EVENTS: Harvey Tolibao's DARE TO DRAW

I love Harvey Tolibao. He's fun, wacky, and an over-all nice guy. And he draws really well, too. The pic above is a sketch  he did in my notebook at the 2011 Toycon last July. He ran out paper so I handed him my notebook for him to sketch on. Incidentally, this is my first sketch by a Marvel Comics artist. XD

Tomorrow, he takes on the public with "DARE To DRAW" at Vinyl+Splash at Fully Booked BHS. Something Harvey Tolibao fans shouldn't miss!

EVENTS: Artists Galore!

Yesterday was a very busy day for most comic book fans in the metro with two signings and one talk by local, but internationally known, comic book artists.

New comic book store Comicxhub hosted a signing for comic book artists Mico Suayan and Gerry Alanguilan. Photos of the event can be found on their Facebook page. Over at Robinson's Galleria, Comic Odyssey hosted a premiere signing for comic book artist Stephen Segovia for his new  Marvel Comics series: Thor, The Deviant's Saga.

Later in the day, Secret Fresh hosted a talk with industry veteran Tony De Zuniga.

With all that activity, you'd think I would have been dead tired from event hopping. But I wasn't. I never made it to any of the above *facepalms*. 

FINDS: Wonder Woman #10 and Catwoman #70

 I went to the mall to meet up with some buds to get some stuff and hang out, but a trip to two comic book stores found me spending some dough. I got me these two yesterday: Catwoman 70 and Wonder Woman 10. Both books are part of the Amazon's Attack mini-series which I'm trying to complete.These were bargain finds: Catwoman for Php 30.00 and Wonder Woman for Php 50.00.

Getting these brings me much closer to finally completing the series. All I need now are 2(?) more Catwoman titles and Amazon's Attack #2.
