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 […]

The December issue of Rogue Magazine carries with it a one page comic strip depicting a short history of Philippine Comics. In it, the writer asserts that Carlo J.

People will still probably remember (and recently a few of them reminded me they do) the good old days of heated debates on this blog. Yeah, that was quite something, wasn\’t it? I was pretty opinionated back then, and yes, I still am today. But there is a difference. Towards the end of those days […]

Here on this blog, I said that we should stop dreaming of ever expecting komiks to go back to the old golden days where komiks sold […]

More than a few people have said they were either scared or intimidated by me. I was never told in person, but always through a friend, or through Ilyn, or through a Facebook/Twitter post or blog entry. To be honest, I\’m not really too surprised. I have been told I had this mean look in […]
