The annual Philippine Komiks Convention, Komikon Grande 2018, is back to unite comic book artists, groups, and publishers in a two-day event on November 17 to 18, 2018 at Bayanihan Center, Pasig City.
On its 14th year, Komikon Grande 2018 continues to preserve its aim to bring together comic book enthusiasts from all over the country to disrupt the stereotypes, and broaden the scope of comics from international to the local scene, professional to amateur, and published to independent types of comics. It gives the opportunity for aspiring comic artists to present their talents, works, and services to the public. The event also targets to bring to people’s awareness of the current state of the Philippine comics industry.
