Komikon Loot

This year's Komikon was held on October 27, 2012 at the Bayanihan Center. We got a booth to promote our newest card game, Flirt, which is coming out in bookstores in November. We also sold LikeMan comics, which was a strip series that our Lead Developer (yes, programmer) created and drew (Komikasi peeps are hybrids!).

The sad thing is, my friend's iPhone, and apparently a lot of other things from other people, got stolen. Even a sketchbook! Now, it may not be very important to some other people, but a sketchbook, as some creators would agree with me, is a precious thing. This is where we pour out our hearts and minds. And I grieve for my friend and his loss, because not only did he lose a phone. He also lost the enjoyment I wanted him to feel coming to Komikon.

We all have to be extra careful with our belongings next time. I don't fault the organizers. But I wish the thief would leave Komikon alone. This is a place we look forward to go to. I want it kept a good place.

Anyway, I wasn't able to go around much. But I was able to get myself 3 comic books: Sean, Kanto Inc. 4, and Trese 5.

Kanto was alright. I particularly liked the art.

I liked Sean. I've always wanted to make comics like these. Light love stories (although I know Sean gets darker). Pacing and storytelling are great to me. Art is also great. Maybe, more backgrounds in the future! But definitely see me getting hooked to this.

I loved Trese. I loved the references. I loved the Kambal's banter. Although, they were funnier in the previous books. I loved how Trese is becoming more "female". I mean, she doesn't need to be sappy. But I think it's a good idea to use her being female. I mean, Trese's cool. It's only proper to give her some admirers. Especially rich kid tikbalangs who are full of themselves and like to show off. Hmm, I think it would be fun to see Trese flustered. Just a little.
