The signing is specially for the Philippine release of the SLG Edition of \”Where Bold Stars Go To Die\”, but please feel free to bring any or all comic books I\’ve […]

\”Where Bold Stars Go To Die\”, a comic book I wrote that my late friend Arlan Esmeña illustrated was finally published in the US via SLG Publishing. If you\’re in the US or anywhere outside the Philippines, you can just order it directly from the SLG website here. If you\’re in the Philippines, this edition […]

I\’ve been inking comics professionally now for like well, since 1995. You would think I\’d get tired of it, bit I\’m honestly not. Admittedly, there was a time that I quit. This was back in 2005. That was not because I didn\’t like to ink anymore, but because I wanted to expand my creativity to […]

What have I been up to? Well, speaking for today at least, I\’m recovering from this disgustingly hideous fucking boil that\’s decided to erupt on my butt. Now that may seem funny to you, but it isn\’t. It really isn\’t. Since I spend a lot of my time sitting down writing and drawing, taking a […]

The crowd at Komikon yesterday, right on top of this post, just to give you an idea of how crazy it was. I was taken quite by surprise by the sheer amount of people who showed up. Having gone to this thing for years, I have a fair idea of the amount of people who […]

Spending the day getting ready for the 7th Annual KOMIKON, the Philippine Komiks Convention. I can\’t believe it\’s already seven years running. Not only is this thing still going strong, it\’s even expanded to include a special Summer Komikon every May or April for the last couple of years. That\’s two KOMIKONs a year! That\’s […]

This coming Saturday, November 19, is the 7th Annual Komikon, the largest comic book convention in the Philippines. And yep! I\’ll be there the entire day so if you have anything you wanted signed or if you just wanted to talk, I\’m game! Click for Larger Image Thanks to Komikon for making me a guest […]

Arlan and Me Drawing

Rummaging through my old hard drive I found this video I had forgotten was shot, of Arlan drawing a page from \”Where Bold Stars Go To Die\” and me drawing Elmer while we listen to a comics podcast and trade ideas and stories. It\’s a relatively quiet moment, intense as we were on what we […]

When Komikero Ryan Toledo posted this photo up at his Facebook, I couldn\’t help but shed a tear. It\’s been a while since I saw a \”new\” old photo of Arlan, and it reminded me of just how much I missed him. Those of you who bought \”Where Bold Stars Go To Die\” know Arlan […]

ELMER will be released both in North America and Europe from two different publishers at the end of 2010. SLG Publishing (formely Slave Labor Graphics) will be publishing ELMER in North America and other English speaking territories of the world in November 2010. SLG currently offers the first 30 pages of ELMER for free via […]

It\’s been a while since my last update. I\’ve been busy inking Avengers, as well as a few pages of Hulk somewhere in there. For a couple of days last week I was flat on my back because of a few bastard biscuits that didn\’t seem to agree with me. It spawned all kinds of […]

Also available at my table is \”UMLAUTS and ATOM BOMBS\” which brings back to print \”July 16\”, my story about the 1990 earthquake, as well as a brand new short story called \”Mitch and Mischa\” illustrated by Marivi Hilos-Nepomuceno, who was a regular contributor to GASI\’s love story komiks in the 80\’s and 90\’s. I\’m […]

I want to thank the organizers of yesterday\’s Renaissance event, all the artists gave their time to do sketches, Leinil Francis Yu, and all the people who came and supported us. It was completely unexpected that the money generated from the sketches, as well as Leinil\’s sketchbooks and original artwork, was eventually donated towards the […]

February 18, 2010 Arlan passed away at 5:30 this morning. :( Thanks for all your comments. Arlan was very appreciative of all the messages posted for him on this blog. I printed out the comments and gave it to him, and he read them all himself just a few days ago. The Art of Arlan […]
