Rest In Peace Sir Arlan (12/8/1973-2/18/2010)

I was notified via FB today of this upsetting news.  During my last post about a month ago I blogged and was proud to atleast help spread Sir Gerry and Arlan’s  latest and greatest release “Where Bold Stars Go to Die” here in Cebu together with the SDR Crew, helping out in our own little way.  What a sad day this has been.

To Sir Arlan, wherever you may be, wish I could’ve atleast known you personally. Wish you had more time and more wonderful art to give to this world. The Philippine Komiks industry is at a loss surely. Thank you for giving and leaving  us with  “Where Bold Stars Go to Die”. You are an inspiration. Rest in Peace, Sir.

Captin N12 Has Arrived!!!

It’s finally here folks (and right on schedule I believe), like it or not and yes for only P50.00 bucks. Don’t mind rationalizing the consequences of buying the book, it’s all but worth it. Its like buying a bottle of beer and some pulutan nuts or a short time nookie at TMS Lodge (as others have told me mind you) but only with this baby its a keeper. Releasing Captin N12 in the wild is an event itself because we at SDR Comics in some way, small or large, hold the beacon of a once dead comic book scene here in Cebu and we do so hope we can make more of the like so that not only will Manila be our only thriving area for local comic book goodness but let them reckon that the Queen City of the South has something to offer as well. Trust me like you trust a certain brand of a popular condom. I’m really happy for this guy here for it is his labor of creation (or as his title post suggested here), I have yet to know the feeling man. Soonest I hope.

If you wanna get one of these babies up and if you are a local resident of Cebu then there’s no problem, just contact us via email and lets decide where we would meet up and where within the cities limits. I will be posting also the local sightings of Captin N12 Issues where you can get it at your convenience. For orders outside Cebu, we can arrange something for sure so don’t you worry true believers (copyright Stan the man Lee) just drop us a line and we will be happy to accommodate whatever dark fantasies you may harbor.

Also, as I have always mentioned in forums or in this here humble blog of mine. If you (and that is if you are from Cebu) have some comic book creation dusting about somewhere, consider us and we might come to an agreement to breath life on you masterpiece. Let SDR Comics publish it for you. We need all the help we can get to keep this movement thriving. Peace!

p.s.

We at SDR Comics now have a discussion board at Google Groups. Lets get acquainted there and decide on some issues percolating in and around SDR Comics and the Cebu comic book scene. Have a Google account?Join us, click here.
