Guest Comic by Pilar Nenita P. Esber

Mishap Realms #95 is ©2010, Pilar Nenita P. Esber, originally published HERE. Republished with permission.

This great-looking guest comic strip is by Pilar Nenita P. Esber, the fantastic talent behind the endearing art of Mishap Realms!  Thanks for the awesome Cal Duck cameo!

Pilar is currently a Fine Arts and Designs student with a Major in Advertising whose lifelong passion for comics was further sparked upon meeting the great Gerry Alanguilan.

Mishap Realms features a depiction of the artist herself who has several Guardians (and a "soulmate"!) who represent various aspects of her personality to help guide her through the real world. It is filled with fantastic characters and delightful J-poppy videogame cameos (I spotted Brave Fencer Musashi)!

Pilar is the first guest comic strip artist I've met in person, as she purchased a copy of Callous - Chocolate Chip Wishes and Caffeine Dreams during the 2010 Metro Comic Con (you can read about my MCC experience in my blog entry)!  Since then, Pilar has given her thoughts on my little comic series in her website and has gone through most, if not all of my comics online!  She says she loves Callous, and for that I am forever grateful!

Mishap Realms is approaching its 100th comic strip and then I believe it will be revamped.  Keep an eye out for this one as it enters its new, exciting direction!
