To Philippine based readers, you can see an TV interview of me about Philippine komiks at Studio 23′s NEWSCENTRAL this coming April 27. Newscentral begins at 10:30pm and my interview will be within the last 10 minutes of the show. Other people they approached to interview include Arnold Arre and another group, so that gives me a couple of minutes, at least, of air time.
I hope some of the important points I wish to say would get through, but if not, that’s OK. Anything that gives attention to comics is a good thing. You can at least see me talk about an issue I feel that’s very important, and it’s the proper recognition and compensation for artists in one of the videos below.
Thank you very much to Sansan De Leon, Newscentral, Studio 23 and ABS-CBN for this opportunity.
I hope that one of these days someone would come up with a real hardcore 2-3 hour documentary on Philippine komiks. I think that kind of thing would be very interesting and informative to Philippine viewers.
Here are a couple of videos, the first one is my little coverage of the interview, along with a surprise visit from an old friend and Komikero:
ABS-CBN Interview and a Visit From an Old Friend
This next video was taken on the same day, but it involves less the interview, but more about catching up with an old friend, talking about and taking a piss at the rest of the Komikeros (he.he.)
Ang Pagbabalik ni Johnny!
I’ve just finished the penultimate chapter to HUMANIS REX, this full color 2-page a month series I’ve been doing for FUDGE MAGAZINE for the past two years. I will soon begin drawing the final installment and it will go out with a different kind of bang.
I’ll be announcing my next project for FUDGE, which immediately follows Humanis Rex, very soon!
