Elmer comics gift set
Gerry Alanguilan will be selling some copies of the ultra hard bound or shall we call it the super absolute edition of Elmer comics, its a limited edition hard bound set contains lots of pin ups and goodies from the grim chicken world of Elmer. All hand crafted and from cover till the back cover is a true work of art. if you see Gerry's finger print on it, just serve it as a super collected freebie.
Gerry will be releasing a 6 page self contain stories from the WASTED comics series, and as Gerry said the story take place after issue 3. Oh my lord..I'm going to read Jenny again in the pages ahhahaha. well I hope not. But Eric is having a bad ass treatment and you won't like him when he is angry, much more better than Star Trek remakes and Terminator Salvation. Grab this book - Komikero Comics # 1, and visit Jonas Diego’s Robo Monkey Pixel Fighters table.

Love is in the Bag Volume 3 by Ace Vitangcol
The 3rd book will have its debut at the event, and thanks to Ace and his team for continuing the ongoing saga of Love is in the Bag, and I just can't believe that the book is already on its 3rd series, (too bad that I have read book 1 only, hoping to grab both). I'm still puzzled over the magical thing that surrounds to the leading character, but if you love anime, manga and pinoy story telling style, then grab this because high school and college days will remind you how fun it is to be a student again (in reading this comic). visit Ace's site for other details of this comics.
