Been a long time since I last posted something here... Anyway, you can now hold Kloud Komix (my webcomic strip about cloud formations over Manila) in your hands! 26 pages of cloudiness.  You can give it to kids as a coloring book. It will be available for download somewhere soon or you could always check out the site, I update it with new stuff as often as I can -

Elmore Leonard (1925-2013)

About 10 years ago, Mr. Leonard's book Rum Punch started my obsession with crime fiction. One of my literary heroes. Rest in peace, Dutch! You will be missed...

Kirby. Jack Kirby.

My good buddy, Dark Chapel (yes, that is his real name) big boss of the very cool, very punk komix-antho Silent Sanctum Manga! (or SSM!) and I started a Jack Kirby tribute blog. Because we love the guy. Here is my first illustration...

Ray Harryhausen (1920 - 2013)

Movies like Clash of the Titans (the original one, not the poop-filled remake), Jason & The Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad were a huge part of my childhood. I used to watch those movies at least once a year when I was around 5-10 years old. They still remain as some of my favorite movies of all time...

Thanks for the memories, Mr. Harryhausen! Rest in peace.

I have never been or ever will be a Superman fan. I just do not "get" him. But I do love fictional super powered beings & I do believe most, if not all fictional super powered beings are based on or inspired by him. So here's my tribute to the Man of Steel & his creators, Joe Shuster & Jerry Siegel. (Belated) Happy 75th Anniversary!

The black & white version... here. :)

Suicide Squid

One day, Josel Nicolas and I were discussing the merits of John Ostrander's Suicide Squad run, which we haven't read (hahahaha!) & Micheal Fiffe's superhero comic Copra. When suddenly, Josel blurted out... "SUICIDE SQUID!" & suggested I create a character out of the name. So after taking a few days off of drawing Attack Bear pages. Here he is...

Design influenced by Rob Liefeld (because a human / squid hybrid needs them shoulder pads & pouches) & Fiffe's stuff. Tried spoofing those U.S. Army - Army of One ads that appeared in early 2000 / mid-2000 comic books. This guy will be appearing soon in the Yeti Crab comic...

First comic project for the year is...

DONE! Wooo!

My first long (yet still short) Yeti Crab story is finally finished. Very very excited see the thing screen printed. Will be making a full length Yeti Crab comic before the year ends. Check out pages 1 & 2 again, now with words!

Also, here are some WIP logos for the upcoming comics...

Off to finish Attack Bear!

The Origin of the Yeti Crab

Almost done with my 7-page komix contribution to a screen-printed komix anthology out first quarter of this year. The short komik is about the origin of the Yeti Crab. A character I created after seeing a picture of an actual yeti crab (MOST AWESOME CRUSTACEAN EVER!). Originally planned to just do 3 to 4 panel strips with YC & use them as fillers for my auto-bio comix, ???. The first story that I proposed for the anthology got dropped since the page count was cut down. Thankfully, the curator of the anthology suggested a YC story. Brilliant idea, the problem was I didn't have any long YC stories planned out. So how was I able to conjure up this story / long term plans for YC? By listening to the old The Shadow radio show (voiced by Orson Welles!). I love the pulps, The Phantom, Doc Savage, Conan. Enigmatic heroes, crazy stereotypical villains, world spanning high adventure, weird science. Add some Tintin by HergĂ©, some superhero styled origin and my fascination with cryptids. This is what you get...

Sorry, no dialogue / narration yet. I have 1 more page to ink then finish off the lettering. Hope you get the komix when it comes out.

P.S. - Don't know the title of the anthology yet but it'll feature local komix peeps such as... Josel Nicolas, Dark Chaps (of SSM!), Trizha Ko, Mica Agregado & some other guys, i think.
