Komikon 2010

This year’s Summer Komikon de Avance has come and gone, leaving komiks lovers in financial ruin that they will fail to notice until they’ve finished reading the last of their haul. Here are a few pictures from the event, as well as links to others who captured the event on… well I can’t really say film anymore nowadays can I? Sadly, “captured the event on bytes” doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

First up, here are a few of my favorites from the Cover Recreation Contest:

A picture of me with the very talented macoy, creator of Ang Maskot and Taal Volcano monster vs. Evil Space Paru-Paro. He’s also set up a new forum for indie komiks creators and fans called Indie Komplex. I’ve already seen creators like Gerry Alanguilan (Elmer, Wasted), Hazel Manzano (Callwork), Josel Nicolas (Roleplay) and the Atomic Underground crew post on the forums:
