breakfast on monday

Thanks to Gerry, some of the Siglo creators and I will be guesting (is that the correct term?) on Studio 23's Breakfast, a TV show for the early risers.

It's a great opportunity to talk about Filipino comics in general, and our work with the Siglo "franchise" in particular, to the approximately 10 or so people awake at that time (wasn't that heartless of me?).

But seriously, any venue that allows us a chance to promote grafiction is something that we'll take advantage of. It's a matter of pressing the agenda forward. There are too many in our small industry who aren't willing to go the extra mile, as if the world will beat a path to our common doorstep without effort on our part.

It isn't enough to write, or draw, or create.

We need to get people to read and love these things as much as we do.

And if even one viewer on Monday goes out and buys a copy of Crest Hut Butt Shop, Wan, Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, Darna, After Eden, Two Color Truth Theater, Batch 72, Angel Ace, Beerkada, Siglo: Freedom or any of the available locally-produced works of love, then getting up at 5 AM is worth it.
