hot off the press

hey all!

thanks to mythman over there at the chatterbox, i got some great news from the Arnold Arre's website:

- As you all should know by now, Arnold Arre would be doing the pencils and inks of Lastikman, Mango Comics' latest comic venture. Gerry Alanguilan would be writing the revamped story and Edgar Tadeo would be doing the colors. This would be one title to watch out for (I smell National Book Award material)

- The Bigger News: Adarna House will be releasing the special collected edition of Arnold Arre's Award-Winning Mythology Class, complete with new scenes and sequences as well as exclusive pin-ups! No release date yet. Definitely something I can't help but get excited for!

In other news:

- I just got news from Culture Crash Comics managing editor Frances that Issue 15 is finally going to print! if all goes well, the issue would be at the stores in by next week or by the end of the month at the latest. reasons for the delay: highly sensitive information... I don't know it either. I just hope all is well within that office... must visit them one time.

oh, and here is something new...

Mini-Review: Cast 01

I finally got myself a copy of Nautilus Comics' Cast 01 after three consecutive days of frequenting Comic Quest SM North.

And I can definitely say that this is the real deal. This is the final product that we have all been given a taste of with Cast: Pre-Production. And it is a product worth buying or more appropriately, a production worth watching. Almost all the inconsistencies with the Pre-Prod issue has been worked out in this one; the art by Ronin Core looks great especially the detailed panels (like those family dinner scenes) and the carefully crafted script (written by Jaime Bautista) is laden with witty lines that mimic real highschool situations quite well.

All in all, Cast 01 is a great first issue. A professionally made production. A must buy.
