    congratulations on elmer making it to the world stage! is this a Filipino first?

  2. Gerry Alanguilan on June 29th, 2010 2:33 pm

    I don’t think so Benj. Aster is probably the first. We can count probably Whilce’s Stone, as well as Leonard Banaag, Philip Tan and Gary Mayorlago’s Taleweaver.

    Gio Paredes’s Kalayaan is also being printed and distributed abroad now.

    also LOLA by elbert or , right?

    If we take into consideration Filipinos based abroad (the writer of Lola is J. Torres from Canada), then we definitely have a long list of books written and drawn by Filipinos to be published internationally. There’s basically the stuff created by Rod Espinosa (for Antarctic) and books by the Luna Brothers.

    Pati ba ikaw Raipo manong na rin tawag mo sa akin? ha! ha! Yang Bidjo na yan!
    Salamat men! 2010 is making up for the bitches 2007, 2008 and 2009 were.

  8. benj on June 29th, 2010 11:24 pm

    i see. i didn’t know aster was locally made, i was a kid when it came out, but weren’t the others you mentioned already attached to foreign companies as they were being released? as opposed to a local indie that was picked up for publishing/distribution abroad? anyway this should inspire us indies to do better :)

    Congrats Gerry!

    Will ELMER have new bonus materials?

    Are you going to use the Gaiman quote as a blurb :)

  10. Gerry Alanguilan on June 30th, 2010 7:12 am

    Gaiman’s blurb will definitely be used. :D But there really won’t be any other new material in it.

  11. Eula on June 30th, 2010 1:17 pm

    That’s great! I love stuff published by Slave Labor. This is really exciting.

  12. JOsel nicolas on June 30th, 2010 1:21 pm

    Congrats sir!! Definitely well deserved! And are the Luna Brothers filipino?

  13. ron tan on July 1st, 2010 2:31 pm

    Congratulations Sir Gerry!!! :D

  15. Budjette on July 1st, 2010 3:26 pm

    gerry! will the books be published the same size as the Pinoy version?

  16. Leinil yu on July 1st, 2010 3:31 pm

    congrats, man! wow, french? does it mean it also comes out as an album? (oversized and hard bound?

    In any case, this is great news.

  17. Gerry Alanguilan on July 1st, 2010 5:38 pm

    Nil! Yes, I think they wanted a much larger size for the French edition and asked for like 800 or 900 dpi files. Unfortunately, even though I hand drew the pages, some of the artwork was created in the computer at only 600dpi. So they might be sticking with the original size.

  18. Nerp on July 2nd, 2010 8:38 am

    WOW! congrats Gerry!!!

    more power!

  19. Noel Tuazon on July 2nd, 2010 10:42 am

    Congrats Gerry! Great to see your hard work paying off.

  20. Choi Lat on July 4th, 2010 4:32 am

    Uuuuy, congrats sa exposure na to Sir Gerry.

    Can’t wait dun sa short film about “Bold Star…”. Sana magkaron ng other ways para mapanood siya if ever (e.g. like ibenta sa cons etc.)
