Komikon 2007

It was my first time to attend the komiks convention yesterday in the Bahay ng Alumni in UP Diliman. It was great! My only problem is that I kept on sweating because of the heat. (I wish next time it would be held in a more ventillated place or better yet, airconditioned) I wasn't able to buy a lot of comics because of my time limit in the event. Below are the comics I bought yesterday (I already bought Mangaholix2 and kikomachine3 a day before komikon) :

Saw some old UP FA colleagues and also met a lot of comic pips (Thanks to Stan Chi). How I wish I had more time to check out the indies. (I also forgot to approach some people.. sorry!) Met my favorite artist, Carlo Vergara!!! At last, I got the last copy of the old "One Night in Purgatory" sayang, I'm sure a lot of my officemates would want a copy of this as well as kubori kikiam. Komiks atbp.5 by Point Zero was already sold out when I arrived. Too bad, I didn't get to see my own comics inside that issue (Wonder Callboy). Congrats to all of you who were able to release an issue this komikon. I didn't realize that there were a lot of cute comic book artists - naks! (uuuy may tuwang tuwa diyan na isa).
Ended my day with a dinner in Serendra with relatives.

Carlo J. Caparas komiks

At last, I was able to discover a small sari sari store that sells CJC komiks! The komiks didn't disappoint me. In fact it was above my expectation. I really find the price very cheap for the quality of the art and story I'm getting.
