Last Saturday I was at Fully Booked at Bonifacio High Street to participate in the Vinyl+Splash, The Ultimate Collectibles and Comics Convention.

Up until recently I’ve generally accepted invitations to give talks at schools and universities in Manila, but over the last year or so it’s become difficult for me to accommodate invitations for various reasons.
