SUMMER KOMIKON 2012

Now for something that I've missed for a long time: SUMMER KOMIKON!

Summer Komikon 2012 was AWESOME! I was absent from it for almost a couple of years and that was the first time I went to the new venue. Suffice to say, it's a lot more comfortable there with full centralized air-conditioning and lotsa space for everyone. 

I had the chance to station myself at Jonas Diego's booth where I had some of my kits and minis displayed. Later through the day, I managed to get a lot of komiks/comics that I'm not quite done reading them all yet as of now. 


The 'Kon had a lot of surprises. First up was when local film and TV actor appeared onstage to pomote their new comic and digital movie called 'Tiiktik: The Aswang Chronicles'. 

Yours truly, peddling funny book pr0n

Surprise #2 was a short film tribute to komiks legend Tony De Zuñiga who passed away not too long ago.One of sis numerable works include Jonah Hex which was turned to a film quite recently.



But the biggest surprise was the appearance of acclaimed writer MARK MILLAR who dropped by for a meet and greet that afternoon! It was known that Millar was supposed to be at his own signing event the day after (for his new book SUPERCROOKS) but it was a welcomed surprise nonetheless. He was accompanied by the whole Supercrooks team Leinil Yu (penciller), Gerry Alanguilan (inker) and Sunny Gho (colorist).

THE CROWD!

Some were selling just prints, which were equally rad.

What's plamo and minis doing in a Komikon???

BOLD!

For some reason, I am sad...

For me, its the BEST KOMIKON I had as of recent memory. Its the first time an international comics writer dropped by an I'm really hoping that others would follow suit.
