comic book advocacy

I just finished being interviewed by a pair of writers from Heraldo Filipino, and the topic was the history of Filipino comic books and its current state. I made sure to point them out to Gerry, whose is a bigger and more knowledgable advocate than I am, but was able to tell them about the current day and the handful of years I've been "active".

I've also been invited to guest-edit an online literary publication that will focus on graphic literature in a few months time. This is a big deal for me because it is an opportunity to position grafiction toe-to-toe with the best of Philippine literature. Previous issues of the journal have featured award-winning fiction, plays and poetry. More on this as it develops.
