I met one of my favorite inker/penciller in the whole world of comics at the Vinyl + Splash event a couple of months ago at Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street. His notable works? New Avengers, Silent Dragon, X-Men (Vol.2) and of course, Superman: Birthright! Everyone, meet Leinil Yu! And no, he's not a girl.

Same as Sanya Smith, we got to talk about my Instax Mini 50s. He even told me that I take good photos. Aww… Wait, I'm a fan! Does it mean he was just being nice? Hmm… Sad story though, I was eyeing this whole set of Superman: Birthright that one of the participating sponsor was selling that day. Told them that I'll buy it once I get back (from lunch). End of sad story short, they sold it to another person. They didn't think that I was serious! I was planning to have Yu sign each and every copy of the Birthright set. Fortunately, I have my Instax Mini with me that day. Happy ending: I didn't just got the chance to Instax him but also had him sign my photo of his work (Wolverine) which he did on the spot that day!

Wait, did I mention that he's Filipino? Yeah, I'm inspired and proud that he is!
