Komikon 2009: El Indio Book Launch

Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On October - 19 - 2009

Here are a few videos I took of the El Indio book launch at yesterday’s Komikon (with apologies for the shaky-cam… alas, I am not the steadiest of hands). The portion I caught on video consists of Karen Lucero of the Vibal Foundation interviewing Gerry Alanguilan (who doesn’t know Sir Gerry?), the driving force behind the project and the komiks/comics writer-artist extraordinaire who helped clean/restore the artwork of the great Filipino comics artist Francisco V. Coching for this compilation. This was followed by a kick-ass, fully-voiced teaser-reading of one of the chapters from the book–hopefully someone else can post that segment. (EDIT: Here it is!)

This is the first video clip I’ve taken for Rocket Kapre, but there will be more in the future whenever the opportunity presents itself, so please feel free to subscribe to our new youtube channel.
