Pop on over to Uno Morato to get a glimpse of the burgeoning Pinoy komiks! scene in the Philippines. Founded by three komiks! creators themselves, they fill the need for those of us who need a fix of komiks! in between Komikons, which by the way will be happening this Saturday at the Bayanihan Center in Pasig on November 15, 2014.
The komiks! scene continues to flourish. Tabi Po vol. 2 will be out. Gabrielle Chee Kee of Parokya ni Edgar fame brings their Mang Jose character to life, a superhero who forks over a bill once he has rendered his superhero services. Trese 6 is coming, but will miss the Komikon, to come out on 12/13/14, an auspicious date. (Btw, did you know the six Trese covers combine to make a giant Trese portrait! Awesome.)
And finally, Fully Booked is now selling Meganon comics beside/s Visprint.
Onward and upward, the golden age of Pinoy Komiks! 🙂
