ELMER 2nd Edition Book Launching

The first Komikero Edition of Elmer has finally sold out. Not to worry, Elmer will get it's 2nd Edition, this time published by National Book Store, and will now be available nationwide through all branches of National, Powerbooks and Bestsellers.

The 2nd Edition will have its launching on Saturday, October 15, 2011 at the Bestsellers branch on the 4th Floor of Robinson's Galleria in Ortigas. I will of course be on hand to sign copies!

Below is the final cover to the 2nd edition. This edition will only be available for sale in the Philippines, and will be virtually the same from the Komikero edition apart from a new afterword, a script sample and artworks previously available only on the Elmer Limited Edition Box Sets.

More Nominations for ELMER!

My French publisher Serge of Editions çà et là informed me in an email about a couple nominations that Elmer received recently:
“Good news: Elmer has been selected as contender for best comic book of the year award by two French festivals which are taking place later this year: Quai des Bulles ( ) which is a comic book festival, and Les Utopiales ( ) which is a Sci-Fi and Fantasy Festival, with a comic book category.”
