Summer Komikon 2011

Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On April - 13 - 2011

It’s summer time, and you know what that means – another Summer Komikon, where the Philippine comics/komiks scene gathers to sell their wares and celebrate the medium we love. This year, the even will be held at the Bayanihan Center in Pasig (near Pioneer supermarket, if you know that area) and not at the Bahay ng Alumni – you can get a map here. The event starts at 10am on April 16 and is a one day affair, so clear your calendars – many of the komiks sold at these cons have limited print runs and are only available at these cons, so snap them up!

Here’s some additional info from Krisis Komix:

This year’s theme is “Bayanihan: Komiks Moving Onwards” and the main highlights of the event include:

* the opening of the nominations for the 3rd Komikon Awards for Komikon 2011;

* exhibit and guest spotlight on women cartoonists;

* release of the first Summer Komikon Tabloid;

* screening of Animahenasyon 2007 and Animahenasyon 2008 winning entries;

* book launches of new comics titles (28 titles from the Indie Komiks Tiange);

* various comics-themed competitions
