The Rain's Lesson

The rain gathers her children

to a wish for the sun’s colours… 135 more words

Can a part of Filipino culture come back to life?


Our trip today into Graphic Literature takes us to Komiks. We could venture back to days when pictures and words were put together and people now call them cartoons or comics or as I prefer, Graphic Literature, however I want to jump ahead maybe 30 or so years. 2,148 more words

A To Z Challenge-Comic Creators Around The World

Sueju Takeshi reblogged this on Takeshi's Flight and commented:

Comic books had been a crucial part of daily lives of many Filipinos before. I remember my parents telling me how expensive newly-released comic books were, but they told me that they were buying those secondhand ones in order to save around 90% of their budget. Moreover, just like in DC and Marvel comics, the stories narrated in Filipino comic books have been translated into movies; examples of which are Darna, Captain Barbell and Gagamboy. But, just like what is stated in this article, the culture slowly had been merely a part of the memories of our parents and grandparents. I am one of those hopeful that someday, Comic book series will be popular and will reign over bookstores again. I wish that our artists would support Patricio's wonderful aim. :)
