(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 […]

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 […]

For some reason, I’m more invested now in elections than I ever was before. It’s probably because I am older, and I can see the big picture more clearly. And from this vantage point, I can see and understand just how powerful our vote is in determining our fate and our future in this country. […]

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 […]

Click for Larger Image. Photo by Skyworld. “Insane” is such an overused word to describe Komikon. I used that word a lot. But I’m honestly at a loss to use any other word to perfectly describe it. Well, perhaps “INSANER” would be apt. Because that’s just how it was. This thing just keeps getting bigger […]

The first Iloilo Comics Convention is going to be held on December 2, 2012 at the Robinson’s Place Iloilo, Corner De Leon & Quezon Streets, Iloilo City. The event will be from 10am to 9pm. I’ll be there to promote ELMER. National Book Store will be on hand of course, and although there’s no definite […]

Komikon 2012 was yesterday, and although I was only able to spend a few hours in the afternoon, I was very happy to see how much this convention has grown. It now occupies the hallways and adjoining conference rooms to make for a much bigger event. I took my camera and just went around taking […]

“Epic” is such an overused word, but to be honest, there’s really no other way to describe this past weekend. It was truly epic. A once in a lifetime event or more appropriately, a series of events. May 26, Saturday, with Summer Komikon at the Bayanihan Center. The crowd at its peak was just INSANE. […]

In the last 10 or so years, appreciation for an earlier generation of comic book creators has grown here in the Philippines. It’s something that I personally feel very happy for because there a lot of things to admire in the decades of work that the men and women of Philippine comics have done. In […]

Click for Larger Image The first issue of Supercrooks, written by Mark Millar, pencilled by Leinil Francis Yu and inked by me has just recently been released, and Leinil and I will have a signing at the Robinson’s Galleria branch of Comic Odyssey. This will be on March 24, Saturday, from 1-4 pm. Take note: […]

We’re 10 days into January and I haven’t posted anything yet! Anyway, it’s a new year and I’m still working. And I’m extremely grateful for that. I never forget how lucky I am to be working at all, in an industry that I just love to death. A new year comes with new projects! Finally […]

Last Saturday I was at Fully Booked at Bonifacio High Street to participate in the Vinyl+Splash, The Ultimate Collectibles and Comics Convention. However, the primary purpose of the event seemed to be a series of auctions of artwork donated by comics, street and vinyl artists to benefit the United Nations World Food program. At the […]

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 […]

November is just around the corner and pretty soon, it’s 2012! 2011 has been another eventful year for me personally. A LOT of changes. A few health issues have forced me to look very closely at and prioritize the most important things in life. Family and work, basically. In that order. I lost a LOT […]
