Kita-kits sa KOMIKON
Well... you'll kinda, sorta, somewhat see Trese and Makabo at the Komikon. They'll be sold on the same table but they won't be in the same comic book. (Well, at least not yet.) The pin-up above was illustrated by Ian Sta. Maria. Makabo the Tikbalang is one of the characters from the comic book SKYWORLD. Before we ever get to this magical,mystical, marvelous team-up, you'll have to read Mervin Ignacio and Ian Sta. Maria's SKYWORLD: APOCRYPHA.
After many years of writing and drawing storyboards for clients (who have a tendecy to revise everything you put on the page) Mervin and Ian finally finished this story which they can say is all theirs. (Well, a couple of people gave their inputs and asked for changes as well. HAHAHA)
Aside from SKYWORLD, TRESE 7: EMBRACE OF THE UNWANTED will also be available at the Komikon.
So, for those of you who haven't picked up the complete set of TRESE, you can get all seven current issues at our table.
By the way, we will be sharing the table with Reno Maniquis where he will have several comic books for sale, including MASKARADO: VISIONS, the portfolio/comic celebrating 15 years of Maskarado.
Also available will be KADILIMAN: IN THEIR SILENT SHADOW CARVINAL, written by David Hontiveros with art by Edgar Tadeo.
The story puts the spotlight on Doktor Kadiliman, infamous villain back during the 1940s. We'll also get to see the original Justice Corps in action during World War II.
Dave wrote this story a long time ago and Edgar actually finished the art for this story last year, but we finally, finally get to release it this year. We hope you'll like it.
And I just read in Carl's blog that David's PENUMBRA horror novellas will also be available at the Komikon.
See you there this Saturday!
