Metro Comic Con CSB Edition

Just this wednesday, a seminar was held at our school. It presented different comic artists from the Philippines, be it in the international scene or in the local scene.

The said seminar was held at DLS-CSB's Green Room, at the School of Design and Arts Building. Most of the artists who came are from Marvel & Sketchpadmanila. :) Even the artist who made the Kikomachine (Manix Abrera) was present too. :D

It was really a huge thing for me so I decided to bring along my friend Elvin Neal with me so we could have our portfolios checked and criticized (plus bonus tour at my school XD).

Apparently, he was the 'only' guest there aside from the speakers themselves. LOL. Anyways, the speakers talked about how did they start in their field, from drawing ants and observing the people around them to making it in the comic scene. They also denied that the comic industry here in the Philippines have died ages ago. "It didn't die at all, its just the managing that made it weak. But overall, the comic industry of the Philippines have been thriving, up until now", says Heubert Khan Michael.

They also taught us how to make our portfolios in Marvel Way. :) Spearheaded by Heubert Khan Michael.

Here are the photos from the talk^^ enjoy!

Ragnarok ep. 12: Lighthalzen

Let me share you about my most favorite stories in Ragnarok. The story behind the Lighthalzen city and the Bio labs. Perhaps, it is the most wicked thing I've ever heard of in Ragnarok, using people as test subjects for their own good.

This is one of the main reasons why I am still playing Ragnarok Online. :) Not just a player but an adventurer and researcher. I love finding stuff and stories about the places in this game. ^_^

The following information are taken from Ragnarok PH


Five hundred years ago, Zenit Zerter Lighthal, one of the leading scientists at the time, founded the Lighthal Laboratory. The research facility is set on a remote valley in the Schwartzwald Republic . Later on, when the Rekenber Corporation gained ownership of the facility, they bought all the nearby villages and began construction of the great city known today as Lighthalzen.

The city-state of Lighthalzen is divided into two districts, the residential district on the south side of the city and the commercial district on the north side. The residential district's main attraction is the world-renowned Rekenber Hotel, located in the center of the district. The commercial district contains an airship landing strip, the Lighthalzen Bank, various trading posts, and the Alchemist Guild House. More importantly, it houses the Rekenber Corporation Headquarters.

The Rekenber Corporation is the biggest corporation in the Schwartzwald Republic . It is undeniably the driving force behind Lighthalzen, having great influence and responsibility over the city. The Corporation has spearheaded numerous researches and technological breakthroughs for years. These include the development of the Strahlenstein steam engine, which is being used for numerous tasks all throughout Schwartzwald, and the Airship, which has become a major form of interregional transportation in Midgard. But one of their most famous and controversial work is their research on the secrets of life, which resulted in the developme
nt of the Guardians � Midgard's first artificial life forms - said to be much stronger than any human being.


The city of Lighthalzen is nestled in between canyons and mountain ranges, and the terrain around it is rough and rocky. Despite of this, the Rekenber Corporation still invested large sums of money to build and establish the city. The investment paid off, since now Lighthalzen is regarded as the commercial center of the Schwartzwald Republic.


Underneath Lighthalzen is the Somatology Laboratory, where most of the Rekenber Corporation's Life Experimentation tests are conducted. The first level is the main research facility, where most of the mainstream researches are done. It has state of the art equipment and also houses accommodations for its resident scientists. The second level is a highly restricted area, where only a few are granted access. This area is dedicated to the more clandestine experiments involving the secrets of life. Here one can find the prison cells where test subjects are confined. The last level serves as a disposal site for the laboratory's hazardous waste materials. However, remains of human bodies from the Life Experimentation tests are also thrown in here. It is rumored that the vengeful spirits of these people haunt the place.


Underneath El Mes Plateau lie the ruins of the city of Juperos , an ancient but highly advanced civilization. Juperos is well protected by automated guards and security devices to prevent unauthorized entry to prohibited areas. Although many of Juno's scholars have their own speculations on the cause of the fall of such a technologically advanced race, no one is really sure what went wrong. One of the most popular theories is that Vesper Newton, a mad scientist conducting experiments with the famed Heart of Ymir has something to do with it.
