Coming Up: Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention 2012

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Thursday, August 23, 2012

Callous Comics

    Yes, you read it right!  Callous Comics is going to Singapore!
    This is the first time I'll be appearing outside my own country in a convention, so I'm really excited!  I have no idea what to expect as I haven't even attended STGCC before.  Braving the world, indeed!
    It's also quite heartening to discover that many of my friends from the Philippine comic community will be there as well.  So be sure to pass by my booth (F48) and that of the incredible people of Komikon (A16)!

    If you're new to the series, please do check out the About page!

    So what's in store from Callous Comics at STGCC 2012?
