It’s not what it sounds like.
Believe me, it was just too overwhelming to let pass.
John Nano, his brother in law (forgot you name, bro) and me opened up for the Komikon 2013 yesterday, and the exhibitors were just trickling in at 7:30am.
I was geeking it out! Imagine being in the same spot where Leinil Yu, and of course my favorite Gerry Alanguilan, and to know we will be sitting just back to back throughout the event. I checked if I still got some dough left to burn, not that I have much, really thinking I could finally own a copy of Wasted and when they did arrive, I practically stumbled to buy one and have it signed by the author himself.
Nerdy, I know, but who cares! I’m a 44-year-old kid acting like a fanboy.
So by the time Conde Amor and Clark Navarro came it was just a matter of time before we finished setting up before the doors open.
And oh boy, did the throng really went in like wildfire. It was a deluge of collectors, readers, artists exhibitors, and it was exhilirating to see such love for the art. I came here hoping to just present my own kind of komiks and I ended up loving every minute of the experience. Just to be with the people who make up the industry just. . . feels. . .right.
I could tell you all about it, but the pictures should tell the story –
