Bluestone and developed by contemporary scholars.
