I was flipping through TV channels some nights ago when I caught a bit of Spartacus: Blood and Sand on HBO (It's on HBO here in the Philippines). It got me wondering... Why do all shows about ancient Rome (and even the new series The Borgias, set in Italy) utilize British accents? It's kind of silly, right? Shouldn't they be speaking with Italian accents? :)

Metro Comic Con 2011 starts this Saturday, May 7 at the Megatrade Hall 2 at SM Megamall. It will run until Sunday, May 8. So if you're looking for something different to do this Mother's Day, this is the place to be! :)
Artist David Lloyd (V for Vendetta, among other things) will be one of the guests so don't miss out on meeting him and all the other comics creators like Tony DeZuniga, Philip Tan and a lot more at the con.
Saturday is also Free Comic Book Day, and Comic Odyssey is the most fervent supporter of this event in the Philippines. So you can also head on over to their branch in Robinson's Galleria to get free comics. I've heard that the first 600 in line will get as much as 50 free comics, so get there early, THEN head on over to SM Megamall for the Metro Comic Con! What a sweet day for comics!
