i got to sit at the komikon booth (thanks to jon zamar, syeri baet and the rest of the komikon peeps!). that's gio paredes at the right and lico reloj at upper left--his fifty peso ninja was the very first indie i bought at the first komikon back in '05. in between is markus of planetmarkus.com, who was kind enough to mind our tables for us while we walked around and stuff. being a comics blogger, he was almost as knowledgeable about our stuff as we were!
it was a pleasure to see entire families trooping to the con. feedback from children regarding school run 2's brutal zombie attack scene ranged from "it was cool!" to "meh, i read 4chan so nothing new" to "i got scared".
the rj ledesma was there. he bought a couple of my comics and twittered about them. ZOMG! 0_0
salamat boss RJ!

this guy really impressed me with his getup.
he had on a ton of cool military gear.
see what happens when you skip comic conventions, pol medina?! you miss this.
komikon's indie anthology comes out in november, no joke.
you know what they say about guys with big wings?
this guy would go on to win the male cosplay competition.
michael jackson-dancing spiderman was back again. dunno where he got that hat.
in soviet russia, indie comics buy you. or something.
lord vader enjoyed reading ang maskot...
...until i told him he had to pay for it.
sunday was a slow day for comics, as everyone was there for the cosplay. the good thing about it was i got in some doodle time. and so...
MCC 2010 DUMB COSPLAY IDEAS:
