Komikon 2013 at the Bayanihan Center

Wazzup Pilipinas!

All comic book lovers and collectors will surely love to attend the Komikon 2013 event happening on April 13, 2013 at the Bayanihan Center in Pasig.

This will be a phenomenal event that will be attended by the young and the young at heart (isip-bata), which includes me. I never really outgrown my love for comic books and even have a collection of Batman titles among other collectible characters.

It does not only bring out the jubilant child in me but also keeps me creative and adventurous in every occasion.

KOMIKON or Philippine Komiks Convention aims to bring together different comic book artists/groups and publishers in a venue where they could present their talents, works and services to the public and, most importantly, to aspiring comic artists. This yearly convention would like to bring in different art groups and different generations of artists for a free exchange of ideas, break down stereotypes, and broaden the scope of comics – from international to local, sequential to strips, professional to amateur, and published to independent comics. We would also like to bring to people’s awareness the current state of the Philippine comics industry.

Most importantly, the event focuses on Filipino comics, made by Filipino comic creators, whether published independently, or through a publisher, using various styles of drawing encompassing numerous genres. Though relatively young compared to the more established comics conventions abroad, Komikon is still in its early learning stages and through the support of all the participants, exhibitors and sponsors, Komikon will definitely grow a lot bigger.

Sulyap is a collection of short Filipino independent komiks works, edited by Jon Zamar and published by Komikon Inc.

KOMIKON Inc. is a non-profit cultural organization that aims to promote the awareness and reading of past & present komiks made by Filipino artists by organizing comics conventions such as Komikon (every last quarter of the year since 2005) and Summer Komikon (every summer since 2009).

Official Summer Komikon 2013 shirts will be available this Saturday!
