Two comics conventions are happening this weekend! One if happening in Baguio on Feb 25-27 at the NEAP Building, TEACHER’S Camp, Baguio City. Venue opens at 10am and closes at 8pm.
The 2nd one is happening in Bicol, from Feb 24-26, at The Gallery, Avenue Convention Plaza, Magsaysay Avenue, Naga City.
Of course I’m ecstatic that the independent comics spirit is alive and well enough to sustain this many conventions, I’m kind of puzzled why two such significant events are scheduled to happen at the same time. Readers and even visiting professionals would have to choose which event they can go to, when they could have gone to both if dates were different. I myself would have probably gone to Bicol if I hadn’t planned on going to Baguio first. Nevertheless, I’m sure each convention would find its own regional audience and I’m confident both will be successful.
Good luck to both the Baguio and Bicol Comics Convention organizers!
