Intermission: The OMG of OMG!!! Komiks!

OMG!!! Komiks! Just got featured in the 100 Araw ng Komiks Facebook Page!!!

100 Araw ng Komiks (a.k.a. 100 AnK) is a Facebook Community dedicated to promoting Pinoy Komiks online, and they have been my No. 1 Komiks Information Resource since last year. Almost everyday, 100 AnK would post fresh news about the industry, from featuring Indie komiks to announcing various komiks related events, and even following-up on the lives of local komiks artists. Those who had been following OMG!!! Komiks! both in Twitter and Facebook, will know that majority of my posts in these two social networks were retwitted or shared from the FB page of 100 AnK.

You can imagine how flabbergasted I was when I suddenly saw the OMG!!! Komiks! logo below the 100 Ank status update while scrolling my News Feed.

OMG!!! OMG!!! KYAAA!!!!!

So while I do a little celebratory dance, here are some pictures of the loot I got in the Ozine Fest 2012 held last April 13-15, 2012 at the Megatrade Halls 1 & 2 in SM Megamall .

Event souvenir containing the event map as well as tidbits on what's in store to the unsuspecting victims... I mean, visitors.

Fresh Blood~
Hot-off-the-presses (or photocopiers) komiks from the Indie Artist Booth and now a part of the OMG!!! Komiks! TBRnR (To Be Read and Reviewed)

Spankin' new Neko Mimis from the Purpektion Shop!

Neko Mimis when worn.
Next time, I'll be getting the Hello Kitty eyeglasses to match these.

I was lurking around the Ozine Fest last Sunday with the sole intention of getting new cat ears but I ended up taking home more than that (and going home later than expected ^_^;). There were more indie komiks sold at the event than my budget for the day, so I made a solemn promise to the artists that I will buy a copy at the next convention. Which reminds me...

It's almost that time of the year again, Komiks Fans!


Not yet? o_0! Shame on you!

You better start preparing because this year's Summer Komikon is going to bigger, better, and hotter than last year! And when I say hotter, I don't mean the weather!

BUT while waiting for the BIGGEST SUMMER EVENT EVER, let's take another walk back down the Memory Lane as I feature my Top Five Funny Komiks Stories one by one in the succeeding blog posts. These exceptional stories were chosen not just out of personal preference but also for their continued popularity even after Funny Komiks had disappeared. There were so many to choose from, each deserving their own 15 minute of fame. But I had to make the choice...

Okay. Enough of the drama! Let's get back down to business!

To the Funny Komiks fans out there: can you guess which story will be in the Number 5 spot?

Hint : Blue armor. Dog sidekick. And a magnet.

Have you guessed it yet?

Well if those clues sound like crazy talk and has left you in the dark, don't worry. Just watch out for my next post to find out the title of my No. 5 FK Story and how it made its way into the Top Five. ;) Plus, I will include links where you can read it for free! Awezum, right?! Hell yeah!

But for now, I'll need to give the cat ears a rest from all that dancing. ;)


Neko Mimi over and out!

Spread the word!
