Solo x Manix Abrera’s Kikomachine for Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series

The first time I heard about Kikomachine was from Krissy late last year. Apparently she is a huge fan and even lent me one of her comics. Just a few pages and I was laughing hysterically, I can't believe I just discovered him recently. For the uninitiated, here's a quick background on Kikomachine:  
Kikomachine is a comic strip showcasing the everyday life of your typical Pinoy featuring themes that are very common and relatable such as commuting, dating, college life and more. What makes them hilarious is that they are presented in an exaggerated manner, highlighting Pinoy trademark qualities as it goes along. 
As for the 8 main characters, they are a set of odd, lovable characters who are nameless but each with distinctive qualities such as the guy with the spiky hair, the girl with the shaved head, the guy with the glasses and goatee, and so on. Wondering how they refer to one another in the comic strip? They just simply call each other “pare”, “tsong” or “ano”. When asked why the characters he created are nameless, Manix said that he couldn’t think up of names, so he just left it as it is. 
Today, Kikomachine is compiled into 9 books and also appears daily in the comics section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer. With his growing fanbase and continuous support from his fans, Manix continues to strive making Filipinos laugh everyday with his talent through Kikomachine.
Good news for all Kikomachine fans out there, Solo has collaborated with Manix Abrera to bring you their newest Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia collection. Check out the designs below:

There will also be a meet & greet this Saturday:
