COMICXHUB Year One!


Time does fly by so fast and a year a ago I was talking to Lawerence about his online business which is really interesting and a first in the country. COMICXHUB is a venture that made comics collecting easier with a few simple clicks. And fast forward to 12 months, it is now celebrating its first year! 

And with the anniversary held at the Collective last September 29 also comes another milestone with the opening of CASTLE GEEK store there which serves as another physical store aside from their office store in Shaw boulevard. 


The night was filled with comics (local and international), action figure collections, sketches from comic artists and even fun games and raffle of prizes. They also gave recognized the people and organizations that helped them a lot for its first year. And we are happy to be one of them! To Comicxhub, thank you very much for providing a one of kind service plus your support for the Filipino komiks industry, we wish more years of success (and more branches of castle geek) to come!

BLTX Today Until Tomorrow!


Better Living Through Xeroxography or BLTX is a small-press expo now on its second incarnation, the first one a success by indie standards: 30 small press publishers and 200 buyers on a rainy December day in 2010.

The goal of BLTX is simple. Bring together independent self-publishers from Metro Manila (hopefully from elsewhere, too), in a one-night event that will allow them to sell their wares: books, yes, but also zines and other printed materials like shirts, postcards, posters, and this year, CDs from musicians more indie than indie. It’s about selling, but also about meeting like-minded individuals who believe in literature and creative work that might not ever get into the mainstream of commercial bookstores and galleries, but for one night is the star of the show.

You can also just imagine BLTX to be the coolest meet-and-greet between writers and readers, one that involves beer, some music, and plenty of creativity you rarely see. 

This year though BLTX will also be space for productive discussions on the making | marketing | selling of the self-published book, where practical aspects of actual independent book production will be shared by those who have survived it with sanity intact. BLTX Talks will happen the day after the BLTX small-press expo, a full six hours of four different panels that will answer central questions about PRINT PUBLISHING, ONLINE / WEB PUBLISHING, RETAIL & DISTRIBUTION, and COMMUNITY. All necessarily in light of the industry of independent self-publishing, and all against the traditional forms of cultural production as we know it in these shores.

This year BLTX will happen at Ilyong's, Kalantiaw, Project Four, Cubao from 8:00pm until Tomorrow at 8:00pm.

Zsazsa Zaturnnah is Back This 2012!


Everybody's favorite Pinoy superheroine is back at book stores after some years of anticipation from fans and the industry alike. Zsazsa Zaturnnah sa Kalakhang Maynila (Part 1 of 3) became available just this January 25 ( and earlier in some bookstores, which fans shared). And has been well received by its readers. It was expected to debut this last November Komikon but was just pushed back a little further but people never got tired of waiting. In this new saga of Ada and her alter ego Zaturnah, she and Dodong now living in the busy city, a break away from the rural life they had after fighting giant frogs, zombies and alien amazonas.  In this chapter in their lives, they try to adjust to urban living and getting along with people around them.
And indeed from the cover it already gets you attention which I think is inspired with classic comic layouts and poses and given the 'touch' of terms making it an eye-catcher. Then for its contents, it still retains its very dramatic yet compelling art and story which readers admire. And it still contains gay lingo (beki language) that seems like reading a bilingual book yet one can still get what it means and its humor essence. 

With this first part making us excited forAda/Zaturnnah's return but also leaves a short cliffhanger to be excited for the second part. It has been so far fun with new characters also unique and interesting. A great job by Carlo Vergara for sharing another Zaturnnah story which is also celebrating almost a decade and made its as far as CCP to Silver screens. 

We are now waiting for any announcement of when the second book will be available.
Congratulations again to Carlo Vergara on this book launch and the the 10th anniversary of Zsazsa Zaturnnah!
