My classmate and friend from grade school, Reno Maniquis is coming up with the sixth issue of his classic work, MASKARADO. It will be out in Comic Quest Megamall sometime next week for only Php 60 (tentatively priced at that). Reputed to be the penultimate chapter of the present storyarc, it's worth checking out! Why don't y'all grab TABLOID Issue 3 while you're at it. It's free! So what have you got to lose? Out of this world works by Dodo Dayao, Bong Leal, Jonas Diego and Ariel Atienza is featured in that issue.

Beerkada creator, Lyndon Gregorio will be having an autograph signing session tomorrow (but his books will also be available for perusal and sale till Friday) at Gloria Jeans Coffee in Shopwise Araneta Center, Cubao from 1-6 pm. I think there will be a book reading session from his latest offering, Go-Beerkada. If you haven't the foggiest idea what that entails then go attend. Free caricatures for a minimum amount of sales from either Shopwise or GJ Coffee.

They made a big splash in last year's UP Ame Convention, check Istrong Repablik's debut work now available at Comic Quest, Megamall.

Another indie that come highly recommended is Jon Zamar's mini comics, Minsan Ako'y Nanaginip: Digmaang Salinlahi which is now available in Comic Quest Megamall and SM North branch. Production for the third issue is currently being done, and the creators hope that issue would also be made available this month.

Initial Burst Studios is proud to offer you the best of the best, featuring the 4th Runner Up Awardee in the recent art contest that Neil Gaiman himself judged, Nelz Yumul with his Embracers; Atan "I-draw-directly-in-the-computer-using-Flash" Talas' SilentDestiny: The Hunted and some mind blowing features by the ever humble, Melchman.

Also up for grabs is a CD Rom-sized full color comic book, SilentDestiny: King of Fon. Also illustrated by Melchman.

Both books are written by Erwin Robledo.

We know you're all waiting for this. More details to follow in the coming days and weeks ahead.
