Comic creators: get published in the Quarterly Bathroom Companion Comics Compendium!

The double sized premier issue of Quarterly Bathroom Companion Comics Compendium (110 pages, PH P 150) is now available in Sputnik Fantastik, Shop 60 Cubao Expo, Gen. Romulo Ave., Cubao, Q.C.

When I was first invited to contribute to the Compendium, I was excited. Someone thought my work was worth publishing! I needed to know more about who these people were and what kind of book or magazine my article was going into.

And to be honest, when I first saw the covers, I was surprised. Disappointed. Intrigued? Confused. Excited.

Here's Gerry Alanguilan's reaction, from his blog:

When this image appeared on Facebook, I was immediately impressed by the audacity of it. I thought, holy crap, is that what I think it is? Right between the eyes? Insane, these people.
The image is NSFW, so go to Gerry's blog if you want to see it.

This is not your typical comic book anthology. The komiks stories presented here are adult, scary, intimidating, filled with profanity, sex and violence. They are also intellectually stimulating and very well made. This is not a book for the easily offended or confused.

Among existing comics anthologies, it can be best compared to Negative Burn. Expect a diaspora of stories from creators of different styles and inclinations. All professional quality. Plus, they publish comics articles like this one and this.

If you have comics, or comics-related essays or critiques ready to be published, but don't have the resources to do it yourself, you can submit it to the Quarterly Bathroom Companion Comics Compendium for editorial review. They reserve the right to accept or reject work, but you will retain full ownership rights. Please bear in mind that all profits from each issue will be used to cover publication costs and fund the production of future issues.

Their guidelines are simple enough:

1) any theme/genre

2) size must be 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches, 300 dpi resolution

3) maximum of 10 pages

4) in Filipino or English

You can contact them through the official Facebook page here.
