Recognizing Filipino comic book artists who have unparalleled creativity and talent, Apple Premium Reseller has tapped known local comic book artists to contribute in a unique and significant comic art that’s exclusively made via the iPad Pro. This comic book compilation will be the first of its kind in the Philippines.
The enterprise was spearheaded by Dan Matutina, graphic designer and co-founder of Plus63 Design Co., and Charles Paw, CEO of Digits Trading Inc. They have chosen esteemed artists, Manix Abrera, Mervin Malonzo, and Harvey Tolibao to produce illustrated stories under the theme “beyond,” in reference to Beyond the Box’s mission statement of exploring possibilities and encouraging the push of limits.
Eventually titles as Beyond, the comic book was launched at the recent AsiaPOP Comicon at the SMX Convention Center. To add more delight in the fanfare, Manix Abrera, Mervin Malonzo, and Harvey Tolibao were also open for artist signings.–SUE D. NYM
