Maybe it was the size of the venue, or the tiny ingress/egress points, or the fact that so many people were standing still as the waited in line to meet Manix Abrera, but this year’s Komikon felt positively packed. I’ll save my impressions and reviews for future articles, but for now, here are a few photos from the event:
This line of people from the airconditioning units to the left all the way past the right edge of the photograph is but a small sampling of Manix Abrera’s (Kikomachine Komix) loyal fanbase.
A panel with some of the Sulyap contributors.
It’s always easy to spot Gio Paredes‘ (Kalayaan) table.
Quite a few people were too excited to wait until they got home before reading their purchases.
Has it really been ten years since the first Beerkada compilation? Wow, I feel old.
The Electromagnetic Tentacle gang was there, with new shirt designs!
The Kapitan, in the house! I wanted to steal that little papercraft figure.
Maya, Dado, and Hannah from ArtSpice! a very talented group of young artists who made the long trip to the Metro for Komikon. Dado and Hannah are collaborating with me on a few projects, and I hope my writing does their art justice.
When I came back around after taking this shot, Work in Progress #1 was sold out. Good for them! (Not so good for me.)
