Komiks.ph

Yet another one of our projects, which we hope to be the central source for comics in the Philippines, has launched last June 18. If you’re a comic artist, you can get free blog hosting at Komiks.ph. Yes, free.

We’ve been lazily planning for it for the past couple of months but suddenly set a deadline when the ToyCon came. (There Garro picked up a bunch of indie komiks to feature on the website.)

This was the first time I put my Adobe CS3 to the test. And not just Photoshop, but Flash. I’m not a Flash expert, mind you. I struggled a bit with getting it to load URLs, and the fact that we made no less than a dozen minor revisions to the site design did not help. It meant opening up these two programs too often for my own good. Importing PSD layers into Flash was good, but would’ve been better if transparencies were retained.

Nevertheless, I think we did a pretty good job with the design.

Ay! Oo nga pala, ang nilalaman ng header image namin ay mga anyo nila Captain Barbell, Darna, Polgas, Lastikman, at Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah. Mga bayaning nakatatak na sa kamalayan ng Filipino Comics.

Pero pansinin niyo rin iyong ibang mga lumilipad kasama nila. Sino sa tingin ninyo ang mga iyan? Ang Justice League? Ang X-Men?

Hindi noh.

Kayo yan.

Ikaw yan.

Tayo yan.

Mga Pilipinong lumilipad. Kahit mejo cheesy ang dating, hindi ba ang gandang isipin noon? ^_^

Ito ang Komiks.ph.

Welcome to Komiks.ph!

The concept is golden, is it not?

There’s still much to be done—write new posts more often, get more people to host, set up a directory for comic creators, and promote the website. But we’ll get there.

  1. Mia, for some reason na-delete comment mo. I’m reposting it:

    Congrats congrats! It looks very good.

    (The image you included in your post can read “Komiksoph” — haha. Naaliw ako.)

    Thanks!! ^_^

  2. Haha I’m reading a lot of articles about komiks.ph lately :)

    But hey, good job on the design. It’s really “komik-ish” (err comical? hehe). It’s a good opportunity for you to learn and be an expert in flash as well. Good luck :D
