The first Filipino Comics Market or KOMIKET is all set to open today at Elements Centris, along EDSA corner Quezon Avenue in Quezon City.
Everyone—from curious comic books newbies to voracious book readers—are invited to discover the visual and literary genre of the Filipino komiks to the day long event, which proudly gathers promising comic book artists and writers across the country. Many of them will be on hand at the market throughout as soon as the doors open to personally talk about their work with visitors.
Komiket aims to help cultivate, promote and recognize local talent in Philippine komiks, and give more opportunities for creators to share their works with more readers.
Komiket is open until 8 p.m. For more information, log on to its official fan page on Facebook.
