So I kinda wrote a story for a comic, which came out in GLU, a zine published by Team Magazine. It’s my first time to write a comic since, well, the 90s. It’s kind of cool because it’s like coming full circle for me since my first ever job was in second year high school, when I was 14. I wrote Batang X comics for Sonic Triangle Publishing. My dad set it up for me but I wrote the damn thing. 28 pages, once a week.
I was probably really bad at it but I was 14, making money, and writing a comic book. I never stopped writing, really.
So when Paolo Lorenzana, editor of Team, asked me to contribute a comic for GLU, their new project, I said, “Sure.”
So I wrote the story Full Moon in Venus for the zine, illustrated by Richard Mercado. I’m quite happy with it.
