siglo: freedom via business world

Something from the online edition of Business World, Wednesday, January 7, 2004 (oddly, the link may not work, but Google's snapshot does)

"New book

Launched on Dec. 20 was the graphic novel Siglo: Freedom, a compilation of 10 sequential stories combining the work of some of the best authors and illustrators in the country. Creators include Gerry Alanguilan (Artist for DC, Marvel, and Image Comics), Nikki Alfar (National Book Awardee and Anvil Award Winning Editor), Arnold Arre (two-time National Book Awardee), Jason Banico (creator of Baylans), Marco Dimaano (creator of Angel Ace), Andrew Drilon (Likha Awardee for Comics), Honoel Ibardolaza (two-time Palanca Awardee for Literature), Lan Medina (Eisner Awardee and artist for Marvel and Image), Elbert Or (creator of Two-Color Theater) and botanical artist Reia Vergara-Simbulan. Each story in the book is set in a selected decade from 1910 to 2009, and focuses on one person in that decade whether fictional or real. The 140-page novel was edited by five-time Palanca Awardee for Literature Dean Francis Alfar and National Book Awardee Vin Simbulan, with the art direction of another National Book Awardee, Carlo Vergara."
