Hey everyone!

    It's summertime once again here in the Philippines and the premier comic event of the season is just around the corner!  On May 26, 2012, all roads of fantasy, adventure, humor, and superheroic excitement lead to the Bayanihan Center in Pasig City!  Here comes Summer Komikon 2012!

    Once again, Callous Comics will be at the independent comics area, known in Komikon events as the Indie Komiks Tiangge (see the other indie comic creators in the area)!  Here's what's in store for you from the Callous Comics tabletop!

    Those who do purchase the cookbook will receive a limited-edition Captain TGT magnet featuring artwork by Lar deSouza for FREE!  That's a combined value of USD $21.95!  Also, I'll put in a free sketch into the book's sketch page to start off your collection.

5. Callous Comics Button Pins (Php 30 each)
