Well that was a blast.
I started the day relatively slow. I was placed in a line up with the rest of the Visprint heavy-weights. To my right was Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo, creators of Trese, and to my left was Mannix Abrerra, creator of Kiko Machine. Soon after, Carlo Vergar, creator of Zsa Zsa Zsaturnahhh, occupied the seat right next to me.
Needless to say, my poor little comic book was struggling to find air time in the steady stream of fans heading towards these giants of Philippine comic books.
I busted out my sales call: FILIPINO HEROES LEAGUE - WORLD-CLASS STORY TELLING AT THIRD-WORLD PRICES. I got strange looks so I stopped promptly.
In the end though, a lot of their fans picked up the book and bought and others actually sought me out!
A big thanks to everyone who picked up a copy! In a weeks time, it will be available in National Bookstore, I heard. I'll confirm.
For those who are abroad, I'm still trying to figure out a way I can deliver through an online store or something.
Again, thanks to those who bought! You made my day.
PS. EXTRA SPECIAL THANKS GOES TO BUDJETTE, WELLA, CARVER, MANNIX AND KAJO FOR GUIDING ME THROUGH MY FIRST BOOK LAUNCH. Oh an extra-extra special thanks to Nida for giving me the opportunity.
