Boy Sipok strikes again at the 2nd C3

Posted in comics, SDR Comics, the works by R.L. Bertulfo on October 26, 2011

Aside from my previous post, this one tops it off by a mile. I’ve been wanting to post updates of this and that on the whereabouts of Boy Sipok Comics come the 2nd C3 but I was to darn pressed in finishing the book out that I forgot to update this blog about until now and by golly much delay it is.

I started feverishly working on Boy Sipok: The 2nd C3 Companion only 2 weeks to the aforementioned 2nd Cebu Comics Convention as my usual. The first Boy Sipok comics was done in that fashion as well last C3 2010 so I can safely say that this is my usual routine with regards to making my sequentials, I like to cram, period, so sue me. I have a day job to get jiggy with and I can hardly squeeze a project or two but I try my darn best because for the love of the medium.

From the 12 page objective to the final 8 pages I was really racking my brains out in coming up with a Boy Sipok comics come 2nd C3. All I can say that I was proud to an extent and quite abashed actually that I have to go thru the same predicament I was in last year that I promised thereafter that I would not succumb myself to which I clearly failed. But at least I made it thru the rain, so to speak and I am sucking on it. I dare say, I shan’t do it again…nah….frig it.

A little background, Boy Sipok is my own creation, some would say its me personified but I have yet to see a resemblance. You guys can read this post, or this to help speed things up.

About the event itself (please read previous post for more details), Boy Sipok was one  of Super Debil Robot Comics catalogue to grace the SDR booth from my own line Imprenta de la Cucaracha Rebelarse, a rebellious imprint of SDR Comics. Honestly, I only sold a handful of it and I would personally thank you guys here in me humble blog…all 5 of you god fearing men and women who laboriously visited and checked us out on our little SDR booth and shelling out your hard earned P25.00 bucks. Hope you enjoyed it as much I enjoyed making it. Maybe come next C3 Boy Sipok would fare better but only if I make one better in the near future. I do hope I won’t disappoint. Well, just an update, if you have friends up north or the ones reading this blog happens to be in Manila this November 19 (?) for the Komikon 2011 I do hope could come by forcefully to our little SDR Comics booth. Tom and Suede will be there with open arms and legs to greet you (I can’t come again like the last time for financial reasons but the guys will be there in my stead) and maybe, just maybe, the Boy Sipok: The 2nd C3 Companion would tug at your geeky hearts and make you shell out some P25.00 love I would gladly appreciate the support you will give as you folks up there did at last years Komikon (see related post here). Other folks not from up north or otherwise you can always order directly from us at sdrcomics@gmail.com or post a message here so that we can come with an agreement.

Well, it was fun, I hope to do some more soon in the future. All hail, comics!

I know its a bit late, week to be exact, but I just want to thank the Komikon 2010 guys and the Metro Manila komiks fans out there who bought and shelled out there hard earned P20.00 to buy Boy Sipok: Invades the Komikon edition and who in turn bought some other titles from the SDR Comics Booth (The Urban Animal no.1 sold friggin out, how cool is that? Fort Bastard sure is happy) there. Hope you guys don’t stop continuing to support our little Cebuano comic book scene here. I would like to specially thank Motmot and Suede and Bobols for making the comics available for you guys there by actively participating at the Komikon 2010, you guys are incredible, keep up the good fight as is our objective in giving birth to Super Debil Robot Comics in the first place and also, I finally got hold of Kapitan Tog Issues 1 and 2 and Sulyap because of you guys. I am currently plotting out a 22 page Boy Sipok related  stuff to be hopefully put out early next year, black n white interiors and color covers which will be a notch higher in quality than the previous two releases, so stay tuned or whatever (is anyone really reading this blog?hehehe) . nuff said. back to work m-effers! Mabuhay ang Pilipinong Komikero!
