My Komikon 2011 Report: WOW!

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, November 20, 2011, In : News, Announcements, Events 


    Nothing.  Nothing could have prepared me for the visceral Komikon crowd.  Even after going through the insanity that was Komikon 2010 as an attendee, I was absolutely astounded by the awesomeness of Komikon 2011 from behind the table!


Still early. People setting up their tables.

    I arrived in my usual early time for the ingress.  I was already quite excited due to my fond memories of Summer Komikon 2011.  Once I had my table all set up, I roamed around the convention hall before the even...

My Report: Metro Comic Con 2011

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, May 9, 2011,


    My experience with Metro Comic Con in 2010 was so overwhelmingly positive that I absolutely had to take part in MCC again in 2011.  I had far more material this time for con-goers to enjoy so I was pretty excited!
    Once again, like last year, I was the first among the artists in the Indie GO! Valley to arrive.  This was the area for Independent comic creators such as myself to set up shop for the convention.  The indie tables were located this year in the venue's periphery, albeit right...

Callous Comics and Webcomics: What's Cooking? at
Summer Komikon 2011 (Photo by Tepai Pascual)

    The 2011 Summer Komikon is done!  My second comic con (behind a table, that is) was a good one and Callous Comics did reasonably well considering I was essentially only selling one book.  Overall, this has been the most "chill" comic con I've ever been to, in more ways than one.  To me, that's a great thing!


Where I was situated during the event.  I was sharing one of many free exhibitor

Coming Up: Summer Komikon 2011

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Saturday, April 2, 2011, In : News, Announcements, Events 
    Summer Komikon 2011 is coming up fast!  This would only be my second comic convention appearance (behind a table, at least) and I'm thankful to say that I'm at least not as blind in my preparations as I was prior to my first 'con.  Nevertheless, my excitement has escalated quite significantly after this morning's exhibitor meeting.

    This year, the event has been given the alternative name, 2011 Komikon Summer Bayanihan.  A "bayanihan", originally, was a term given to the Filipino commun...

Coco Komodo and a Reformed Muscovy Duck

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, September 7, 2010, In : Callous 

I was faced with the task of redesigning Muscovy Duck after the events of The Land of the Guardians.  Will I bring his old spikey hair back or keep his DBZ-style 'do?  In the end, I supposed it would have been more feasible to have his last-seen features intact, including the clawed feet.  I did, however, give him his flowered Guardian Duck T-shirt back.  He's still in his green robe, only it is open and sans belt.  I'm currently writing his return in a new storyline which includes bringing b...
