This is the final event I attended last Saturday, and lucky me to have a meet up with comic artist Ryan Orosco before going to Cubao Expo. I arrived too early for the event, and it was hot in the street of Cubao and I crawled down via taxi from my visit in Fullybooked Free comic book day.

But I decided to have a cold drinks and surf the internet in Gloria Jeans Coffee in Shopwise Araneta Center, were I waited for Ryan’s return from his meeting. I texted Budjette at 3:00pm if they are already there, and the replied that everyone is already in the event, then I decided to go late and get updates and do some chores for me work were I try to resolve some website problems for Glass House Graphics.

Me and Ryan walked around the Araneta Center up to the Cubao Expo, were the event called 9 in 1 Kolektib Intelidyens, ( Collective Intelligence), its an event by the Visual Print Enterprise, a comic and book publisher for 9 artists.

Met the brilliant minds behind the comics of Trese, Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, Kiko Machine, and many more. It was like a mini comic convention, because there are lots of comic fans went there just to meet the artists to get their book and comics signed by the artists, and also ask advice for their comic creators and works. Our local comic creators went there too as a fan of their fellow artists in the industry and it was fun to see them hanging out and while we take air outside the venue we had a great chat outside.

from my chat here are some great news from them.

I asked David Hontiveros about his superhero character novel online, and told him if he is willing to print the novel into comics, he said that he is willing for comics version of his novel, but its hard to manage and get artist nowadays and bring them in as a job for the title, as I told him about budget issues, and yes.. printing it is very expensive in this time, I asked what if there’s someone did a fan-comic version of the novel without your consent, do you consider it?, then he said that its okay, but it will be great if he will be informed about it first. Sounds good noh? but thats only my make idea and just asked him maybe he can make it a comic book version. To know more of his online novel, visit http://davidhontiveros.com/

Then i got a short talk with Budjette Tan and Carlo Vergara, I just reminded them again for the Toy Con and I’m super excited to have Carlo and Budjette as one of my guest for the ToyCon and I told them about the panel discussions hour with the comics creator, I really want Carlo to join the panel, and yes it will be a big promotion and also an awareness that Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah has a sequel in comics. Jonas Diego was there too, and I told him about my Toy Con and invited him to join the panels, heard from him that he is working a new comics series with our local artists, even that he is not sure if the comics will be available at that time, he said that he will try to release and show some comic teasers and samples.

Chompy and Lyndon Gregorio

Lyndon Gregorio, Lei Chompy Muncal and Syeri Baet was there too, my fellow Artist’s Den group, I talked to them about the latest news for the Komikon, and they said that the convention will be on the month of November and tentatively on the 22nd. They were planning to have a mini comic even before the convention and the venue still be in U.P. Bahay ng Alumni. and the big news from Syeri. She’s getting married with her long time BF comic artist Jon Zamar, congrats in advance. For Lyndon and Beerkada news, hmm heard that he will release new Beeerkada Plush dolls. and my bet is a PSYCHO COW doll! ahhahahaa! which will be launched in Toy Con 2008.

For the first time I met Kajo Baldisimo, artist for Trese comics. We discuss some matters about his addition in the talent roster of Glass House Graphics and heard from Kajo that they are making a new issue of Trese, which I read it too in the Alamat ML that there’s a teaser, which I failed to look at it at the event.

Btw, Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah part 2 comics was exhibited at the event, but you can check more of the preview pages in Carlo Vergara’s blog at http://carverhouse.blogspot.com/

Got a great talk too with Manix Abrera, and extended my invite for the Toy Con 2008 and can’t believe that he is so excited when I asked him to join with us, he said that he will be releasing a secret merchandise of Kiko Machine or maybe one of his comic works, Reisa also told me to keep it secret haahaa, congrats to Reisa too for her college graduation, now I see a marketer in the works.

met and talked to great people like Freely Abrigo and Johnny Balbona, and I’m a little bit jealous for he takes home a Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah giant poster hehehe, go Johnny! thanks for that yucky news about the hair band condom news in China.

the event is a great success. hope there will be another exhibit and also meet and greet with our local artists. arghhh.. im tired already and this will be my last post for the week. see you next weekend!
