Mini-Komikon at Comic Odyssey: Anacleto,Tan,Monsanto Event!

Someone mentioned it was like a mini comic convention was going on. The hottest names in Pinoy comic illustration stormed the Comic Odyssey, Robinson’s Galleria Mall to honor the dentist turned pencilling genius Jay Anacleto, now bigger but still good friend Philip Tan, and all-around comics & family man Gilbert Monsantoin a comic book signing event.


We hardly get to see Jay Anacleto, even less of Philip Tan (who only flew back to the Philippines from LA to visit his ailing grandmother.) Gilbert normally is busy with family and his company. They were all in high spirits and the room wasn’t quiet for one second.

Me and Philip

(No, I am not Philip’s brother.)

Comic Odyssey soon got packed with fans and artists. (The place is just over 32 square meters) Some people were waiting for their turn for a sketch not only from the 3 gentlemen, but also from artists Gerry Alanguilan, Edgar Tadeo, Carlo Pagulayan, and Leinil Yu.

During the event I got to watch techniques as well listen in on prices and page rates – very intriguing. It was still a friendly reunion for the younger generation of comic book artists, especially for those who had the opportunity to teach and study under Whilce Portacio’s comic book art school “LEARN”.

A few quick videos of Jay and Gilbert doing their thing:

A big thank you to Sandy of Comic Odyssey for organizing the event and the after-event dining for the guests of honor.
