check out the 4 days festival on Philippine komiks. Its great to see this event now evolving, we really need more like this here in our country. We need to educate, let the people be aware, about art, komiks and the benefit of it. Recognize our artists and also make komiks live more and be active again in our industry. feel free to repost this and let’s wait for October 2009.
