Last week, November 14, I went to Komikon right after my talk in DLSU. I left DLSU around 5pm, battled the epicness of MRT around 6pm and arrived safely in Shaw Blvd. around 6:30pm. I was worried actually that I might not able to make it to komikon, I decided to walk and run instead. While walking along Shaw Blvd. I saw 2 guys going home with big eco bags of Komikon I didn’t think twice to ask them if the event’s still open… so I asked them they said it was already done because the event was only until 7… and my heart was crushed into pieces because I really really want to have 1st dibs on Manix Abrera’s new book, NEWS HARDCORE: HUKBONG SANDATAHAN NG KAHAGGARDAN.
I rushed myself to Bayanihan Center hoping that Komikon’s still open and YES it was open even if it’s already past 7pm. I rushed myself to buy the book and have it signed by Manix… but god didn’t permit it. I was THIS close to Manix, but oh well. I still have his new book hehe and his latest Kiko Machine book.
I also got to meet the guy behind Libreng Komiks, Toto Magdima. I bought some of his works without even thinking twice because all of his works are “benta” to me hahaha.
Aside from them, I saw my talented friends Raine and Borg 🙂
I’m a happy hauler! Too bad I miss some of the artists because I was “fashionably late” but oh well, there’s still next time, hehe.
