Descending: My first speaking engagement for 2019. | Thank you FEU for this Certificate of Appreciation. | I actually signed over 100 pieces of this “Alternative Class 2019” cards. | The Lindol Comics table is now open for business!

February 8, 2019.

After braving through some heavy traffic and humid weather in the Manila/Quiapo Church area, the Lindol Comics team arrived at Far Eastern University (FEU) with more than enough time to set up our tables and get settled for our scheduled talks.

Retitled, “Usapang Komiks: Si Kenkoy, ang DI-13, at ang pagsulat ng sarili mong komiks[i],” Damy “Ian” Velasquez III, got the alternative learning class going with his talk entitled,“Si Kenkoy, DI-13 at ang “Golden Age ng Komiks.”  Ian, a former professor at FEU and the grandson of Komiks pioneers Damy and Tony Velasquez, gave an informative view of a number of landmark Filipino Komiks and their creators.

Velasquez also gave some insight on his debut indie comic book entitled, The New DI-13 (with legend Rico Rival on art).  He explained that he was inspired in part to write The New DI-13 as a means of honouring and continuing his family’s rich history in the Philippine Komiks landscape. Read more…

With writer Zack Kaplan.

For (Season 1 | Episode 5) of The Tedi31 Podcast with Dr. Tedi Villasor, I spent some time with Top Cow/Image and Aftershock Comics writer —Zack Kaplan—during Day 2 of the New York Comic Con 2018 in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Since February 2017, Zack has crunched out one hot book after another with Eclipse, Port of Earth, and The Lost City Explorers.  All three properties have since been optioned for television–every writer’s dream.

In the pod, I asked Zack about his writing process, how he gets his stories down to the industry standard 20-page limit, and much more.

Audio 001 – Toy Review: Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers [Series 1]

Last July 17, 2017, the family and I caught a late afternoon showing of Cars 3[i] before proceeding to a nearby department store in order to check out some of their Disney Pixar Cars 3 merchandise on display.

Strategically displayed by the escalator, there was a host of Cars 3 eye candy.  But the one that caught my eye was the Series 1 Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers.  These blind bag items retailed for about P149.50 so I decided to pick up a couple of bags for this review.[ii]

Here is my YouTube channel video review:[iii] Read more…
