Slice of 408. The title is an homage to the Dean of Filipino Comics Larry Alcala and his ‘Slice of Life’ illustrations that ran from the 80s until (and beyond) his death. He, like any other aspiring Filipino artist, is the inspiration and the bar to reach to.

A Slice of 408 is my way of transitioning my creator-owned characters Alex, Charlie and Joey from pin-up to comic book. I still got a long way to go, but making strips I felt is a nice start.

Hopefully, I intend to make the leap from this to a full blown graphic novel exploring more elaborate story lines and adventures from the girls of 408. In order for me to do so, I have set up a Patreon page where those like you who enjoy the adventures of these three young women can help keep this site going.

I do hope you can spare the price of a cup of coffee each month to help me keep this site going.

Thank you for all the support.
