Araw ng “MA-I” (September 20, 2015)
Last September 17, we formally launched our first graphic novel series entitled “MA-I” at the 36th Manila International Bookfair at the SMX Convention Center. During that time we received positive feedback already especially from other authors that our advocacy behind the series was actually promising.
September 20 was a bigger day for us though. Our target audience filled the crowd– friends and passers by. Plus, we had cosplayers catch the attention of everyone!.

We’d like to thank CSM for believing in our vision to bring the Filipino cultural heritage to our modern day literature and for arranging all these events for “MA-I.” We’d also like to thank the Naruto Cosplayers for being responsive and willing to do this with us. And of course to friends and families. Here’s the thanks that I posted the other day:

Thank you to all who supported MA-I and our advocacy to bring our pre-hispanic Filipino culture to modern-day lïterature! ,(oha, rhyme yun!) Sorry too if I've inevitably flooded your news feeds! Sana nagenjoy naman kayo kahit pano. Cheers to CSM (ang bangis talaga ng suporta nyo), Naruto Cosplayers, CBC family, Victory Pioneer friends, and our other nakamas! Sa mga nabitin, umiyak, atbp. Hintay lang muna, may tamang panahon para diyan. kasisimula lang e. Nuod muna tayo ng #kalyeserye habang naghihintay. Pwede ko ng kainin yung Mars. Nung isang araw pa niya ako tinatawag e pero di ko siya maasikaso. Pwede na rin kami manuod ng #heneralLuna. Ito na ang tunay na pakikipagsapalaran. Kay Bathala ang papuri! #maikomiks
