Monstress Book Tour in Manila

Best Blogger Tips
Heya dearies! Do you like comics? For me, I started reading thanks to comics. I can vividly remember Archie, Betty and Veronica, and other Riverdale characters in my youth. Back then, if you have an Archie Double Digest, you were popular in school. Oh! I loved Richie Rich, too! 😃

Comics taught me the love for reading. Rich, colorful pages filled my youth. It is still true for now. I may have moved on to reading novels but once in a while, I still go back to my first love. Archie, Avatar the Last Airbender, and manga like Fullmetal Alchemist and Attack on Titan are just a few of what I usually read.

So, I really got excited when Fully Booked organized an event with comic book writer, Marjorie Liu. One of my 2019 goals was to go to a book signing event. It clicked right there! I decided to attend on February 10 in Fully Booked ATC. It was the third day, and I’m happy that they have that slot because it’s my only free time of the week.

I arrived at the location early because I expected a lot of people due to my previous book signing experience with Lang Leav back in 2016. But no, the crowd was manageable and the event was a cozy meet and greet.  


The venue at Fully Booked was very apt. I felt comfortable being surrounded by books. Other comics written by Marjorie Liu were on display, too! Han Solo. X-Men, Monstress... It was eye candy!

More comics! :D

It was my first time hearing of Monstress. When 
I saw it, the covers called out to me. Power. Pain. Monsters. People. Magic. Mystery. It was enough to convince me to buy the first volume. Gorgeous art encompasses the covers, showing the main character as a beautiful and strong heroine.

Marjorie Liu is an empowering woman. Her aura is welcoming. She’s very kind and beautiful. We had a chance to get to know her more at the Q&A part. She shared with us tips on becoming a writer and taught us the necessary attitude of being one.

After the Q&A was the book signing and photo op. I got to meet her up close. She smiled and shook my hand. I told her that I read comics and I’m excited to read Monstress. She talked with me as she signed my copy. And then we posed for a quick photo to remember this chance of a lifetime! 😃

I love how personalized this autograph is! :)

Marjorie’s talk inspired us to follow our dreams. To appreciate art and support comic book writers and artists. I’m happy that I decided to attend. It turned out more than just a book signing event, it became a life-changing one for me. Marjorie Liu has made an me instant fan and I look forward to more of her works, especially Monstress.
