Look what I have here! 😀
I just got the first batch of my graphic novel, “Silly Persons” printed. I self-published it. This is just like a “test print” as I will print another batch before Indieket in August, Komiket in October and the annual Komikon in November this year. I’m just trying out Sir Reno Maniquis’ printing services, and so far, I really like the outcome of their printing. Although there was one copy where I had to remove the staple and rearrange the pages again before stapling it back again. And there is also another page where the printing on that page kind of reflected on the succeeding page so it got a mark or like a stain on the page. You can see the second photo I posted above to see what I mean. Other than that, it’s all good. I asked them to print the cover page on a smooth and a bit shiny quality board and for the interior pages, on a standard quality paper. I’m going to give away those business cards on comic events and I’ve also inserted each of them on a self-adhesive vinyl pockets. Everything that they printed looks great and to my comics-people friends, I highly recommend them. Their printing services rates are very affordable and you can even just send your digital files to them, talk about the details of the printing services you want on email and once everything’s clear, they will print your comics and send them to you via a courier if you want. They even made sure the printed comics won’t have any damages on the courier during transit as they placed my comics on a box so it’ll protect the pages inside. Check out their Facebook page:

And here are some links of Sir Reno’s work. Check it out:
I’ve also bought some of his work last 2015 and last year. I’m not sure, but I think Sir Reno has syndicated comics published by a newspaper here in Manila and he also has published work in Canada.
I won’t be able to attend Summer Komikon this coming April as a comic artist so if you guys want to grab a copy of Silly Persons in printed form and support me, please wait until the comic events I’ve already wrote above on this blog post. I don’t think so highly of myself but I just wanted to say this to all the readers of my comics, if you guys meet me on comic events, please don’t take a photo or video of me as I am more comfortable behind the camera, not in front of the camera. 😀
I’ll also make another comic book before August and I’ll ask Sir Reno to print them again so I’ll be selling two comic books on those events. If you want to reserve a copy of “Silly Persons”, just e-mail me. You can find my e-mail addresses on my websites.
Cheers to everyone who follows my work.
