Gabriel de Jesus Atienza’s “Deputy Dodgers: The Ulstran Saga” was launched at the Summer Komikon 2012 at the Bayanihan Convention Center, Unilab Compound, Mandaluyong City last 26 May 2012.

Komikon, short for Philippine Komiks Convention, is an annual event promoting the awareness and reading of past and present comics made by Filipino artists. The event showcases recent graphic novels made by local comic creators, using various styles of drawing encompassing numerous genres.

Author Gabby Atienza, who describes himself as a middle-aged autistic, worked almost three years with digital artists and other experts in graphic arts to streamline this much awaited limited edition, hard-bound and 300 pager graphic novel.

"Deputy Dodgers: The Ulstran Saga" is reminiscent of Japanese anime characters from Voltes V, Mazinger Z and Daimos characters from the ‘80s, to which he credits to his own fantasy world. The book is Gabby’s fantasy world of science fiction, action and comedy all rolled into one.

Grab your copy of "Deputy Dogders: The Ulstran Saga” together with Gabby’s biography “My Life as a Comic Book”. Contact Gabby Atienza at (0916) 316.2650.
