Attended today’s comic book signing of Leinil Francis Yu and Gerry Alanguilan at the Galleria as part of the promotion of their latest work which is the Indestructible Hulk #1. If you have a copy of the comic book already, you would probably wonder why Sir Gerry is signing copies today; well, it was an oversight on Marvel’s part. Sir Gerry is the inker of this issue and the upcoming ones as well.
Both Sir Leinil and Sir Gerry are Filipinos. Leinil Yu has been known worldwide for his works with both Marvel and DC comics such as Wolverine #145, Fantastic four vol. 1, #600: “The Arc”, Superman: Birthright, limited series, #1-12 (with Mark Waid, 2003–04) and many more. Sir Gerry Alanguilan on the other hand has also worked with both Marvel & DC Comics, and has also launched some of his personal works such as Elmer, Where Bold Stars Go To Die and many more. He is also known worldwide.
But Mr Gerry Alanguilan has been popularly known by the ordinary Filipino not as the artist, but as a youtube sensation because of his video “Hey, Baby” which has gathered nearly 5 million views as of today. Here is the link of the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhuYIr1J1zc
Anyway, moving on. Had a lot of fun today despite the long wait. But is was all worth it. Both Leinil and Gerry signed my copies of the Indestructible Hulk #1 and my Hulk Hands which I personally asked for their permission on twitter. Thank you!
Here are some of the photos…
While waiting in line, I was actually pondering on whether to purchase the Spiderman or not (Yet). The Ilocano in me came out today. I did not purchase it; but I will…soon.
Lest I forget, I wish to thank this guy, Mr. Sandy Sansolis of Comic Odyssey. He is the reason why I have 2 regular copies of the Indestructible Hulk # 1. He will probably be my comic book guy from now on.
Here are some of my photos of Sir Gerry Alanguilan
Mr Alanguilan is a very nice guy. He is way thinner compared with the last time I saw him.

And of course Leinil Francis Yu
