Collecticon 2011 was held last weekend at the Robinson's Midtown Mall and some buddies and I decided to trek to Ermita, Manila to check it out during the first day last Saturday. Day 1 wasn't as packed with people as I expected. The selling area was crowded, but still navigable. There were booths selling comics for as low as 10 pesos and graphic novels at 50% off. Obviously most of the stuff being sold there were toys. There were lot of boxed and loose Marvel and DC toys, as well as Gundams and other Japanese anime toys.I also saw a booth that sold costumes and wigs; a dog tag booth and one that sold collectibles like Coca-Cola memorabilia.

Fans of local indie comic Trese rejoice! I was browsing Azrael's blog and I came across news about Book 4's launch and signing at NBS Best Seller at Robinson's Galleria. Creators Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldissimo will be there to sign copies at 5p.m.
It's the Avengers on the cover of Entertainment Weekly! This week's issue, which hit stands yesterday, features the Scarlet Johansson, Robert Downey, Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans dressed in their respective character's garb. EW.com also has a gallery of exclusive photos from the set of the movie, whose release date is May 4, 2012.
