For all you mighty fine folk who plan to be at the Bayanihan Center next Saturday, April 12, for this year’s Summer Kon, these are the new ‘Verse titles that are launching:

Issue 1 (of 3)
By David Hontiveros and Jason Confesor

18-year old Brandon Ramirez has been a superhero for almost 3 months now, and as if things weren’t complicated enough, he’s gone and fallen in love… with a lunar princess… who’s got a jealous childhood friend who happens to be a demon-werewolf hybrid, and who’s just decided to turn up the crazy in time for a really important dinner date!

Dakila. 18 years old. Cosmic champion.
All of a sudden, acne and getting a driver’s license are so not a big deal.

URIEL: Hekhalot
Issue 2B (of 4)
By David Hontiveros and Michael Urbano

Uriel is a mighty arel, held in reverence and awe by his fellow arelim, feared and despised by the shedim hordes.
And right now, his fate and existence lies in the hands of his seven-year-old mortal charge, Maleck de los Santos.

Uriel journeys to the diabul in an attempt to find a solution to his current problem: he must now find a way to leave Maleck’s body without harming the boy.
Meanwhile, Maleck’s doctor is sucked into the supernatural goings-on surrounding his young patient…


This baby should also be available at the Visprint table…

SEROKS Iteration 2: Once in a Lifetime
By David Hontiveros; illustrations by Alan Navarra

Return to the dystopic future world of SEROKS Iteration 1: Mirror Man in Once in a Lifetime.
Here, we meet two more of the 8 seroks of the world’s first superhero, Paladin, engineered from the DNA of popular yesteryear movie star-slash-disgraced ex-Philippine President Federico Rubio.
And find out more about the ones we’ve already met.

Plus, there’s also the world’s second superhero, Paladin, Jr., an enhanced clone of the tragically deceased movie star Taylor Kon, who’s teamed up with the first Paladin.

All that, and the rest of our SEROKS cast--Originals, Templates, or dupes--who are joined by some new faces, some familiar-looking, some not, and some, not even human.

So, while I’m uncertain as to the current status of Once in a Lifetime as far as the local bookstores are concerned--not sure when it’s gonna be stocked on shelves--it’s a safe bet copies will be available at Summer Kon.

So there we go.
Hope to see all you mighty fine folk at the Bayanihan Center next Saturday (April 12) for this year’s Summer Kon hijinx!

you can’t drink just six,
