Pangasinan's finest comic book creators, collectively known as Pangalatoons, have teamed up to produce an anthology, "Sikami: Pangasinense Comic Book Anthology Volume 1" to be released at Saturday's Komikon. Sikami means "us" or "we" in their local dialect.
The book contains five stories by Bong Redila (PNR 2AM), Patrick Rawrr Enrique (They Call Her Death, I Call Her Destiny), Kevin Rusty Macaraeg (Alevosia), Mark Rosario (My Wife Is Pregnant) and Mel Casipit (Super Cheesy).
Sikami also features a special wrap-around cover by DC Comics artist Dexter Soy and pin-ups by Richard Peter David, Remar Khalid Ragudos, Bong Redila, and Macaraeg.
