Hey everyone!
    As we charge ever closer to August 7, 2013 (Callous' 17th anniversary) I'll be featuring a couple of comic strips that had Dr. Rianne cameo in them.  These two are my colleagues in the Manila Bulletin, the newspaper that publishes Callous!

Dr. Rianne Nicah appears in an Ambush comic strip

    Ambush is by Andrew Villar, one of the first professional cartoonists I met in person.  His comic has been running in the Manila Bulletin for many years and has been the subject of many cosplayers.  Since I've met him he has been a staunch supporter of Callous and I greatly appreciate it!  Check out Ambush on its website, Facebook page, and do follow Andrew on Twitter and like his page on Facebook!

Dr. Rianne Nicah's cameo in Aha Hule

    Aha Hule is by Greco Milambiling!  He's been very helpful when I started in the paper which shows just how much an all-around great guy he is!  Do check out the Aha Hule page on Facebook and Greco's deviantART site!  I apologize to our international readers as this strip is beyond my skill to translate without losing its original hilarious humor. But to my fellow Filipinos, enjoy! :)

    August 7, 2013 is Callous' 17th Anniversary! I'm opening the site up to guest comics and/or art to help promote other artists and comics!  If you're interested in being featured, click HERE for details!
