Filbars Co. & Inc.

I've been buying from Filbar's for like...man! Since 1985? This was during the time that drawing comics professionally was something I haven't even considered yet. In a way, Filbar's helped me appreciate comics more and so helped me decide to take this comics thing more seriously. I have to say Fil Barbasa, Filbar's owner, has such a remarkable memory. I remember meeting him only once at that time and when I returned a month or so later to his Cubao branch, he knew my name, where I went to school, where I lived. Amazing!

I'll be at the anniversary. I'll be hanging out all day starting from 10am until the place closes, I think. If you're going, please feel free to come on over and jam!
