They also promote the independent and local artists despite being a foreign organizer not based in Manila. So it’s a big deal that beside the highlighted guests they also give the spotlight to the local scene namely the komiks community.

For those who have missed the first days and looking forward for the rest of APCC Manila this weekend here are some places you should see…

Creative Circle (Formerly Artist Alley)

What is Asia Pop without a ‘Comicon?’ IT IS mainly a comic convention that’s surrounded by other popular culture. The Creative Circle is where you find local creative artists from the Philippine komiks community.

This also features foreign guests promoting their original works not only from komiks, but other interesting things that might catch your attention in the next two days and there might be some surprises too.


Collectible Toys, Gaming, and Many More

There are brands from Bandai, LEGO, Magic the Gathering, and other interesting things to see over the weekend that you might get hooked. Bandai let’s you build your first Gundam kit and you can take it home for free how’s that sound?

How about you challenge one of the people at the Magic the Gathering booth and take home a half deck sample from them. Yes, you can have the experience playing Magic and the next thing you’ll know you’re trying to build a deck. All you need is someone who is into it and you don’t need to be hardcore about it.
