Clockwise: Chuck Palahniuk’s Legacy: An Off-Color Novella For You To Color (2017), Empress Book One HC (2017) [Stuart Immonen and Mark Millar], Survivors Club (2016) [Lauren Beukes], Melag (2016) [Bong Redila], Palahniuk’s Pygmy (2009), and Choke (2001).

We need more days!

This is a statement that the working class will agree with: We need more days in February!  Taking into account a possible leap year, those extra two or three days could mean the difference between a penalty or making a payment on-time.

Am I right!

Final Edits

Just sent in my final edits for Lindol #4 (with the award winning artist Randy Valiente) and my new book OBIsessions #1 (with Jann Galino).

If everything is in the can we should start printing by the middle of March and be ready of the April 13 launch during Summer Komikon 2019!

Kindly email me for issue reservations. Read more…

Komiket Awards 2019 (February 15, 2019)

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.

Anima-i Germaine wrote:

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.

Writing a Promo for Lindol #4 (February 6, 2019)

02/06/2019 Leave a comment

Harder than it looks

I’ve been staring at my laptop’s screen for a couple of hours now trying to hammer out a proper back cover promo to promote our latest issue of Lindol.  The promo will be featured on the back cover of another upcoming book called OBIsessions.

Both books are slated to be release during Summer Komikon 2019 (April 13, 2019 | 10:00 am to 8:00 pm).

Sample advertisement:

Between the cracks of a world wrought by intermittent earthquakes,

rises a far more immediate threat…

A human one.

The enigmatic group known as The Klimcha have captured and imprisoned Dash, Cam, and Grey.

Is this the end for our band of survivors?

Find out in Issue #4

Out in April 2019

 

This is The New World.

Welcome to…

Lindol

Verdict

So what do you guys think?  Would you give the book a shot after reading this promo?

Let me know 🙂

Share Your Story: What happened to your Lindol Comics Blank Cover Variant? (January 27, 2019)

Antiquity by Randy Valiente (From the collection of Mr. Olan Amago)

After the dust has settled

After back-to-back monster events[i] to start out Lindol Comics’ convention schedule for 2019, a thought occurred to me this afternoon while I was working on the script for Issue #5:

“What have people been doing with their Lindol Blank Cover Variants?”

How we got here

Published in September 2017, the print run of the first issue stood at a solid 500 copies with 100 designated as the limited edition blank cover variant[ii].  Now, between the creative team’s complimentary copies, advance orders, and convention sales–more than a few are currently circulating locally and abroad.

So, I am curious, if you own one of our blank cover variants…how did you make use of them?

Are they stored for safe keeping?  Did you have a commission done by Lindol co-creator Randy Valiente? Maybe another artist worked their magic on it?  Did you have it graded?[iii]

Clockwise: The creative team of Lindol Comics: Randy Valiente and me. | Thank you again Mervin.  Your work will serve as my remembrance of this event. (Art by Mervin Malonzo) | Photo opportunity with the Coching family and participating artists and writers. | Proud to be among the 15 exhibitors for this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Getting second place

With every intention of being the first one to set up shop, I arrived at the Ayala Museum shortly before the 7:00 am ingress period.  But to my surprise, the good people from Adarna House were already there and putting on the finishing touches to their table!  I guess you could say, they beat me to the punch!

Oh well, you can’t win them all.

On a more serious note, the Ayala Museum was such a great host and venue!  They gave all the exhibitors ample table space to display our products and their personnel: Topnotch.  Helpful and efficient are the best ways that I can describe the Pop-Up staff, museum security, and maintenance crew.  Great job guys!
