Araw ng KalayaanJun 11
It’s “Araw ng Kalayaan” (Independence Day) today for us Pinoys but for Gio Paredes, the occasion takes on new meaning. It’s the 2nd year anniversary for his Kalayaan comics and at the same time, the release of the 7th issue.
Yes, you read that right. Gio has managed to come up with 7 issues in just 2 years . That’s really a pretty impressive achievement for an independent comics creator, if you ask me.
For this issue, I’ve also contributed as one of the editors. Of course, it was absolutely fun to do for a fanboy like me. I mean I get to see all the artworks and read the story before other readers do, hahah!
I assure you, its a good issue – and upcoming artist Erwin Ropa rocks! His fresh take on Kalayaan for this issue just brings the title to another level.
Anyway, hang on for a “Panels and Pages” interview feature within the month in mys site – Planet Markus. I’ll be featuring Gio Paredes preety soon as well. In the mean time, those who want to grab their copies of Kalayaan #7 can go to the 8th Philippine ToyCon this June 13 and 14 at the Megatradehall in Megamall and buy their copies there.
