It’s been a very difficult couple of months for me, physically. I caught pneumonia late last month and as I recounted in my last blog entry, it was truly horrible. After I wrote that blog entry I thought it was all over, but much to my dismay, it took far longer to recover than I […]

Photo by Jonas Diego I think I’m still feeling a little dazed from Summer Komikon. It was probably the most physically stressful time I’ve had at a Komikon. My allergies were pretty bad that it’s embarrassing, specially since I had to talk to people a lot and do a couple of interviews. My bad knee […]

It’s 4:22am as I write this. The Wasted Box sets are not yet done, but they will be at some point in the day. Rodski books are all set downstairs. We’ll be bringing 600 of those, 100 will go to Comic Odyssey for them to sell at their stores. I know 500 copies is optimistic, […]

All of a sudden, I’m nervous. I have absolutely no idea what kind of reaction “Rodski Patotski: Ang Dalagang Baby” is going to get at this Summer Komikon on Saturday, TWO DAYS FROM NOW! I’ve always said I have strived to satisfy myself first and foremost, and if I was able to do that (satisfy […]

Arnold Arre and I will have a new book coming out at Summer Komikon on April 12, 2014. I wrote and lettered it, and Arnold Arre illustrated and colored it. Arnold’s wife Cynthia Bauzon-Arre provided us with the title design. It’s eight inches by eight inches (yes, it’s a perfectly square book!), full color, and […]

Click for Larger Image The Komikero Artists group would like to make an announcement with regards to fundraising efforts through auctions at this Saturday’s Komikon. We planned these fundraising event a few months ago, initially to benefit our fellow Komikero in need, Vergil Espinosa for his medical needs. Then the earthquake in Bohol happened, and […]

(Most photos in this article can be clicked for larger images.) Laurent Mélikian, a French comics critic who visited the Philippines in 2011 and who I met for the 7th Annual Komikon, had subsequently invited me to attend the 6th FIBDA, or the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d’Alger, or in English, the 6th […]

Above is the poster that won a contest held to celebrate the 6th Festival International de la Bande Dessinée à Alger (FIBDA), or the International Comics Festival of Algeria. Through Laurent Melikian, I was invited to attend the festival, which begins October 8 and ends October 12. There, I will unofficially represent the Philippines, bringing […]

Yep, I’m letting go a few more original inked art to Indestructible Hulk! Just so you know exactly what you’re getting, Leinil Francis Yu emails me the pencils, which I then print out on Marvel Art Boards using blue ink. I then ink on that. I scan the finished art, and that’s the inked artwork […]

Old pals Johnny Danganan, Jonas Diego and his gf Ysa along with me and Ilyn met for lunch today at Simple Treats here in San Pablo. It’s been a while since we saw each other and it’s nice to know that we can still be good friends in spite of not being constantly in touch […]

The previous blog entry “The Evolution of the Philippine Indie Comic Book” has elicited a comment from a reader asking where they can buy these comic books online. That’s an absolutely fair question. One common feedback that creators mostly get is that their work isn’t easily accessible. How does one from Davao or Palawan, or […]

Blown away by how many people showed up at Comic Odyssey and Fully Booked’s Free Comic Book Day celebration at Bonifacio High Street! I arrived around 8:30am and there was already a huge line snaking around the Fully Booked building. I’m told by pal Johnny Danganan that the earliest people in line were actually there […]

After Summer Komikon, it’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY (FCBD) on May 4! Just as the title of the event says, if you attend this event, you’ll get FREE comics! Specially if you come early. And just like Komikon, FCBD in the Philippines has slowly become bigger and bigger. As far as I know, there are […]
