Manila International Book Fair 2023!

It’s that time of the year again, folks! Manila International Book Fair is this coming Thursday to Sunday (September 14-17), and it’s being held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. Just like last year, #RomanceClass titles will be available at the KOMIKET/Secret HQ booth (Booth #75-76, #83-84) together with a whole lot of amazing graphic novels and komiks by Filipino creators.

Something to look forward to at this year’s MIBF is the launch of #RomanceClass and KOMIKET’s new imprint, Blush Books! The first batch of Blush Books are existing #RomanceClass titles which have been given a very special KOMIKET makeover. This means new illustrated covers and additional illustrations in the books’ inside pages. Do follow #RomanceClass on Instagram and/or TikTok to see the new covers! (2/3 have been revealed so far.)

The Blush Books official launch will be on Sunday, September 17, 6:30 pm at the stage area of the SMX Convention Center. Our live readers Gio Gahol, Rachel Coates, and Jade Albert will be reading excerpts from books by Brigitte Bautista, Danice Mae P. Sison, and Dawn Lanuza. Hope you can join us!

Here are some highlights from #AprilFeelsDay2023:
