DIWATA

Graphic Narratives / Comics | Fall 2017

Diwata, meaning “fairy tale” or “folklore” in Tagalog, follows an estranged girl who feels disconnected from the world she is living in due to her power to see the mythical world of Philippine folklore. Fearing the disbelief and disapproval of her colleagues, Amihan chooses to keep her power a secret.

Diwata is a 25-page comic that explores the feeling of loneliness, even among friends and colleagues, and the desire to feel needed and have a presence in the world.
