What is Penlab?

Pinoy komiks in one place.


Penlab.ink is an online reader platform exclusively for Pinoy komiks. Founded by creative content  group Kalabaw Kolektib, Penlab is a community initiative done in collaboration with many other local komiks creators.


While Pinoy komiks have definitely built a steady niche and a strong community amongst regular attendees of local comic conventions like Komikon and Komiket, a strong online presence could cater to those who can’t access these spaces and events.


Through Penlab, we hope to create an open and inclusive digital space for both komiks creators and enthusiasts. Readers now have the opportunity to find their favorites and discover new ones–all for free. FIilipino komiks creators now also have the opportunity to share their works with a larger audience, publishing both print and web komiks on our site free of charge. Our website hopes to develop a space where the entire community can do what we do best: create, read, and share komiks.


As content consumption moves to digital, Penlab aims to provide an avenue for komiks creators and readers to connect better. At the heart of it, Penlab is a community project made by komikeros for komikeros. While our main focus is digital, we also hope to complement print production to better support our creators.


Penlab is the go-to place to celebrate Filipino works. All komiks content on our site are curated, but we embrace all styles and genres of komiks–as long as they’re created by Filipino creators. It’s our own special space on the Internet.


Penlab is our new digital home.
