GAH! I've been so busy lately that KOMIKON 2007 has closed in on me, and I just finished everything I needed to do for that event in the nick of time (I hope).
KOMIKON will be held at the UP Bahay ng Alumni, this Saturday, November 17, 2007. I think the doors will be open by 10:00am.
So... let me pimp a couple of things that will be available from my end...
The fifth issue of TABLOID KOMIKS will be available. It should have been available since the start of this year (and if you look closely at the image above, it clearly states January 2007), but I haven't had the time or means to distribute it properly. Oh, and sadly, it won't be free anymore. But I hope you guys still buy it, since it's reasonably priced at PhP10.00. It's got a great story by Josel Nicolas, illustrated by Ian Iranda (my brother, that's just his pen name, in case you were wondering about the last name). Also, a Maskarado short story by partners-in-crime Dodo Dayao and Bong Leal, and a thought-provoking piece by Randy Valiente.
Also, MASKARADO: VISIONS, the portfolio/comic celebrating 15 years of Maskarado will also be available. The cover above was done by Kajo Baldisimo. It's jam-packed with art by Leinil Yu, Hal Santiago, Gerry Alanguilan, Gilbert Monsanto, Edgar Tadeo, Dell Barras and a whole lot more! Plus a 7-page story by Gio Paredes and myself, and a short prose piece written by Budjette Tan. All for the measly price of PhP30.00! What a bargain, eh?
I'll be sharing a table with Alamat Comics. Stop by and say hi to us! :)
