Manang Fishball in WWL

Here are 2 panels where you will see Manang Fishball, a character that was first appeared in my other komik, Yo, Bo! Well, she's here in Weather-Weather Lang for a small scene. I'll be using her in my other stories in the future.

I just love drawing her.

He made me happy, even I've not the review. But, just taking his time to do so just melted my heart. Thank you for the kind words, man.

Here's a preview:

A "Too" Boring Page

Last night, I also tried to make a draft page. When I compared it with the other pages, it seemed really too slow, too boring and too crappy.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: 'Weather-Weather Lang' Review by Komiks KritiKai

Today, I just tripped on an old review of Weather-Weather Lang. This review piece was done during the 24-Hour Comic Challenge, where I turned WWL as an entry. Fortunately, Erika Cruz of Komiks KritiKai was kind enough to write something about my entry. Thank you.

KC Cordero, well-known in the lokal komiks community, reviewed my work, GUTOM.

"Kung likot din lang naman sa mga anggulo ay meron naman si Norby, medyo kailangan pa lang talaga ng praktis sa drawing. Since Tagalog ang medium, maraming mali para sa isang old schooler na gaya ko na sanay sa mga kuwentong Tagalog. Ang sa akin..."
