To celebrate the Studio Salimbal launch, we’d like to talk about comics. Philippine comics, to be exact. Studio members — this includes Team Mythspace, Mervin Malonzo (Tabi Po), Noel Pascual (Crime Fighting Call Center Agents) and Elbert Or (Bakemono High, and editor of the forthcoming Abangan anthology) — will be joined by other local comic creators for an informal, free-wheeling discussion about the craft, business, and future of comics in the Philippines.
Nothing will be sold at the event, but there will be artists giving free sketches, and the event itself is free. So if you’re a creator who wants to talk shop, an aspiring creator who wants to learn the craft — or if you’re a komiks aficionado, or a comics fan interested in the local scene, or even someone who simply wants to learn about comics in general and the men and women behind them, please do come by. There’s never been a better time to talk about Philippine comics.
Confirmed Writers/Artists: Elbert Or, Noel Pascual, Mervin Malonzo, Tintin Pantoja, Paolo Chikiamco, Butch Mapa, Koi Carreon, Borg Sinaban, Paul Quiroga, Cristina Chua, Mico Dimagiba, Jules Gregorio.
