In connection with my previous post, I would like to share an image that compares Leinil\’s pencils with my inks, taken from a panel detail from Civil War 2 #4. As you can see, more than just \”tracing\” is going on. In fairness to Leinil, most of his pencils aren\’t like this. As with any […]

I\’ve finally finished the inks on all 5 issues of Civil War II and I\’m really glad I got to ink every single interior page of it, with no line rushed or thrown away. It really feels good that I get to accomplish a book in this way, working on all pages without the need […]

Civil War 2, the sequel to Marvel Comics\’ Civil War is basically the main comics project that has preoccupied me for most of the year so far. I\’m inking this over my long time partner Leinil Francis Yu. It\’s written by Charles Soule and colored by Sunny Gho. I\’m currently working on issue #5, the […]

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 […]

Click for Larger Image I\’ll be having a comic book signing this coming Saturday, March 15, 2014 at Comic Odyssey, Robinson\’s Galleria from 1-4pm. 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 […]

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 […]

We leave tomorrow for our two week trip! I\’ve been so busy trying to finish an issue of Avengers as well as manage the various little (and big) concerns of running the house that I really haven\’t paid full attention to our specific travel plans. Apparently, I made a mistake in reading our plane ticket. […]

In a few days I\’ll be in Iloilo for the first Iloilo Comics Convention. That\’s not just the reason though, it\’s also a bit of a vacation time for me and Ilyn. A bit of food tripping, a bit of ghost hunting, a bit of sightseeing. But mostly food tripping. I liked my last two […]

Quite a few people have asked me during the signing and through email if I had inked Indestructible Hulk #1. The confusion is understandable because my name doesn\’t appear in the credits of the book. But yes, I did ink all the pages in the issue, and my name was unfortunately left out. They have […]

I\’m now currently working on the 2nd issue of The Indestructible Hulk as Leinil Francis Yu\’s inker. I got terribly sick during work on the first issue, but I\’m very glad I was given the opportunity to finish it. So right now I\’m trying to catch up as a lot of pages of #2 need […]

That was an intense two weeks. I got back from Singapore two weeks ago, and although my trip was fantastic and I loved it, I got a very very nasty case of the flu immediately upon returning, and it put me down for the next two weeks. I feel bad for the time I lost, […]

There will definitely be a Free Comic Book Day here in the Philippines, which happens world wide on May 5, 2012. There will be several stores in Manila that will have their own special events, but every year, the one at Comic Odyssey at Robinson\’s Galleria will be where I\’ll be hanging out. This event […]

Click for Larger Image I began sending submissions to Marvel Comics in 1986. Back then I was so confident of my \”talent\” that I worried that I would have to stop going to school so I can begin work at Marvel right away. I mean, I thought I was that good. But then this rejection […]

Hello March! This Saturday, March 10, I\’ll be in Powerbooks in Greenbelt, Makati for a SUPERIOR signing with Leinil Francis Yu. Superior is a title written by Mark Millar and the compiled hard cover book has just been released. Due to health problems early on, I wasn\’t able to ink bits of this book, but […]

Last February 2, 2012, we moved out of our apartment to a new place. Well, it\’s not exactly new, as it\’s the house I used to live in before I got married. We didn\’t plan on moving out just yet, but we realized that my parents were getting a little too old to live by […]
