an event so EPICALLY fun that it deserves it's own entry.
Ladies and germs, we give to you ELBIKON 2014.
first time either.
So we'd know what to expect and if our memory serves us right, we did have a fun time back then.
And surely enough, this event even surpasses our preconceived expectations.
That this event was by far one of the best by our standards.
And we couldn't stress this enough: kung wala ka dun, WALA KA! Ba't ka pa nasa mundong ito?
Ba't ka pa nagkokomiks?
Because seriously, if you missed out on ELBIKON...the remainders of your life ain't worth living.
We actually have a thing for cemeteries, no seriously!
We had to bring this up again but the centerpiece of the venue kinda looked like the WARP ZONE from dem CASTLEVANIA game. And a lil' bit of WWE's Elimination Chamber.
Yeah, it was THAT serious!
Once more, kudos to THE GRAPHIC LITERATURE GUILD of UP LB for making life worth living again.
And why you might ask?
I mean, why the hell not?
For the first time in our miserable lives we were treated like KINGS (QUEENS even for the girls).
We shit you not, the hospitality and service that they gave was incomparable to none.
That would've been the norm at a run-of-the-mill convention setting.
But not at ELBIKON.
Elbikon is what Spongebob would've refer to as
You'd feel ashamed to have seconds because the people are so gracious and that you'd develop that guilty feeling that you should be paying for some of the food you're munching down.
of all the free food. We really felt sorry for ourselves and if there were any means possible that we could give something back to them (like right away)then that would've been just right for the hardworking men and women of Elbikon.
But alas, we are not some rich philanthropist playboy with an iron suit or some random vagrant disguised as a magical fairy. We are but humble artists.And with that in mind, every single request, every drawing...we see to it that we give something EXTRA.
Making every sketch count, making it EXTRA special/memorable and that all their efforts were well appreciated.
We sincerely hope to see her again so that we could correct the wrongs of the past and undo the future
that is AKU!

(Argh, no picture available either. But here he is signing his books.)
RASEL & SHEENNA
Kuya JON ZAMAR
NIKKO VALENZUELA (yeah, but he's a lil' busy right now. Let's check back on him a little later on.)
The sights and sounds:
And it makes us even more happier that so many people could learn to appreciate a collaborative effort
from the greatest supergroup of all time, THE QBCCC OSMOSI CREW.
We sold 10 copies of THE BODYSHOTS.
The stocks we brought were the same stocks from BAGUIO.
And truth be told we didn't have that many stickers. Refusing to sell incomplete books....yeah, that's a SSM! tradition right there!
Need I say more about PUNCHPUNK/PUNKPUNCH?
The reality is just starting to sink in and we are nerding to fuck out because we just realized that this right here is one helluva sweet deal.
And surprisingly enough all proceeds were going straight to our pockets....SWEEETS!
For the bakers of the said heavenly cookies are finally here.
NEVER EVER happened before.
And what else is a swell surprise?
The answer is you can't, so quit trying!
We also scored us some cool freebies like FREE SNACKS from Tepai x Kuya Jon.
Tote bags.THIS free sketch form MIKE.
Most especially for Fallen Ash #2!
We also went upstairs, where we saw Ungga Ayala Snuka
and AANG give a passionate blowjob to EGON.
That's that, ELBIKON, UPLB, THE GRAPHIC LITERATURE GUILD, PAULINE, BRET, APOL, JAPS, TOBY, KAROL, DAN, AJ,ELAI (oh god are we missing anyone?), THANKS SA LAHAT at sa uulitin.
