FCBD on ComicX Hub

This is the cover for the anthology "Komiks All-Star" to be released by Comicx Hub on Free Comic Book Day on May 5On this cover are (from top left) Zsazsa Zaturnnah, Kalayaan, Trese, Callous Duck and Ambush on a summer attire. Art by Carlo Vergara (the creator of Zsazsa Zaturnnah). Colors by Amos Jan Villar. 

I might say that Carlo did an excellent job on this one. I've never seen KALAYAAN having this much sex appeal. Looking at this makes me wanna go out and hit the gym and exercise. Yes, I envy his body now more than ever. :-)

I hope that you guys could go to Comic X Hub this coming May 5 (Saturday) to get this absolutely FREE comics. And just in case you do not know the location. The address is "3rd Floor Bloomingdale Plaza Shaw Blvd. Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig City". And here is a map just to help more. Just click on the image to enlarge.

My character is being use without my permission!

I just came from the "World Book And Copyright day" from Quezon Memorial circle. And when I checked my messages. The first message that I get is that my CHARACTER is being use WITHOUT my permission on a t-shirt design competition which has the current theme of "Kalayaan".

The executive director of this non-profit group was kind enough to inform me of one entry that he said that it is too similar from one of my work. He asked if I have send this image using another name or given any other person a permission to use my character. And they are willing to disqualify this naughty (or misinformed person about copyright laws) person. 

Here is the image of the entry for this T-Shirt competition and you judge for your self it this is just a similar character from my own. 

In my humble opinion, and probably most of the people that could see this will agree with me that it is my character that had just been cut and paste, and had a minor editing. This image is based on the cover of Kalayaan  #1. And to see the comparison... here is the cover of the first issue of Kalayaan comics.

I asked the executive director of this T-Shirt competition to disqualify this person immediately and give me his name so that we (indie creators) could teach him a little bit about the Laws regarding copyrighted materials.
