Humanis Rex! was a proposal I’ve had in mind for many years. It was part of a proposal package I sent to a local newspaper for their Sunday color strips. That didn’t push through for one reason or another, and I proposed it again to another publication, this time a hobby magazine. Unfortunately the magazine went under after a few issues and nothing came of that.
It was a chance encounter during one of the Komikero meetings in January 2005 that got the ball rolling on putting the series to print at last. The first installment came out in April 2005, and now, two years later, the series is finally ending.
I really have to thank the Fudge Magazine people for their support, friendship and yeah, patience. Annie Alejo, who I know way back Pulp Magazine days, Ed Ramos, old classmate of mine from waaay back in college, Anna Gan, who frequently wrote to me with regards to the series. Thanks also to Oliver Kuy, who was president of publisher Sesame Seed when Humanis Rex started coming out, and was instrumental in getting the series on the magazine. And thanks also to the other people who worked behind the scenes who may or may no longer be at the mag at this time.
The END of Humanis Rex! In Fudge Magazine’s June issue!
I spent quite a bit of time to make the last part look really good, so there are some things that have been pre-empted as a result. This week’s installment of ORAS MO NA is now set for tomorrow.
