1st Komikon Indieket and Kwentillion Booth

Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On July - 9 - 2012

This Saturday, July 14, will be the 1st Komikon Grand Independent Komiks Market (or “Indieket”, as its close friends call it), a “mini-event” that is a boon for those who wish there were more than two opportunities (Summer and Oct/Nov Komikons) to buy indie komiks releases. It’s also partly a way for creators to “qualify” for slots in the always full October Komikon, so if you’d like to be sure that your favorite indie creators get guaranteed slots, now would be the time to buy, buy, BUY! There will also be talks by industry experts such as Gerry Alanguilan, Taga-ilog, and Prof. Emil Flores.

Members of the Kwentillion team will also be there, as Summit Media is a sponsor of the event – Budjette Tan and I, as well as a few issue #1 contributors, will be dropping  by the Summit Media booths next to the stage at different parts of the day. We also have some time on stage at 2:30PM, and we’re still figuring out if we’d like to do a raffle or some sort of talk, but that’d be the best time to catch most of us there at the event.

July is shaping up to be jam-packed with events. Don’t forget Alyson Noël’s signing on the 20th, and the 1st Kwentillion Young Adult Reader Carnival on the 21st!
