Mervin Malonzo’s self-portrait.

Belatedly linking to an interesting post from the Philippine Star last week: Xerox, staples, starving artists: An oral history of indie komiks .

The indie komiks scene is full of raw talent. An uncensored creativity fueled by pure passion for the art runs rampant. To know more about underground comics, we asked some comic artists themselves to talk about the industry, where the scene is today, why life as an artist can be difficult, and where you can get your hands on these precious zines.

The creators interviewed are: Noel Pascual, Josel Nicolas, Robert Magnuson, Jon Zamar, Mervin Malonzo, and Rob Cham.
