“It’s always been like that in the comic-book industry… You change or you die.”

Sandy Sansolis’s words read cold but are expressed with forward-looking optimism. The founder of Filipino hobby hub Comic Odyssey will be closing the doors of their Taguig branch while opening new ones out into the world wide web.

As even the monumental Comic-Con took place online last week, local comic book retailers are now following suit. Leading the charge for Comic Odyssey is Kevin Chan, a long-time customer-turned-managing-director with a background in e-commerce.

This dynamic duo shares with us their experiences and predictions for positive growth in the Filpino hobbyist “shared universe.”
