The Kult of Komikon by Ramon De Veyra The Philippine Star November 30, 2008 \”This year’s Komikon may have been the best ever. It certainly seemed like it had the best attendance. People filled up the narrow aisles, jostling for space among the boxes and tables of cool swag.\” For the full article, click here: […]

Yes, I\’m embarrassed to admit, there are a few errors in Elmer #4. It\’s all my fault. I had been trying to finish Elmer #4 just in time for Komikon. The printer needed the files and I\’d been up all night laying it out and proofreading it. I basically had an hour for final proofread […]

Komikon 2008: The 4th Philippine Comics Convention http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5I63GL0pbs Normally, I would upload my Komikon video the night of the Komikon or a day after. This time, it took me 5 days. Komikon this year was more exhausting than usual, and I just spent the entire night and the rest of the next day resting. Then […]

By 12 noon it was already quite difficult to go around. There were that many people. I don\’t have a headcount, but it\’s quite plain to anyone who was there last year that this year\’s crowd was just insane. I\’ve had little opportunity to go around myself as I was almost completely tied to my […]

I\’ll have more to say tomorrow when I\’ve gotten a bit of rest. But first, thanks to all those who stopped by the booth to pick up Elmer #4, and Elmer back issues. I sold around 200 copies of #4! The crowd this year is INSANE! I don\’t have a head count, but based on […]

And it\’s all mine! And the strange thing is, I\’ve had it for 10 years. At my parents\’ house. Jammed inside my other junk in my old room. As anyone who knows me will know, I fall prostrate like a gibbering fan girl at the foot of Barry Windsor Smith. For those who don\’t know […]

In true Elmer fashion, Elmer #4 will most likely make another last minute grand entrance to the Komikon. I\’ll be bringing the files to the printer on Monday. Oh God I love my printer. They make quality printouts of my work, and they\’re incredibly fast. This last week was the homestretch of two years with […]

\”Tres Komikeros\” is a comics podcast website by a group of Cebu based comic book fans (and starting pros) which I listen to while I work. They\’re mostly fans of Marvel, DC and independent comic books so if you\’re going to listen to them, expect that they review newly released stuff from titles like Superman, […]

This is artwork by Arlan Esmeña for \”Where Bold Stars Go To Die\”. Arlan was hospitalized for a few days and was unable to draw for quite a while back in October so I was unsure whether this title will be released in time for Komikon. But he\’s working overtime now just to get it […]
