Komikon Aftershock

Komikon 2008 was exhausting but very much worth it. Just like the previous Komikon. I did not had any chance to roam around because I have to man my post and sell my comics as much as I can. I have sold more comics this time than last year. From my inventory today, I have calculated that I have sold a little bit more than a 50 copies of Kalayaan (Issue 1 to 5). Last year, if I am not mistaken, I have sold a little bit more than 30 copies (Issue 1 and 2) . I only hope that the momentum of my sales would continue up to next years event.

Thats me with the two legendary comic artist. I was lucky enough that I came in early at the event that I got the chance to take a picture with them. Thanks again to Omi for taking this picture.

Manila man and his creator Rhiver. Rhiver is one of the most creative person that I know. Aside from being a good artist, he also comes up with this awesome and some times crazy concept. Just to give you an example, after Komikon we had a little dinner celebration at Shakeys. While there, I saw one of his intriguing character and asked what is his name. He said "His name is Birthday Boy, a villain that I created for Manila Man". I replied "Why Birthday Boy?", "Because he always kill a person on his Birthday."...... See what I mean.. :-)
