Mars Ravelo’s Flash Bomba tv series teaser trailer

Good to see that Pinoy Komiks characters are now being introduced to the modern youth in a form of tv series. I just love what ABS CBN is doing for our old komiks characters.

Ang Panday – movie for 2009

GMA FILMS AND IMUS PRODUCTIONS
Starring Ramon ‘Bong’ Revilla Jr.
Direction: Mac Alejandre and Rico Gutierrez

My friend Jori saw the teaser trailer in the cinema, and I just can’t believe myself that they will be producing a remake of Ang Panday, then YouTube answered all my questions.

Above is the teaser trailer of a new revamp (or re-issue or modern take) for the classic comics and movie “Ang Panday” which FPJ originally fill its boots as the first Panday ( blacksmith). But after the death of the action king FPJ, another actor inherits the mighty sword and that is Bong Revilla Jr. I remember that I watched the last (and good one) movie of the Panday movie series, starring Bong for the movie “Dugo ng Panday”, I just forgot his characters back then.. But now, here in the 2009 remake, looks like Bong will be playing the main Panday / character of Flavio.

The teaser trailer looks good, kinda Dragon ball Z-ish ahhaha. Hope they can bring a kick ass villain like Lizardo, the aliens, zombies, and many more. and ohhh. I’m expect a good CGI effect here, hope more great than Resiklo and Exodus.

Im a big Panday fan, so I will be waiting for its development.

if you like to see the 1st classic movie, just view it below.

coverage : Mico Suayan autograph signing and Werewolf by Night #1 comic book launching at Comic Odyssey

Written by Azrael Coladilla on 5:06 AM Sunday, January 11, 2009

I went to the comic book launching of “Dead of Night featuring Werewolf by Night #1” and it is also the autograph signing of Mico Suayan, who is our penciler for that comics, published under Marvel Comics, and written by Duane Swierczynski. I just read some comic reviews last wednesday here on the net, and they say that the art of Mico here for Werewolf by Night is a little bit tone down, and because many of you are familiar with his works in Moonknight, you might get an idea here for looking a new style that Mico wants to deliver, and I just confirmed it with him awhile ago that he is working on this new style, more on realistic and not too edgy like what he did for Moonknight.

It was a great day for comics once again, and marvelous conversation with the artist, and we were joined by Edgat Tadeo and it was followed by Jay Anacleto after his comic signing event in another venut later that evening. Thanks to Comic Odyssey for event and also allowing us to hang out in the shop ahhaha. grab the book and check it out.

Tony De Zuniga : Super Heroes 2 gallery exhibit Opening event coverage

Written by Azrael Coladilla on 10:42 AM Saturday, January 10, 2009


Shanna, queen of the Savage Land

I failed to attend the opening event of Tony De Zuniga’s Super Heroes 2 at the Crucible in Megamall. I’m glad that our friend Ernest Hernandez took some cool photo coverage and shared to us. Love to see new painting artworks done by Tony De Zuniga, and from here at home, by looking at it, my favorite piece is the Shanna painting with the big cat behind. There is also Vampirella for my 2nd favorite set and finally the Red Sonja with a giant iguana, I really like his drawing on female characters, and from the look of it, very classic and sexy.

It is all comics characters for this year, compare to last year, it was a mix up of comic characters like Jonah Hex, Red Sonja and Batman, mixed with still life paintings.

The exhibit is til January 29, 2009. So visit the Crucible gallery, check it out..and you might have an interest in purchasing some of the greatest piece of comics artwork by artist extraordinaire Tony De Zuniga.
