As part of Far Eastern University’s (FEU) 91st Foundation Anniversary, Lindol Comics’ co-creator Tedi Gustilo Villasor will join The New DI-13 writer Mr. Damy “Ian” Velasquez III for an alternative learning class entitled, “Komiks sa Piyu: Mga talks tungkol sa History at Self-Publishing ng Komiks” (February 8, 2019 | 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm).
Starting with Damy “Ian” Velasquez III’s talk, “Si Kenkoy, DI-13 at ang “Golden Age ng Komiks,” FEU Fine Arts students will be treated to an insightful look at a number of iconic Filipino Komiks and the rich history behind them. While Tedi Gustilo Villasor’s talk, “Self-Publishing: Making your mark in the comic book industry today” will provide participants with not only an inside look into independent publishing but also some tips on how indie creators could make their projects a reality.
Both talks will run for an hour each and end with a group Q&A.
