Tobie Abad's DILIMAN final web comics issue
Tobie Abad's longest running web comics series DILIMAN will have it's final issue, and it will be available only online at

After so many years, it seems I will finally truly be able to end my online comic Diliman this year.  Thanks to my Egg, I've have what I need to finally end the series.  So to those who actually read it, or are still waiting to see how it ends, I can tell you, this year you're gonna get the closing issue. - Tobie via Alamat ML

and more of his email note

I need to make a new website for it though.  Photobucket runs out of bandwidth on the days many people start reading the book again, so I'm wondering if anyone has better recommendations of where I can have the whole 300+ page comic uploaded.

I've been busy with doing other creative projects too, and one of them was a short film for Victoria Court's Director's Cut Challenge.  The short film is on youtube and a winner will be chosen with 60% of the score based on the number of hits the video gets.  For those who want to help me win (views are for the whole month of April) do check it out and share the link around:

Lastly, I've been meaning to work on a new online comic.  One that tackles matters that are a bit more on the mature side (read, possible adult situations and issues) and I was wondering if anyone knows of a site where such a comic can be hosted without problems.   Nudity and sexual situations will be illustrated and tackled in such a book.

Thanks and here's to people who do indie stuff never giving up on their own work!

Indie Comics: The Long Road to Glory (via )

by Fidelis Tan

“It’s something to think of, for those who want to make comics—there’s no money, no market for our dreams to come true at the level we want them to, so we have to compromise,” said David.
Producing cheap zines for comics conventions is a compromise, he said. So is finding time in between one’s other priorities to continue working on one’s stories, as was the case with Tan and Baldisimo.
“You can find a way to do it even with work,” he said. “The plans you have in mind, that epic you’ve been thinking of since you were 16 years old, you don’t have to finish all that in a month. You just have to work on it, work on your comics, even while being realistic about your situation.”
“You might have to find a job, or do something else in between that thing you really want to do. For everyone with that kind of experience—hang in there.”


Leinil Francis Yu secret comic project with Mark Millar and Matthew Vaugh

*** thanks to Budj for sharing this news

Sure, we know about Mark Millar's plans to direct a mysterious superhero movie, and we've heard about the "Kick-Ass" sequel (titled "Balls to the Wall"), but now it looks like we have another project on the horizon from Millar and director Matthew Vaughn.
