Book Haul: Komiket February 2018

In my last book haul post, I mentioned that I’ve mostly been buying ebooks since the year started. The exception to my rule of buying just ebooks is comics or graphic novels, and I bought a lot of them when I dropped by Komiket last weekend. Komiket is a weekend market where Filipino creators sell their comics and artwork like posters and stickers. Some of the comics are trad pubbed by local publishers while some are self-pubbed. Some are written in English, while others are in Filipino, or a mix of both. Some are printed in black and white while others are in full color. In general, it’s a great way to support Filipino artists so they can keep creating more of their work.

Sharing my Twitter thread, where I uploaded some photos while I was at the event:

I went with some friends although we did separate at one point so we could browse on our own. I was so tempted to buy stickers and artwork but I wanted to focus on comics as a priority, because there are so many good titles that I was interested in.

I had so much fun going around Komiket, browsing and choosing which titles to get. I would have loved to get more! While checking other people’s haul posts, I kept seeing titles that I want to try too. BUT! I still have a couple more comics in my TBR pile aside from the ones shown here, so I really should read the owns I one before I buy even more.

Do you guys read graphic novels or comics? What are some of your favorites?
