Medical Report

I’ll be honest.  I am not in the best of shape today.  I’ve got the flu and didn’t think I’d even get a chance to post this entry tonight as I went to bed early.  Here’s a quick summary: No cough, running nose, or joint pain (I am grateful) but my throat is so sore that I have difficulty swallowing.

Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow morning.

Komiket 2019 (February 17, 2019)

Popped up for Day 2 of Komiket 2019 in order to attend the Komiket Awards 2019.  Lindol Comics co-creator and artist Randy Valiente was one of five finalists one of the Best Illustrator category (Out of a field of 53-57 entries I believe).

I also had a chance to catch up with some friends as well as take home some fine art and comic books. Read more…

Lindol Comics #3 (As it is seen in Komiket’s Facebook post)

Got great news today that Lindol Comics has been considered for the Komiket Awards 2019 that will be taking place during Komiket 2019 (February 16 and 17, 2019 | The Elements at Centris along Quezon Avenue).

I am also very grateful for the kind reviews that Anima-i Germaine and EK Gonzalez gave Lindol.

Lindol #3 by Tedi Gustilo Villasor and Randy Valiente.

The three wanderers find their way to a stronghold created at former EDSA-Ortigas, through various perils.  It has more action and movement than the bridging Issue 2, and reveals one of their enemies.  Lots of 80s references are dropped, for better or worse.  The art is stable and excellent as expected.

Lindol: Tedi Gustilo Villasor and Randy Valiente

Most people have probably heard of The Big One–the rumoured mother of all earthquakes that is said to hit the Philippines anytime soon.  But no one has thought of what to do when it hits or what might happen after.  But the Lindol creators bring these thoughts alive in their komiks.

In Lindol, the story revolves around a few survivors–most being strangers to one another.  The first chapter focuses on establishing its characters and events, and serves as a good hook for the chapters to come.

EK Gonzales (@komikninja) has reviewed past issues of Lindol Comics via her Instagram account.

One distinct characteristic of Lindol is its art style–rough and sketchy–which is perfect for its setting, as well as the afterword from the creators.

Lindol may not look like much at first, but its terrifying idea of the big one will keep you wondering what will happen next, so it’s definitely worth a read.

Best Komiks Category 2018

Last February, the Lindol creative team was honoured to have Issue 1 among the six finalist in the Komiket Awards 2018Best Komiks‘ category.  In fact, the creative team was so proud with the nomination that we wanted to find a way wherein we could cite it in future Lindol publications.  Komiket was nice enough to grant us permission to do so and even supplied us with the Nominee 2018 logo that appears on Issues 2 and 3.

Fringe 2019 x Komiket Makati (February 10, 2019)

Yakult Ice Tea!  I plan to get another one the next time I visit Century Mall.

Found out about the one-day Fringe 2019 x Komiket Makati event just last night and decided to drop by and support my fellow indie comic book creators today.

The event was held in high end food mall called Hole in the Wall.  Located in the 4th floor of Century Mall in Makati City, I had been to this particular establishment once or twice since it opened.  The pop-up was set to officially open at 11 am and since I was a bit early, I decided to take a seat try one of the lessees’ Yakult Iced Tea–a combination that I would have never considered–but turned out to be pretty good.

However, the one drawback of my dining experience was that my table had a number of tiny and medium sized cockroaches scampering from under the woodwork.  It was quite annoying, but I am sure if management ever does get around to fumigating the establishment, it would adequately address the issue.
