Before I go to Iloilo tomorrow, I thought I’d upload this complete story written and illustrated by one of the country’s most unusual cartoonists. Dante is known locally as a comic strip artist, but I didn’t know he actually drew comics until I saw this one. And it’s a truly bizarre one. In a komiks industry where experimentation is rare, this comics story truly stands out in its style and execution.
I remember getting in touch with Dante about buying the original artwork for this set, and I’m still interested, but hopefully it’s still available when I can finally afford it.

DANTE PEREZ’S THE CURSED
Thanks to Auggie Surtida for lending me the ARGH! comics issue that this story appears in. I’ll return it tomorrow! :D
Inkers have historically been the whipping boys and girls of the comics industry. A lot of the flak we get come from the fact that our job is one of the most difficult to understand outside those who actually do it for a living. Even I, an artist, didn’t completely understand it until I worked as one for many years.
In a move to recognize the efforts and artistry of inkers, and to hopefully put the inkers in their true and proper place in the comic book industry, “The Inkwell Awards” have been organized, which will recognize the best among us in the field.
