GALO ADOR, R.I.P.

Read the news Here

I dont know him personally, but his works in the comics Dark Pages is one of my fave! I remember that when the info from Alamat ML came about this horror comics titled Dark Pages will be released, I went down to Comic Quest and bought one for myself. It was the best come back of horror comics to me and I treasure it. It’s like me reading a local Heavy Metal magazine but the art will blow you away and will teleport you into  a different realm.

If ever I can go back to my home in Pasig City, I’ll grab my comic and re-read it again for a big tribute to Galo Ador who founded the independent comic Dark Pages

Animating Philippine Literature

got this from the Alamat ML, thanks to Budj for the link


http://homepage.mac.com/jdalisay/blog/MyBlog.html

(an excerpt)

A work titled Ang Kagilagilalas na Pakikipagsapalaran ni Zsazsa Zaturnnah (The Amazing Adventures of Zsazsa
Zaturnnah) deserves special mention, because of its runaway success in several versions—first, as a comic
book by the artist Carlo Vergara in 2002, then a stage musical in 2006, and finally as a movie in 2006.
Before the musical even opened, all 16 shows had been sold out—an unprecedented feat in Philippine theater.
All three versions—comic book, musical, and movie—won critical acclaim. The lesson here? Update and adapt
material for new times, themes, and audiences.

Zsazsa Zaturnnah is also unusual in that it was one of the relatively few cases where a work that had
succeeded in print moved on to the stage and then to  the movies. Very few Filipino stories, novels, or
plays ever make it to the movies, with the occasional exception of popular novels serialized in the komiks
magazines. An incipient independent film industry has emerged, with many young talents drawn from art,
literature, and music, but its market, as yet, remains severely limited.

We went to the opening of a new comic store in the middle of the busy area of Cubao last month, and we are happy and yes, super happy to know that it is really a shop for comics! Video below is an interview and feature of the Sputnik Comics Shop, we didn’t know why it is named after that satellite, but for us it is more faster than a speeding rocketship.

Ramon De Veyra, store owner of Sputnik. Just told me that they are open for selling indie comics titles, so if you have your own comics and wants to get more readership, drop them a note at http://sputnikcomics.multiply.com/

Store opens at 4pm to 8pm, Tuesday to Sunday
