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 […]

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 […]

Guys… apologies for the lack of updates. The trip to San Diego had been extraordinarily exhausting and it’s taken me at the very least two weeks to almost fully recover. There were days back there that I literally couldn’t stand up. But I’ll be back posting regularly soon, and once again begin posting my “100 […]

It’s the evening of January 1, 2011 as I write this, feeling slightly depressed. Unlike many people, I loved 2010 and I’m sad to see it go. I understand that 2010 was a bad year for a lot of folks, but it was a very good year for me. It’s quite a relief because 2007 […]

I’m currently inking Ultimate Comics Avengers Vol 4 #1, in between Superior #4 and 5. Taking more inking jobs is insane, but I don’t mind. I don’t get to ink all the pages because Leinil’s pencils are absolutely intense with details, but it seems they got pretty good inkers to help out. Now all this […]

There have been many comic book events in the Philippines in 2010, but by far the biggest one of them all is the annual KOMIKON, now going strong on its 6th straight year! It’s being held TODAY, Saturday, November 13 at the Star Mall in Mandaluyong. Doors open at 10am. Last year was a huge […]

Last July 10, 2010, I was invited to attend the freshmen initiation at the St. Paul University in Manila. The theme of their initiation was “Pinoy Komiks”, and I had been invited to give a talk on the history and the state of the Philippine comics industry. I did not hesitate to agree because more […]

I come back to inking in a BIG way with Ultimate Comics Avengers 2, #1! The issue is already out, and Leinil Francis Yu and I will be launching the title tomorrow during Free Comic Book Day, at Comic Odyssey, Robinson’s Galleria. We’ll be signing, along with Edgar Tadeo, and possibly Jay Anacleto, from 1-3pm. […]

It feels weird that at the end of the month there’s no Timawa for me to work on. For the past two years I’ve devoted this time of the month to do the comics series for The Buzz and I have to admit, I kind of miss doing it. But part of me is happy […]

Yes, it was an April Fool’s Day gag. I’ve done it here for the past several years. It’s getting harder and harder to make a gag that would make people believe. After all, I have cried WOLF! too many times during this particular day. I think the secret lies in not making it too fantastic […]

In my previous post, I mentioned how huge Philippine comics will be in 2009 in terms of events. There’s the two Komikons, one in May and another in October, then there’s the Manila Comic-Con in August, Mangaholix in November, then the San Pablo Comics Festival in December. After a meeting I had today with Mr. […]

There are many things in Philippine comics that happened this year that I can distill into a few distinct events. I counted 5 (or so I thought), which I already listed for the ComicsReporter.com site, but I felt I need to expound on it here as there are plenty more to say. 2008 saw the […]
