FLASH BOMBA Sketch


Here's a fan art sketch of FLASH BOMBA. Duy Tano introduced this old komiks character to me. At first, when I heard the name, I just thought that it would be a good comic title. And it was a name of an old komiks character. And I just thought, that this guy must be like a guerilla military superhero or something. Then Duy showed me a link. I was quite intrigued by him that I made a sketch.

Later, I realized that ABS-CBN, a local TV channel adapted him and turned into a min-live action series. I didn't have any knowledge of it coz I don't watch a lot of local TV. And I just don't like the"actor" playing FLASH BOMBA. Saw and used a Gilbert Monsanto sketch as a ref and I just drew on his old costume. Anyway, enjoy.

ABOUT FLASH BOMBA
Powers/Abilities: Flash has superhuman strength, the ability to walk up walls, to generate "thunderclaps" using his large hands or block almost anything with same. In spite of his enlarged extremities, Flash Bomba is not in the least clumsy, and is a skilled unarmed fighter. He can also mystically summon "devil horses" to create a stampede (similar to the way the ghosts did in Lord of the Rings 3).

History: Flash Bomba was man who lost the use of his legs in an accident. Because of this, he trained the rest of his body to an incredible level of athletic ability and did everyday stuff using his hands to compensate for the loss of his ability to walk. Eventually he heard a rumour about a "Tikbalang" (a mythological creature with the body of a man and the head of a horse) who would grant powers to anyone who could defeat it in battle. Flash Bomba challenged the Tikbalang and set a time and place for the battle. He defeated it despite his physical limitations and the Tikbalang granted him superpowers. But as a jest, the Tikbalang gave him powers that made him look awkward. Flash was given the Tikbalang's magic hair, said talisman allowing Flash to transform into his super-powered version - a being with large hands and feet, as well as superhuman powers. Using his new abilities, he became a crimefighter.

6th CAPTAIN'S LOG OF THE ENTERPRISE Volume 2: Aftermath KOMIKON

Komikon 2011 was busy and great. Non-stop people coming from entrance doors. Weather-Weather Lang was I guess a success, I only had one copy left when I checked after I got home. Prologue did a good job too. A lot of people still looking for Yo, Bo! #4. Not a lot of yuppies came in, but true people who read comics and interested in comics. So, far there were no reports of komiks stolen during the event. I just wish that the convention could've end at 9-10PM, or there would be an after-party or so.

Wanna say thanks to Sandy of Comic Odyssey for giving good deals. I got Spider-Woman: Agent of SWORD HC and Superman: Secret Identity TP. Duy, Danry, the gang of friemds and supporters were pure fun. But, I didn't get to out and shop a lot for more books. Things got really busy.

My prints and posters did a lot of good also. I sketched for some people also, like a Daredevil and a Wolverine.

My KOMIKON Price List


Here's my Komikon Price List. Preorder are now available, especially, sketches. I'll use a short 220-gsm specialty board paper with use of pencils and pens. Probably, I might need some image preference on the subject of the sketch.

For those who will buy my comic books/komiks, they will have an option to get a free quick sketch from me. In my new two titles, there is a free page for me to sketch. I will probably use crayons for it. For those who will buy my past titles, I'll probably use a short regular typewriting paper for the free sketch.

I will put a commission list in front of my table. See you then.

PROLOGUE Update: Soundtrack

Today, I decided to share the songs that  inspired me and while I was finishing PROLOGUE.


UNWRITTEN LAW - Save Me

 This song was originally meant for KAPRE ESPESYAL. But, I just thought, This song fits more to this one. I always love Unwritten Law. They're one of the bands that I've been listening to since I was 11. Hope you like the song. You can listen to it while reading the book.

PROLOGUE will be released this November 2011
