“One only dies once… and if one does not die well, a good opportunity is lost… and will not present itself again.”
– Buster #1 by Peejay Catacutan
Buster #1 is a beautiful story that brings the future in the context of the past. It is filled with non-stop action and Philippine history. The main character of the story is a Philippine hero brought back to life to become the hope against the despair brought by the tyrants. Peejay conveys a beautiful message about the society and how one man can start a revolution.
William taps into everyone’s innate fear of stagnation and monotony and lingers until the last possible second making the pay off at the end that much more satisfying.
