Celebrating the amazing talent and creativity found in Filipino comic book artistry, Apple Premium Reseller Beyond the Box has brought together some of the country's most respected and known comic artists to create a one-of-a-kind comic book compilation, the first in the Philippines made solely using the iPad Pro.

Comic book artists rely a lot on drawing and sketching. I truly admire their handwork and awesome skills! I can't even draw a Marvel character to save my life! Haha! Can Captain America still look good as a stick figure? >_< LOL! But kidding aside, these artists really push the limit!

To make it even so much better, Beyond the Box has chosen comic artists like Harvey Tolibao, Manix Abrera and Mervin Malonzo to take on the challenge to write and illustrate under the theme "beyond", as an ode to Beyond the Box as a brand that encourages pushing limits and exploring possibilities. :)
