MANILA – The rumors are true. Local publishing house Visprint, home of books by Bob Ong and Manix Abrera, confirmed on Monday that it is set to close in 2021. In a Facebook post, Visprint cited the retirement of the pillars of the company after decades of service. It added that new titles will no longer be released but existing books will be sold – while supplies last – until the publishing house closes down. Visprint has become the home of award-winning Filipino writers and artists such as Ong (“ABNKKBSNPLAKo?!”), Abrera (“Kikomachine Komix Blg. 1”), Eros Atalia (“Ligo na U, Lapit na Me”), and Carlo Vergara (“Ang Kagila-gilalas na Pakikipagsapalaran ni Zsazsa Zaturnnah”), to name a few.
