That’s sort of the dream isn’t it?

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.
