Believe it or not, Summer Komikon is THIS WEEKEND!
As the poster says, it will be held on May 26, 2012 at the Bayanihan Center, Unilab Compound, Pasig City from 10am to 7pm.
How to get there? Check out this map!
Special guests include Heubert Khan Michael, Freely Abrigo and Elmer Damaso. But you can bet a whole lot more artists from the local independent comics scene to the guys doing comics for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and Image are going to be there.
I will have a table myself, but I really won’t have any new comics to sell. I’ll probably let go a few more pieces of original artwork at that crazy slashed Komikon only prices, plus a few comics and mags in my collection that I’m willing to let go. Elmer is going to be sold by National Book Store, and I’m all out of Bold Stars. I was considering giving Summer Komikon 2012 a pass, but I thought well, I might as well go and just hang around and check out the new comics the other guys are doing.
I will also be selling sets of Arnold Arre and Budjette Tan’s “BATCH 72″ for P100 a set. This is a rare item from the early days of Alamat so get yours while I still have stocks! There are three issues in the set, all standard sized comic books.
I will also be selling other more obscure books I’ve worked on in the past.
Oh yeah! Every year there’s a huge line at the entrance to Bayanihan Center. Do you want to avoid standing in line? You can buy your tickets right now and you can just waltz in the con as soon as you arrive, providing the con is already open that is. You can buy tickets at any branch of Comic Odyssey!
AUCTION FOR MINDANAO SCHOOL CHILDREN (Lapis at Papel)
At the Komikon, there will be an auction of original artworks by the likes of :
HEUBERT MICHAEL KAHN
LEINIL FRANCIS YU
This is all for “Lapis at Papel”, a charity to benefit Mindanao school children.
And because no Komikon is complete without Omeng Estanislao’s amazing drawings….
See on the 26th!
Oh yeah, if Summer Komikon is not enough, see you as well on the following day, May 27, where you will have a chance to meet THIS guy.
I’ll be there as well, drooling. I’m a big Mark Millar fan, and it’s something that never really went away even when I got to work with him.
