Earlier today, I got news of a "copycat" character of Kawal, the comic I created a few years ago and debuted at SDCC. My immediate response was to just go in on the guy.
Thankfully, I was able to chat with the creator, @bobbyrubio, and we both came up with a positive solution: Once he gets off the ground with his project, “Kawal: Soldier of the People” and "Neighborhood Legend" are doing a crossover!!! This is about eliminating the Filipino "Crab Mentality" and working to find positive solutions. I am truly, truly excited about this aspect of my/our work. Nothing will be changed on either end and we will be joining our stories together so that it makes sense that we both cohabit the same world. We’ll both be doing this to bring up our respective brands and to combine as a unified Filipino-American front.
