Attended Renaissance last Sunday at Megamall, which is like Manila’s own Comic Con. Sharkboy and I literally geeked out at all these Comic Book artists in one place, mingling and being so nice to all their fans.
Love your own! These Pinoy comic book artists are unsung heroes. We should pay tribute to them more. Do you know that a LOT of our artists have worked for Disney, Pixar, Marvel and DC? We need more publicity for these guys. Let’s give equal exposure to them for being so great and whooping some serious ass in the international comic book/cartoon scene.
Anyway, here’s our Geek Out Sunday, in pictures.
(and on a sidenote: I LOVE MY 35 MM LENS. IT IS SO GREAT FOR INDOOR SHOTS.)
Started the day with a delicious Almon Marina lunch.
Then a quick visit to Toy Kingdom
Sharkboy photobombing The Hulk.
Off to Renaissance! Here’s the original Alaska boy art. 😀
First “victim” of our geekery: Budjette Tan of Trese fame!
We had him sign ALL of our Trese copies. WOOT.
Plus this: The Last Datu
(He has no idea he’ll be ripped in half in Siege#2!)
Some Kate Beckinsale for you guys. 😉
Here we go. Paolo Fabregas and LEINIL YU!!!
Jiggy Cruz was there too!
Leinil Yu + Gerry Alanguilan (who drew a chicken head on my Elmer copy!)
We topped our day with YUMMY sweet treats from Iceberg’s.
Aaaand THAT’S how geeks spend a perfect day. ❤
