This is in line with the exhibit of the same title, Panel Collective, at the Edge Gallery. The talk is scheduled on 15 May 2009 (Friday), 11:00 AM, at the Lobby of the Museum.

Calingo, David and Zamar worked for the Culture Crash Comics (CCCom), a bi-monthly comic anthology that featured anime-style stories and characters until the release of its last issue in 2004.

Meanwhile, Zamar, David and Tinio-Calingo continued the operation of their independent Point Zero Comics that publishes their titles Kubori Kikiam, Cresci Prophecies and Digmaang Salinlahi.
