This August, with the release of The Buzz Magasin’s September issue, TIMAWA is on it’s first year of publication! This issue holds special significance for me, not only because of the one year landmark, but because it’s the debut of the SIDTAKA, the ruthless bad guys of the series. The SIDTAKA Warriors or as is referred to in the story as “Mandirigma ni Sidaka”, are characters I created waaaay back 1994 when I first created Timawa. They are the complete opposite of the APOLAKI Warriors or “Mandirigma ni Apolaki” in the story.
The Sidtaka was already hinted at in the last issue (The Buzz Magasin, August 2008), but it is in this issue where readers will find out who they really are, and what they’re capable of.
