Komikon 2009: Summer Fiesta Reminder

Just a reminder to all komiks fans out there: the Summer installment of the annual convention for Filipino-made comics is just around the corner–this Saturday in fact–so better start saving those pesos. After all, wouldn’t we all rather have three graphic novels than three square meals? 😛

Here are the details from the Komikon blog and the official website:

If anyone wants to plug their Kokion stuff, let me know. ^_^
