Komiket October 2018

October 14, 2018

Ahoy there mates,

I went to Komiket yesterday, October 13, 2018. I was so early that the event hasn’t even started when I got there, around quarter to ten in the morning. Took these photos right when I entered the venue and when the doors were opened.

I dropped by at the table of my friends and said my hello’s to them again. Afterwards, I decided to roam around and sniffed and inhaled the air all these people breathed. Just kidding though. And then, I bought some comics and you can see my Komiket October 2018 haul:

I saw a few old copies of Sandman comics by sir Neil Gaiman and also some old works of sir Warren Ellis for only a hundred Philippine pesos each for some, and some, for only a hundred and fifty pesos each, so I immediately bought them as I’m a big fan of the both of them. Bought some other comics as well and then some local comics. I wasn’t able to find some of the local comic creators that I wanted to see so that I could buy their comics and merch as I went so early. They probably got there at a later time so probably next time, I guess. Will promise to buy more local comics next time as well. Most of them were just not around when I got in the venue like I’ve mentioned.

I’m pretty much excited to make my upcoming comic book/picture book, “JeST DO IT come November. Tomorrow and for the last remaining weeks of October, I’ll continue my weekly silly Inktober 2018 entries. After I make “JeST DO IT”, I think I’ll try to stay away from social media for as long as I can as I badly need a break from it. Probably a day or two. Just kidding. Most probably at least a month? I’ll take a rest from all the liking I make on all people on my friends lists on social media websites. Kidding aside, I just want to take a break from social media for a while. I’ll also start selling “JeST DO IT” in February of 2019 at Komiket. In case you guys are wondering what Komiket means, I think it means, comics and art market.

While I’m taking a break from social media, I’ll focus on my hobbies and passions -reading, writing, drawing, playing music and watching sports. Now that I mentioned sports, watching a daily sports show, shown here in Manila every night completes my day. Not to mention, the lady sportscasters are my kind of girls. Haha. πŸ˜€

Some people say I brag a lot. That’s not true. I’m just probably trying to be funny in some way but I assure you, I don’t think so highly of myself and I don’t brag. I’m also not some stuck-up hipster who only caters to other hipsters as well. I’m a friendly guy and I’m just like any normal millennial out there. Albeit, I try to be different most of the time, because, why not, right? πŸ˜€

I’ve come so far since the inception of Killer Kamote Komiks in 2014, I’ve already put out twenty-four silly issues for four years (2014-2018) and my upcoming comic book/picture book, “JeST DO IT” will be the twenty-fifth issue. To all the people who reads and follows my work, I wish everyone of you lots of loving, all your lives and my upcoming comic book/picture book, “JeST DO IT” is dedicated to each and everyone of you. πŸ˜€

Cheers.

Your friend,
Vin
