Black Cat
Written and Illustrated by Ice Habunal

Naniniwala ka ba sa malas? Naaalala mo pa ba ang huling beses na umiwas ka sa itim na pusa?

Si Cat ay kilala bilang ang pinakamalas na tao sa lugar nila. At dahil dito ay tinagurian siyang “Black Cat.”

Lahat ng paraan ay ginawa na niya para mawala ang kanyang kamalasan, pero sa huli ay nabigo pa rin siya. Nawalan na ng pag-asa si Cat at naisipan niyang sumuko na lang hanggang sa nakilala niya si Remlas.

Meet Ice Habunal…

She was not an art student but Ice knew how to draw some manga illustrations. And it only started as her hobby. Her first illustrated work was Ang Babae sa Waiting Shed (published under SHORTCUTS) followed by a 60 pages project entitled Samantha, The Simple Fashionista. Ice is currently working outside the Philippines while doing some projects for Black Ink. When asked who inspired her to draw here’s what she says…

TRIVIA: Ice first applied as a writer but she was offered to apply as illustrator instead.

The artist who inspired me to draw was Yuu Watase. I’ve always loved Fushigi Yuugi, especially Ayashi No Ceres and that’s when I started copying her works. That was also when I started making my own comics in hopes that one day, I could be as good as her. At present, my biggest inspiration is Kagerou Usuba because her artworks are just so beautiful. Unfortunately, my manga collections are few since mahal ang mga ito. Iyong mga nabibili ko lang mostly ay iyong mga nasa Booksale. He-he.

Most of the mangas I read are shoujo pero nagbabasa din naman ako ng mga shounen mangas like Naruto and Tokyo Ghoul, pero mostly shoujos talaga. Iyong mga inaabangan kong titles ay Last Game at Fukumenkei Noise. May iba pa actually kaso nakakalimutan ko ang titles. Hu-hu. Recently, I was addicted with the shounen manhwa, Noblesse. Ang ganda kasi ng drawing style plus the story is very engaging and funny!

Samantha, The Simple Fashionista
Written by Claudine Erang
Illustrated by Ice Habunal

Alonzo likes Karen while Karen likes Zachary. Cool daw kasi ito. Kaya nagdesisyon si Alon na higitan ang “coolness” ni Zach. Pero mukhang mali ang ginawa ni Alon dahil imbes na magustuhan siya ni Karen ay lalo siya nitong inayawan. Ang malala pa, tinawag siya ni Karen na baduy at trying hard sa harap ng ibang mga estudyante.

Para makalimot sa heartache ay isinama si Alon ng mga kaibigan niya upang manood ng Transformation Day ng Lavinia’s Beauty Salon. Doon ay nakita niya ang schoolmate niyang si Samantha na kilala dahil sa pagiging fashionista. Nang tawagin siya ni Sam sa stage ay saka lang na-realize ni Alon na na-set up siya. Siya pala ang gagawan ng transformation!
