I am turning a year older tomorrow, and I spent my last day as a 28-year-old in today's Komiket held in Elements at Centris.
|My new favorite dress|
My main reason for going was to get my hands on the newest installment of Manix Abrera's Kikomachine Komix so I wouldn't have to hound my favorite bookstores if they already have a copy, and to also hopefully have it signed by him.
|Instead of the usual messages, Manix also left a special birthday doodle on my copy!|
I also came to support Vlad. He was supposed to just go and check out the event, but he also decided to sell his own comics, Shards, and the two-part origin stories of the three main characters.
|The Wolf, the Panda, and the Monkey|
I finished reading all the origin stories already as well as the first volume of Shards, and I liked it! Very promising and I'm excited to read the rest! Among the three, my favorite character is the Wolf because he's so mysterious. I wondered earlier whether I could coax Vlad into giving me clues as to what would happen next, but I figured it's better to find out myself when the next volumes are already available. (^～^)
Also saw some friends today!
I got home before it got dark. Enough time to buy my favorite milk tea and relax at home with my new comic books.
Exactly a year ago today, I had the #LegenwaitforitdaryKrissyParty. In contrast, today was pretty low-key and relaxed but still with things I love and people I like the company of. Not such a shabby way to say goodbye to 28, yes?
|Fellow April baby Mimai!|
Craft birthdate soon, please!
|My former officemate Thysz!|
|And, I was about to go home, another photo with Manix!|
