This I ask. Have I lowered myself so much that people begin thinking of me as a bargain? Yeah, here's one Atenista for sale. P10,000 only.
Sorry if I feel that way. I just feel cynical today.
Speaking of being cynical. I dropped by Comic Quest to look for some discounted comic items. Sadly the Filipino titles (the one's I really collect) aren't discounted. But I still bought a copy of Siglo and the latest issue of Culture Crash. I haven't finished reading all the 10 entries in the anthology but so far, I've got one thing to say. I find most of the entries cynical, including that one authored by our former COMICOL editor. Although it speaks of freedom, I can't help feeling negative after reading them.
However, that hasn't totally drawn me away from Siglo. I also find the entries honest and realistic. Plus, it's a work of art, of artists wanting to establish the presence of an authentic comic industry in our hope-needing country. I especially liked the one written and drawn by Honoel Ibardolaza. And another surprise (for me) was the fact that one of the authors of Siglo is a PsCE grad! (W00t!)
