As a way to join in on the collective efforts of the comic book community, I have donated this original inked Superior page (Issue #4 | Page #15) and left it with the kind people of Druid’s Keep/DK Collectibles, Inc. over at their Fort branch.
Art by Leinil Francis Yu and inked by Gerry Alanguilan, Superior (2010) holds the Guinness Book of World Records for being the fastest comic ever produced as well as having the most number of creators working on a single comic.
Sir Gerry signed the piece at the Komikero Komiks Museum in San Pablo City on August 13, 2016, while Leinil added his signature during Free Comic Book Day 2017 at Filbar’s Megamall.
For many, Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) serves as an annual opportunity to get new readers (as well as old ones) into the hobby by offering a wide selection of books that they would not normally pick up. But in recent years, the status quo of FCBD in the Philippines has evolved beyond its original purpose and into an event wherein the local comic distributors and artists give back to comic book community.
For me, the highlight of FCBD 2017 was being able to attend Leinil Yu’s signing over at Filbar’s Megamall.[i] Without going into great detail, Leinil was very gracious and accommodating. Thank you again Leinil!
