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 […]

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 […]

Apologies for the lack of updates. I’ve been extremely busy with inking Ultimate Avengers as I come close to finishing our last few issues. Here’s a detail from the cover to our 2nd issue which is already available now. And yeah, check out the June 2010 issue of Playboy Philippines, which may well be considered […]

Only a few hours until this auction ends! Last chance to bid! It’s very rare that I ever sell any original artwork of my own characters. This is one of the times that I do. It’s a one page illustration depicting the death of TIMAWA. In this one drawing, he truly does finally die. This […]

I think I’ll be killing Timawa today. All for a good cause. Drawing above is by Whilce Portacio.

I received some nominations for this year’s Komikon Awards! From the email from the organizing committee: CONGRATULATIONS!!! You and your works are nominated in the upcoming KOMIKON AWARDS 2009. Nominations were held last July 01 – 15, 2009. You were nominated for the following categories: For Best Graphic Novel / Anthology: Elmer by Gerry Alanguilan […]

The question of the superhero in the Philippine setting has always eluded me. And today I think I’ve hit upon one of the reasons why. I demand a lot from stories, specially my own. If I’m going to do a superhero story I wouldn’t just have him get bit by a radioactive salagubang and go […]

Oh man, it looks like a room full of naked men. That’s what I immediately thought about looking at this detail of the Timawa finale. Timawa ended in the June issue of The Buzz Magasin, and from here, I don’t know what the future holds for this character. There’s no plans of compiling it at […]

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 […]

See Larger Image Here (pictured is the SIDTAKA, the nemesis of TIMAWA) Timawa will come to a close on the pages of The Buzz Magasin with the June 2009 issue. Unfortunately, it is ending prematurely. The Buzz Magasin, in alignment with The Buzz TV, is to undergo a wide scale revamp. Timawa will not be […]

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. […]

Komikero meeting day! The sun is out and the weather is great! For a moment there I was worried because it had been raining a day or so ago. The rains were good in the end because the weather is cool once again. A lot of new guys will be coming over which should be […]

Adam David’s review of Elmer for the Philippine Free Press is now online and uploaded at my site as a scan. I redesigned the Elmer sub-site a little bit just to reflect the completion of the comic book. I just got home from Manila. I was down there visiting Leinil Yu for one reason or […]

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 […]

When I first saw these little robots… completely articulated… made from Bristol board, I freaked. Click on my friend Arlan’s Blog, click on the picture you find there to see a large photo of his bristol robot creations. That shadowbox display case by the way, is designed and created by Ilyn. They’re about the same […]
