m3con 09 roundup


let me begin by saying this year's mangaholix convention was the coolest event i've ever been to. literally. it was freezing inside that tent.

and if i was chilled despite wearing a jacket, it was a miracle those cubizone booth girls somehow escaped hypothermia:

classy.

anyhoo, similarly skimpy was the interest shown by the mangaholix crowd towards my comics, judging by the dismal sales. which is too bad, 'cause i really enjoyed my huge-ass table:




that's the uber-talented jerome jacinto there on the left, from whom i scored a copy of the metro #2. also bought lambchild's komikon-award-winning life as viciously impossible, nailbiter by my new-favorite creative team of fidelis tan and mary ranises, and a boy ipis shirt from mike ignacio that i am considering using as my official comics event outfit.


most of these photos were taken during setup btw, which explains the emptiness.


danny acuna walked by our table, and when my seatmate jofel from kami-kami comics asked for an autograph, mr. acuna drew him a portrait instead! jofel then gave him a copy of their indie, and mr. acuna came back with three comic books in return! what a swell guy.



three-peat komikon comics creation champ mel casipit came by and we traded comics. this guy has four indies out, and none of them look like the others. that's versatility for ya.

now let's post some cosplay cross-marketing, shall we?

domino approves of operasyon's gratutious portrayal of gun violence. the rest of the marvel mutants, however, were less than enthusiastic...





more pics (actually good ones) @ carlo pagulayan's multiply.

Gio Paredes said...

Kahit nung umatend din ako last year. Matumal din kami. Iba kasi talaga ang market ng mga umaatend sa mangaholix eh.

Bakit nga pala pinunit ni colosus yung comics mo. At yung tabatchoy na wolverine tinusok naman. Salbahe sila ah. Gusto mo pa gulpi ko sila kay Kalayaan? :D

mcoy said...

haha di na bale gio, pang-ebay yun: "for sale: comics destroyed by the x-men!"
