The 500 Pesos Summer Komikon Challenge

Summer Komikon (with a K) has come and gone and let me write a short piece about this little challenge I did last weekend.



I set some rules for this self-imposed challenge of mine, and hopefully next time Komikon rolls in, you take a leaf from this little survival guide.

  • No Marvel or DC books
  • Nothing big like T-Shirts
  • Prints are OK but don’t go overboard
  • Have it signed and get a photo in with the creator.

So shall we begin?

Lyndon Gregorio’s Krisis Kada

Mr. Gregorio was kinda even to even do a quick sketch of me, even when I was incognito mode for the event.

I’ve been out of touch with the local creator scene so I didn’t know that he even made a cover for Star-Lord last year. Thanks Flipgeeks for the heads up on that one.

Total: 20

During the event she sold prints of her cool artwork and as a friend and staunch support, I picked up her P40 prints.

Total: P40

So I’m already at Php 240 and at this point, I’ve yet to do a full round of the Bayanihan Convention Center in Mandaluyong. Still I soldier on as I was a bit pressed for time.

My next stop was:

Grace Marcellana of Fandom Feels Ph

Fandom Feels basically sells all sorts of geek related stickers. During Komikon, they were selling stickers for P25/each with a promo of getting a 5th sticker free when you get a P100 worth of stickers. Here’s what I got.

Total: P100

Jolo Livelo does a pretty interesting 8-bit comic and he sold his stuff for Php 150

Total: 150

Truth be told I went over the budget by around P200 because I also wanted to support long-time FanboySEO followers Emman Centeno and Kahlil Baet for their works…

Be sure to stick around because I’ll be giving my review/ first impressions for the stuff I got on the road to Komikon in November.
