Back in the early 2000's, when I worked for Nautlius Comics, we'd hold comic reading events to promote our books. Essentially, we'd perform the comics out loud in front of an audience--like poetry reading, with comics.

Since last year, fellow comic artists Rob Cham and Apol Sta. Maria have brought the idea of comic readings back, holding them in various venues across the metro (primarily at Uno Morato, purveyor of fine local literature and cultural events). I had the honor of being invited to read once, and it came with the slightly-dubious and nerve-wracking honor of also being the one to draw and design the poster to promote the event. I suggested the subtitle, following the pun-filled non-sequitur tradition of past events, and used that as a springboard for the artwork. Because penguins!
