Attention, Filipino comic book fans!

If you’ve got nothing better to do on Saturday, January 3, 2009 stop by Comic Odyssey in Robinsons Galleria between 2 PM – 4 PM and meet me and artist Elbert Or.

I’ll be giving away copies of Wonder Girl and Ninja Scroll, as well as Wonder Woman pins (courtesy of DC Comics).

Elbert will be previewing art from our upcoming Oni Press graphic novel Lola: A Ghost Story.

Comic Odyssey
Robinsons Galleria Branch
Ortigas, Quezon City

Hope to see you there! Until then, have a Merry Merry and a Happy Happy!



J. Torres is the writer of Family Dynamic, Legion of Super Heroes in the 31st Century, and Wonder Girl for DC Comics.

Other works include the Eisner Award nominated Alison Dare, the ALA listed Days Like This, the Harvey nominated Sidekicks and the Shuster Award winning Love as a Foreign Language and Teen Titans Go.

His upcoming projects include Lola: A Ghost Story and Dead Goombas for Oni Press as well as new Degrassi: The Next Generation webisodes for Epitome Pictures.


Here’s the first look at my next project for Oni Press, the graphic novel Lola: A Ghost Story. “Lola” is the Tagalog (Filipino) word for grandmother and this story is loosely based on some tall tales about my own maternal grandmother’s childhood, some other family “history,” as well as some folklore and mythology from the Philippines.

The artist of Lola is the multi-talented Elbert Or, whose blog can be found here. While you’re there, make sure to check out his webcomics, which can be accessed from the right hand sidebar. The effectively minimalist and iconic Love and Heartbreak is probably my favourite one, but Camy and Me is also very charming and fun.

Jay Anacleto (Marvels 2) doing the thumbs up

This is what happens if I failed to attend a comic book event, and I know that everyone will be there and I didn’t expected that it will turn like a mini comic convention ehhhee, congrats to all and nice to see that everyone is getting busy doing comics and fans being active in these events. Jay Anacleto was there as the main highlight of the event for the promotion of the sequel of Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross’s Marvels, and its Jay Anacleto’s turn to wear the crown as the artist for the Marvels 2. And the comics is already SOLD OUT…and I don’t have my own copy. Me and Mark decided to check out in Planet X comics, but failed…still copies are sold out.
