Metro Comic Con 2009

If there is anything that should excite comic fanboys living in this side of the globe these days, it should definitely be the “Next Big Thing” called Metro Comic Con.

Formerly called Manila Comic Con,Ernest Hernandez, one of the event organizers, explained on a recent Comicology interview ( that getting a last minute name-change was just in place because people have been asking “why Manila when you guys are doing an event in Mandaluyong?”…  In the same interview, he tells us “Consider it the same person who just changed clothes. It’s still us.”

So here’s hoping that that could clear things up here and that no one would get confused in any way. Its still the same event at the same venue held during the same dates. Got that? Hope you did.

As I look at the schedule of activities, I can’t help but have the notion that this big event just keeps on getting bigger. What does that mean to me?.. Well it only makes me regret it more and more that I wont be able to attend! Haha!.. Anyway, I won’t let that stop me from supporting MCC and posting this blog post so here goes! :D
