Thanks to the first International Read Comics in Public Day, Eli has the perfect excuse to display his geekiness to everyone!

We start the day off with Josel Nicolas’ El Bimbo Variations at the LRT.

Feeling famished, Eli heads to an SM food court to enjoy Gerry Alanguilan’s ELMER.

Not wasting this bright(est) day, Eli heads to a local park for some Bayan Knights action by Gilbert Monsanto, et al!

While passing by the Makati Central Business District, Eli enjoys bits from Hazel Manzano’s Callwork: A Call Center Life.

A bus ride can take ages so there’s time for Arnold Arre’s Andong Agimat!

A quick pit stop to Planet X Comics Shop Glorietta, where WIPCOMICS was born (*cough*shamelessplug*cough), satiates Eli’s craving for other comics! 

The local fast food chain Jollibee serves as the perfect backdrop for Macoy Tan’s Ang Maskot!

The nightlife isn't complete without a little TRESE mystery or two by Budjette Tan and Ka-Jo Baldisimo. 

A jeep ride home later, the day is done, son! Seeya next year! Hoo!
