Top 10 best comics shop in the Philippines this 2009

update: October 15, 2013
I'm going to update this blog post and come up a new list for 2013 for the Top 10 best comic shops here in the Philippines. So watch out for my updated blog post.




I just searched on the net and there's no listing or complete directory of local comic book shop or stores that sells comics here in the Philippines. I'm now on a writing project listing the top comic book shop that is known to everyone. I'm still searching for others, as I know that there are shops outside Manila and Luzon, and even I just encountered this comics shop in Baguio 10 years ago.

Villains, Heroes, Fans, Toys Galore published in China Business Philippines

I just stumbled this article in a bing.com search and its a lost article from last year, this was published in "China Business Philippines magazine" last year. Thanks to Chester G. Galias for the interview last Toy Con 2007. and according to the article, yes we are pretty beat up that year and I'm beat up too and so tired, and got time to do this interview.

I'm posting everything, just to save the article for future use

Villains, Heroes, Fans, Toys Galore
You wouldn’t expect the toys you used to throw around when you were five to cost thousands of pesos today. And because you were a brat and didn’t take care of them like you were told, you can do nothing now but watch as others make serious money selling classic Legos, Transformers, and G.I. Joe action figures.

The toy business in the Philippines is a growing enterprise as proven at this year’s Philippine Toys, Hobbies, and Collectibles Convention. From around 40 in 2003, there were some 90 booths at the recent ToyCon. Visitors (ages 3 to 70, according to organizer Azrael Coladilla) admired and purchased collector’s items on display.

Each ToyCon is anchored on a particular theme, usually an upcoming big-budget US summer flick. In 2007, it was Transformers; this year, The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins (2005). A steady stream of visitors had their pictures snapped next to a life-size replica of Batman and The Joker’s bust. Other popular photo-op dummies were Superman, Godzilla, and The Joker’s assistant, Harley Quinn. A very realistic replica of the head and shoulder armor of Iron Man was also on display.

Dressed to Kill
The convention floor space was filled with nearly a hundred vendors plying thousands of authentic movie memorabilia, comic books, robots, trading cards, CDs, hats, dolls, pins, action figures, and other hard-to-find items.

But costume play was still the main attraction. Costume play (“cosplay” among aficionados) is a contest where fans get to dress up and act like their favorite characters in animé, video games, comic books, and movies.

Darth Vader, Yoda, Spiderman, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Super Mario, Chun-Li, Naruto, and Lord Sauron from The Lord of the Rings novel were just some the over 100 creatures walking around the venue for photo-ops and, of course, for the best cosplayer award.

Not to be Outdone
The 7th ToyCon may have been overflowing with merchandise from animation and comic book powerhouses US and Japan, but the Philippines and China also had some strong representatives at the venue. (Even “Manny Pacquiao” was there!)

Some young Filipino comic book artists doing subcontracted work for foreign clients were on hand to give practical tips on how to succeed in the comic book industry. Also featured was a video of Filipino American artist Whilce Portacio, where the former Marvel Comics artist encouraged budding artists.

The classic works of homebound master illustrators Alfredo P. Alcala (Voltar and Alcala Komix Magazine) and Mars Ravelo (Darna, Dyesebel, and Captain Barbell) were also exhibited.

The Philippines was also represented by the “Foldabots,” a Transformers-inspired line of paper art robots crafted by architect Jose Miguel “Jomike” Tejido. Its first commercial run was in 2006 for K-Zone Magazine, from where kids could simply cut out Foldabots from its pages. The robots have Filipino names like Buhawi (whirlwind), Tutubi (dragonfly), and Kalasag (shield). Most of the Foldabots turn into either local vehicles or endemic species. New versions come out every month, some of them even designed to form one bigger robot.

As for China, TOSE China and mobiusgames launched GONG!, a multiplayer online soccer game that has totally different, wacky rules and unconventional playing fields.

TOSE China was established in Shanghai in November 1993. The firm is a fully-owned subsidiary of Japan’s TOSE Co. Ltd, said to be the world’s largest non-publishing game developer.

TOSE’s second studio in China was founded in Hangzhou in 2001. So far, TOSE China has produced 400 titles for the world’s top gaming companies and mobile content publishers. The company is also involved in creating games for consoles, handheld game devices, and 2G and 3G mobile phones.

Organizers are pretty upbeat that next year’s ToyCon will again be bigger. They could be right. After all, there’s an inner child in all of us, as proven by the multi-billion-dollar toy industry.

Pumpkin Scissors anime @ ANIMAX this August 2009


Three years have passed since the ceasefire stopped the war between the Royal Empire and the Republic of Frost. The Royal Empire continues to be in chaos with widespread hunger and plague, and is constantly ravaged by soldiers-turned-bandits.

With the aim of providing war relief and restoring peace and order to the war-torn Royal Empire, the Imperial Army State Section III platoon is formed with the codename ‘Pumpkin Scissors’.

Led by female protagonist 2nd Lieutenant Alice L. Malvin, the platoon ‘cuts’ like scissors through pumpkin-like layers of lies, power and money that the corrupted hide behind. The story takes an interesting turn as male protagonist and veteran tank-hunter Randel Oland joins Pumpkin Scissors…


Pumpkin Scissors is based on the manga series of the same title that was named in the list of top teenage graphic novels in 2007 by the Young Adult Library Association, a division of the American Library Association.


Pumpkin Scissors premieres on August 20, 2009
Every Mon-Fri at 7.30pm only at ANIMAX

A preview of IMAX theater at SM City North Edsa


Here is the perspective design and look of the entrance of the upcoming IMAX theater at SM City North Edsa. This is the 2nd IMAX theater in the Philippines and I'm happy that SM Cinema is expanding and bringing a great movie experience to all of us Filipinos. If you haven't been to an IMAX theater,try visiting the 1st one at SM Mall of Asia, were I watched great IMAX films like "I am Legend", "Dark Knight", "Beowulf", "Monsters vs. Aliens", and "Star Trek". I haven't seen the Transformers movie, but will watch it there soon.


IMAX Theatre at SM City North EDSA will open to the public on July 16, 2009. In time for the Harry Potter movie.

Here are the list of upcoming IMAX movies for the SM City North Edsa branch

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince – July 16, 2009
with exclusive IMAX 3D scenes
As Harry Potter begins his 6th year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he discovers an old book marked mysteriously "This book is the property of the Half-Blood Prince" and begins to learn more about Lord Voldemort's dark past.

Under The Sea 3D – August 2009

A Christmas Carol 3D – November 2009

SO how IMAX digital Theater system works?

The technologies of an IMAX theater includes:

1. IMAX Image Enhancer - IMAX’s proprietary image enhancer brightens the on-screen image, and, through the use of a camera that provides real-time, on-screen feedback, it makes automated adjustments to ensure maximum image fidelity is maintained 100% of the time.

2. Customized Theatre Geometry -IMAX’s customized theatre geometry maximizes your field of view, putting you IN the movie – and is a key reason why IMAX® 3D is the most immersive cinematic 3D ever created.

3.IMAX Audio System
-IMAX’s powerful audio system delivers laser-aligned digital sound.
- IMAX’s Proportional Point Source loudspeaker technology enables listeners to pinpoint the specific location of a sound – with five discrete audio channels. (conventional 5.1 disperses sound through many speakers making it nearly impossible to locate the origin of the sound)
- Each IMAX theatre is acoustically treated to present accurate and realistic sound images with the largest dynamic range. This enables the sound to be crisp enough to hear a pin drop and precise enough to know exactly where it dropped.
- Each film’s soundtrack is specially mastered for IMAX’s unique sound system.

4. IMAX Screen
- IMAX’s proprietary high-gain screen results in exceptionally bright images and unparalleled 3D
- The IMAX screen is slightly curved and sits closer to the audience.

5. Dual Digital Projectors
- IMAX’s revolutionary digital projection technology is “projector agnostic,” meaning that it can utilize commercially available digital technology that best meets IMAX requirements – the projectors are merely a vehicle for IMAX’s proprietary image enhancer, which turbo charges the basic functionality of the light engine.
- One of the key benefits of being projector agnostic is that IMAX can adapt and even improve as suppliers develop new technologies.
- The current system uses two 2k Christie projectors and has a 1.9:1 aspect ratio – in keeping with the best-tested chip sets – and we continue to work with dual 4k projectors.

6. IMAX DMR®
- All film content that is played through IMAX’s digital projection system is digitally re-mastered with IMAX DMR technology.
- IMAX DMR employs a suite of proprietary image enhancement tools that optimize each image for IMAX presentation. Some of the techniques used to enhance the digital image include sharpening, color correction, contrast and digital artifact removal.


i just learned that they used two 2k Christie projectors, I got introduced to this projectors last 2002 and I didn't know that they use this brand. And yes that's the best brand for projectors in the world. And the year 2002, didn't know that IMAX will be the next big thing in the revolution of cinemas.

G.I. Joe : Rise of Cobra - Official Movie Adaptation Comics (Preview)



The G.I. Joe Movie Adaptation #1 by Denton Tipton and Casey Maloney is here and it looks like that the comics will be available on July 1, 2009 and thanks to IDW Publishing for releasing a preview pages of the comics that is based on the live action movie of GI JOE: Rise of Cobra.

you can view the 6 page preview here at the Newsarama preview comics

The comics might be complete on its release before the official launch of the movie on August 2009, and because of this we can tell finally if the movie sucks. The start of the preview showed something about a little history of the Destro family, its weird that it reminds me of the Man in the Iron Mask, I thought that the guy is Cobra Commander, until I saw the big gem necklace wrapped around on his neck, and I'm now wondering that this is the real DESTRO and not the one we see on the movie.

Also the main story is revelead and its about that chemical weapon that eats metal. Which I think the GI JOE will be there to stop it.

Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen special screening (TV5) @ GB3

http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs112.snc1/5116_115783579275_567879275_2862211_1605197_n.jpg

This is my 3rd screening of the movie and it will be also my last screening, no more movies for Transformers and I will save more of my viewing pleasure when the original DVD arrives. Thanks to much to Myk and TV5 for another movie bloggers night treat, we love the free pop corns and pepsi drinks and raffle giveaways. It's fun to hang out with the movie bloggers group/club and it looks like that Harry Potter will be our next screening.

I just watched the film again and focuses on some other elements of the film, so sad that I didn't saw R2D2 in the film, as there are confirmation from ILM that theres an appearance of R2D2 somwhere in the Egyptian ruins or at the aircraft carrier. Also great to see Autobot Jolt in the last part of the film, and glad that I'm with my Transformers Philippines buddies who help me notice the one scene robot h ahahaa.

FAKE YOU!!!!!! (fake money in the Philippines)

http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w254/brrooommmm/200pesobillSNBY234364copy.jpg
image from tsikot forum

This struck me and it was painful to discover that I carry a fake P200 bill in my wallet and it's a big loss for me that night when the tollgate operator in coastal road confiscated it and now I don't have any basis on how to detect if the money bill is fake or not. I paid my jeepney fare that night and used my P200 to pay 2 seats of the ride and then the driver paid the tollgate fee using my P200 bill just to get some coins and bill change for my money. Then the driver told me that my money is fake.

I was nearly sleeping that night at 1am in the morning I suddenly turned horrified and shouted "huh?! fake!" and then the driver told me that the tollgate operator confiscated it. I'm glad that I have extra money with me that night and I'm almost running short and glad that I got some hundred of bills kept in my pocket.

I wondered and tracked down where I get that fake P200 bill, then I remembered that I paid a P1000 bill to this steak restaurant in Metrowalk before we watch the Fete dela Musique 2009 that evening. I remember that the waiter gave me some change of 100 and 200 bills plus coins, because its the only P200 bill that is present that's why I remember it.

It's kinda sucks that this steak restaurant has no equipment on how to detect fake money, I know every cashier in the metro now uses this portable UV ray money bill detector thing, and looks like that this restaurant has no knowledge of how important to take care of people's money and avoid fake money coming in to their cash register.

I still have the receipt of that steak restaurant and I'm planning to call them soon and report this incident, this should be avoided and protect their customers in receiving or giving bill changes of fake money, this is one serious case and I don''t want to experience it again, I just heard that there are P1000 bill fake money are circulating now. I learned a lot from this incident and I'm now very cautious and hope that this blog post can alert everyone that the fake moneys are very active in the market.

I don't know how to detect the money if it is fake,but if you look closely to it and you might tell the difference, I searched on google.com and found some interesting tips on how to detect our pesos bill or coins if its fake, and there are lots of blog posts sharing their experience about the fake money, you can read all of it here in the fake 200 pesos bill google search

here's what we should do if to avoid this

1. check the money bill if you receive it as a change, look at the money from back and front and observe if there are some signs of fake prints or ink glitches

2. if you receive a fake bill, report it to the restaurant or cashier and told them that it is fake, demand a replacement and tell them that you will not honor it

3. if you paid something and used a fake bill, the cashier person should have a UV ray detector, ask them to show you if it is fake, and make them sure they placed a pen label with the word "FAKE" in that fake money so that you know that it is really a fake money.

4. if it is indeed fake, accept the truth and I know it is not our fault, its kinda bad of luck, but we should be thankful that it is only a slight small amount of hundred of pesos. Pay your bill with the right amout and authentic money.

5. if you possess a fake money, rip it and throw it away, or you can write a label fake and keep it at your home, so that you can have your own reference and show it to your family or friends that they should be aware of the signs embeded on the fake money.

6. if you have other tips, feel free to post here in my comments board.

The technology that cares for your health


Every year we experience the rapid changes in our environment and because of our planet is now polluted and we are now conscious in caring for our health in every possible way. LG Electronics just launched LG Health+ here in the Philippines, a campaign with the slogan “Caring for your Health in Every Way”, other Asian countries also launched their campaign last April 2009. I'm very convinced to the way LG introduced to us their new technology that will help our environment and also for our health, with these new technology placed in their new set of appliances, we will no longer have the bad polluted effect from outside our house even we are inside of our home. The washing machine, refrigerator and microwave ovens now have this health caring technology that is very helpful to us humans. ( read more below)




Taking away germs, harmful microbes and allergens can now be filtered by their new air conditioners which we can now experience to breathe a cleanier fresh air at home and thanks to the advance filtration system that blocks viruses, bacteries and dusts that is harmful to kids and to people who have asthma. This is very useful especially this generation as we experience a swine flu outbreak.

Washing away those harmful detergens in our clothes and filtered the chemical away from our baby's shirts can be done by using LG's washing machine, and their new technology in washing machine has this smart cleaning mechanics which uses a sensor called I-sensor, the one that measures detergents residue and it adjusts the duration, temperature and water level.

Energy saving is now important to our appliances and this new LG refrigerator saves less energy due to its door cooling, a 3 way cooling system that makes the flow of air from the front door and circulates it to the door. It can cool the food faster and it preserves the vitamins and nutrients of fruits and vegetables, thanks to its Vitamin plus technology.

I also saw the new microwave oven, and yes it is the 1st circular shape microwave oven inside it, and the flow of heat is much more easy to hit the food and its more easy to clean it, as for experience in cleaning other microwave, I have this hard time in cleaning edges of the inside of the microwave and sometimes it can rust easy due to dirt and hard to reach edges in cleaning. The new health technology in LG Health Plus also have this steam and UV tech for dish containers, I'm very impressed on the technology it can kill germs and protect those plates and metal forks from rust and birth of germs.


watch above the video of their TVC


tvc video of the LG Health+ air conditioner



All appliances bare the logo of LG Health+, you can also look for that logo, and the stylish design also has this image of the flower that embeds on the new appliances, as a label for the Health+ design technology.

All of this was well presented to us in their visual presentation and got a close look in one of their appliance trade show. I really love that new microwave and refrigerator.


During the launching even, Angel Jacob, the host of the event, announces the Eco-mom award to Angel Aquino. We know Angel Aquino as a mom, tv host, magazine celeb, and also an eco activist, she went on stage to share her experience as a big supporter for saving mother Earth, she is also the Eco mom and endorser for LG Health+.

At the middle of the event, we got treated to try that yoga style and it was leaded by a Korean yogini expert and thanks to the visual presentation that I got the moves correctly, it was a fun activity and its my first time to do yoga in public. Then Korean boys went on stage to do some dancing and break dance stunt. It was a fun launching in Makati Shangri La hotel, and glad that we have LG here to save us and be healthy in every way.

and yes, LG life's good!

I watched the movie again last night and it was the special screening of Jollibee for the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen at Gateway Cineplex 6. For me it was the best screening ever, because Jollibee treated us with burger yums, drinks and lots of pop corns, they also gave away their kiddie meal Transformers toys to all kids, unfortunately the crew attendant doesn't allow us adults to receive the toys, I even beg to have Optimus Prime toy buy they say its only for kids awwww.

They raffled off some cool gift certificates and a set of Transformers tumblers, I feel like a kid again and got too much excited to see Optimus Prime flying off out of that cargo plane, that was so beautiful! and his apperance at Egypt near the Sphinx is such a classic. Im now excited to watch it again for the 3rd time this coming Friday at Greenbelt 3 and that will be my last screening hehehehe.

I'm with my sis that night and after arriving home she gave me a gift and its the 711 Transformers tumbler for the Slurpee, and its a Megatron figure in a straw with Optimus Prime lenticular cover of the tumbler. And finally a Toy Garage magazine with cover of this Mazinger Z new series for the Soul of Chogokin die cast figure and plus a list of features for the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen toys and figures.
