Humanis Rex #21

First of all, apologies for the lack of updates. The Internet has been mind numbingly ssslllloooooo o o o o o o o w for me the past couple of weeks. Many sites just won't open for me, including this one. But it seems all better now, although some sites still load slowly. Lots of news, first and foremost being, Tony DeZuniga's art exhibit at Megamall. I went there for the opening last night and it was like a reunion of old and new comics people. It was something to see. Naturally, I had my camera with me.



SUPERHEROES
Tony DeZuniga Art Exhibit
Crucible Gallery
4th Floor, SM Megamall
Metro Manila, Philippines
Ongoing, beginning January 16, 2007

And I guess by this time you would know that I just can't resist making a video of this event. Here's the one hosted at You Tube:

And here's the one hosted at Live Video. It's actually the same video, but the video quality might be a bit better for the ones with faster connections.

ELMER: One of Forbidden Planets' Best of 2006!


I missed sharing this previously becauseof my slow connection, but Forbidden Planet has named ELMER as one of the best comics of 2006. Thanks to all you guys at Forbidden Planet!

If you're in the UK, or if you're in any part of the world, actually, you can order ELMER from them directly at this page.

Jess Jodloman

Jess Jodloman is an artist whose work I've loved for a long time. Here in the Philippines, his masterpiece RAMIR is still considered by those who remember it as one of the best comics stories ever produced in the country.

He is probably most known in the US as the artist of Conan and many mystery/horror/war titles for DC Comics.

I was happy to have finally met Jess personally at last year's Komikon and I have been speaking with him and his daughter Grace off and on since then and they've shared with me some really stunning images for Jess's upcoming gallery. I'll also be interviewing Jess himself early in February and I'll definitely upload it here when the time comes.

SUPERHEROES

Tony DeZuniga Art Exhibit

Crucible Gallery
4th Floor, SM Megamall
Mandaluyong, Metro Manila
Exhibit Opening: 6:00 PM, January 16, 2007


For those who will be going, Tony himself will be there on opening night. I'll try to be there, but I can't be sure. January is pretty hectic for me as well, and that date is pretty near a Humanis Rex! deadline. Let's see.

I recently did a video interview with Tony DeZuniga, asking him about his reasons for choosing comics as a career, how Jonah Hex was designed, and how he seems to get better and better with age. The interview is in Tagalog, but it has English subtitles.

The Crimeans Freak Out!
Humanis Rex #20!


This January, I'll be concentrating on both Humanis Rex! and ELMER. Humanis Rex is about to wrap up so I'm making sure it goes out with a huge bang.

I may have to move the release of ELMER to a later date, not only to give me time to do it, but I would also have to set aside funds for the publication of my dad's poetry book, in time for his 70th birthday in March.
