The poster that they are holding above will be put on all of the FOREX branches for all the Filipino community would know that they could get a FREE copy of my comics there. I am so happy right now that I feel I'm in cloud 9.

Salamat po boss KC.

Noong nag meeting po kami ng Forex. Napansin ko na meron silang hawak hawak na comics nyo na comicspotting. Hindi ko na lang po tinanong sila regarding sa inyo. Pero sana po ay ma publish din yung mga comics na gawa nyo.
