“What makes ComicCon Asia ™ different is the great balance between international and Asian content,” says Pauline Laping, the event producer. “With the local Filipino audience very up- to-date with both American box-office hits and Japanese anime, for example, the Philippines is the best place to have a comic con that is uniquely Asian.”

ComicCon Asia ™ is produced by PSL Entertainment and Nam Entertainment Group, and is supported by Manny Pacquiao as the Philippines’ tourism ambassador. Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit Filipino men and women in uniform.
