veronica’s treasure

Here's the cover for the upcoming Veronica #171 from Archie Comics. You can find out more about this upcoming issue by checking out the article in YOU's Republic of Comics section.

The new YOU is still a beta site, but it's great that a number of US comic book publishers have already shown their support for Republic of Comics. Apart from Archie Comics, the companies which responded to my e-mail and who are supplying us with announcements, images and other content include Marvel, Dark Horse and Image.

One of the reasons I pushed for Republic of Comics was that we also want to do our share in promoting the works of Filipino comic book writers and artists, and in supporting Philippine comic book publishers. We've republished Ruel de Vera's review of Siglo: Passion, and we hope to feature more members of the Filipino comic book community.

More on this soon.

  1. It’s also nice to hear news from DC Comics in Republic of Comics, and also feature articles on comic artists whose works have made indelible marks in the industry. Hint: Alex Ross. Let me throw in another hint: Nicc Balce (of http://www.the-null.com) if you don’t want to go overseas πŸ™‚

    On a totally different note, I have finished my internship at INQ7 – Multimedia! One of the tasks assigned to me was to make studies on the new YOU website look, which I did, guess what, during my first working day. You could imagine the pressure. I was expecting a lighter load that usually came with being a “newbie” but well, I shouldve known better.

    Thanks to the INQ7 family. True enough, wonderful people bring wonderful experiences.

  2. hey kindred, great to hear from you again. astig, pinagawa sa ‘yo yung YOU studies on your first day. malupit talaga training ano haha!

    thanks for the suggestions. yup, also asked dc to supply us with content and stuff but yung ibang companies ang nauna — come on dc, you know you want to hehe πŸ™‚

    hey, wait, that reminds me, you haven’t submitted your blog addicts answers yet, have you hehe

    cheers,
    joey
