Hey guys! Guess what? I’m #FUnemployed! With no pesky job to get in the way, I will hopefully be able to blog more and more over the coming weeks! I hope to get to post actual, full reviews eventually, but for the moment, lemme recap your week in books!
Another thing that Gerry Alanguilan is famous for.
Anybody who follows the comic book scene here in the country probably already knows that our very own Gerry Alanguilan was recently awarded the Prix Asie-ACBD 2011 for “Elmer”, which tells the story of a world where chickens have become sentient and are now fighting for equal rights with humans.
Even before winning the Prix Asie-ACBD, “Elmer” was already garnering acclaim, earning an Eisner Award nomination, probably the highest honor awarded to comic books.
This new set of honors is only the latest for the popular Marvel inker, who has worked on such titles as the “X-Men”, “Wolverine”, and “Fantastic Four” and who has come out with critically-acclaimed local works like “Wasted”, “Timawa”, and “Humanis Rex”.
I was lucky enough to ask him a few questions for an article that came out last week, and under the cut is the full transcript of the interview, with some answers that never made it to the final copy.
