Komikon 2010 is This Saturday

Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On November - 10 - 2010

In case any of you needed reminding, the 6th annual Philippine komiks convention, or KOMIKON, will be taking place this Saturday, November 13, from 10 in the morning to 7 in the evening. Keep in mind that this year’s event is a one day only affair, and will be held at Starmall Trade Hall, 2nd Level, Starmall EDSA (not at SM Megamall as in previous years, or at UP–that’s the Summer Komikon). The Komikon website has directions to Starmall (note that you can get to Starmall from Shangrila EDSA by passing through the MRT station), as well as the day’s schedule of events, and a floorplan.

Of course, the main attraction of komikon are the komiks that will be available at the event, many of which are only sold during conventions. Macoy Tang and Gerry Alanguilan both have posts which list new komiks that will be sold at the convention, and you cal also view previews of some of the komiks (old and new) at Flipgeeks.

    Hullo Mr. Paulo!

    Yes, I’ll be attending the KOMIKON this coming Saturday. Hope to see you there Paulo. I would just like to ask if there will be an available copy of the comic book “Kataastasan”. I’m quite intrigued by the comic books since I read the review of my good frined Tine of One More Page.

    Thank you! ;)

      Hi jzhunagev!

      Thanks for the interest :) Unfortunately, Kataastaasan isn’t out yet – what I did was burn a few copies onto a CD and distribute them at the last Filipino Book Bloggers meet up. I won’t be at the meet up this Saturday, but if you’re at the one after that (and if Katasstaasan hasn’t been released by Espresso yet) maybe I could burn you a copy too.

      Too bad it’s a large file, otherwise I’d email you a copy :)
