When this image appeared on Facebook, I was immediately impressed by the audacity of it. I thought, holy crap, is that what I think it is? Right between the eyes? Insane, these people. It reminded me of Alex Niño, who drew genitalia in his illustrations which few people noticed because they were so awed by the awesomeness of the entire thing.
It’s an 80 page quarterly anthology which launches at Komikon in November. And they’re calling out for submissions! All dealings, pitches and submissions will be done through their Facebook Page.
From the cover alone, I have a feeling that they would be looking for material that would really push it, in all sorts of directions. And I’m interested to read what they come up with, come November!
That cover is by Mervin Malonzo, creator of the beautifully drawn Tabi Po online strip. Check that out. I think Mervin is one of the most talented young Filipino comics creators I’ve seen. Seeing his work makes me feel ecstatic for the future of Philippine comics.
