"Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady" comics covers


This is what the outside cover spread will look like. Back cover art is by the book's artist Elmer Cantada. You can also find Elmer's artwork in Black Ink Comics' "Vergil: The Warrior Angel," which is available at National Bookstore.

I've made a few changes to the script for the comics adaptation, but the text is mostly intact.

I'm presently coordinating with super publisher Visprint on the edits and finalization of graphics files for production. This can be a meticulous process; I'm sure those of you who have worked in publishing in one way or another know how much of a necessary evil editing is.

If you didn't already know, the play will be restaged in June next year, during the 10th Virgin Labfest at the CCP.

Anyway, we're gunning for this November's Komikon to release this baby. I hope it'll make it to the bookstores soon after that, though I don't know if it will be available in stores before Christmas. Here's a sample page which I had posted on Facebook.

Dear Sir Carlo;

Good evening!

I am a Bernadette Arcangel from Smartebook that has been in operation for over 13 years, we provide ebooks platform solutions wherein our company handles the whole digitation to telecommunication companies. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to enter a no cost and non-exclusive partnership with us to distribute your contents in the Philippines or you may please choose with our 28 carriers globally.

What is it for your Books? Our company convert contents in PDF Format in our own DRM system to encrypt in FSD format (to avoid decryption and illegal copying) and will make it available in our estore from different countries like for example in the Philippines with Smart, Sun and Globe estore. Smartebook provides e-reader that supports multi-media platform. This new approach will enable us to tap the smartphone users and the consumers that do not have means to go to the bookstore or use their credit cards. It gives opportunities for publishers like you to make your contents available in the market that you might not have exploited yet.

What is Smartebooks' benchmark? Our target are the existing subscribers of these telecommunication companies who already made their names big in the industry. A different approached and mode of payment other than credit cards and third party payment service center.

The publisher will decide on the designated price, books to distribute and distribution channel. Smartebooks will provide a contract and is open for any concerns to meet the publishers'.

We saw some of your books in Flipreads and we are interested to distribute it in Sun cellular estore this November 2013.

In this regard, I hope that we can meet for a discussion for this business and opportunities.
