So, so busy with work! But while I'm at it, I'd like to squeeze in promoting this new Lastikman comic that my friend, Gerry Alanguilan, is part of.
Quoting the invite for yesterday's launch:
"Mango Comics invites you to the launch of its latest title for 2004, Mars Ravelo's Lastikman!
Just in time to celebrate the 40th year Anniversary of Mars Ravelo's fantastic, elastic creation, Mango Comics is proud to bring Lastikman back to the pages of comics in full color. Created in 1965, Lastikman comes to life through the writing of acclaimed comic book creator and inker Gerry Alanguilan (Wasted, Superman: Birthright), the art of two-time National Book Award winner Arnold Arre (Mythology Class, Trip to Tagaytay), and the brilliant colors of the talented Edgar Tadeo (Wolverine, Silver Surfer).
This special 56-page one shot pays homage to the original story of one of the country's most popular superheroes, and features a cameo from Mango Comics' newest creation. Mango Comics' Mars Ravelo's Lastikman is made possible in part through generous contributions to the Support Filipino Comics Program.
Be there as we celebrate 40 years of walastik superheroism! December 14, Tuesday, 4pm at PowerBooks Live! Greenbelt 4, Makati."
I know, I know... I should have posted this a few days back. Blame my work. Not me. Anyways, go grab a copy and support the resurgence of Filipino comics!
