Fame and fortune, here we come! Watch the entire segment (in Tagalog) below:
If that all-too-brief brush with the national news wasn’t enough for you, here’s another piece (also from GMA News) from a couple years ago actually let us put a few words in.
“Beyond Komikon: Young creators bring komiks to life” by Komiks Reporter Jerald Uy

Co-creator Chad Cabrera talks a bit about Drop Dead Dangerous and digital distribution in Komiks Reporter Jerald Uy’s coverage of Komikon 2012. Uy takes a look at the ins and outs of being an independent comic creator in the Philippines with inputs from some of the country’s established and up-and-coming talents.
“Media coverage always tends to go back to the Golden Age of Komiks, the heydays of Darna and Pedro Penduko on the newsstands in the 1950s. While it may be true that the current local comics industry suffers in comparison to the hefty revenues generated before by publishers Gasi and Atlas, the new generation of Filipino comic book creators is still a force to reckon with. With the help of technology, the upstarts combine their youthful creativity with online platforms that may make Mars Ravelo and other komiks legends green with envy.”
