luckychan: (belle bookworm)
I'm back from Disneyland! Heeeee from our vacation, and would have posted sooner, but other RL responsibilities (I really, really hate having to deal with lost records and end-of-the-year clearances, they're such a chore) kept me away until now.

So hello, everyone, how have you all been?

Anyway, this is a long-delayed post for [personal profile] starlurker's project, Frequently (Or Not So Frequently) Asked Questions About The Philippines. [personal profile] littlebutfierce asked about Filipino comic books, so in this post I'm going to start talking about them.

I'm not sure if I qualify as a hardcore comic book fan or anything, but I've always loved reading comics, even before I got into manga and graphic novels, and I have a special place in my heart for the comic strips published on the daily newspaper. Whenever I read the paper (until now actually) I usually end up turning to the comics section first, because it's just the kind of pick-me-up I'd need to face the day ahead.

So part one of the FONSFAQ posts I now dedicate to these comic strips.

By the way, this is a wonderful site, from which I got some of the info on this post: Komiklopedia. Do check it out.

(I'll only be discussing at length three series since these are the ones I really followed over the years; but if you wish to know more about any other series you have heard of before, do say so in the comments and I can add them in a later post. Also, do comment if you want translations of the strips. :D)

Filipino Comic Books: Part 1. Rather image-heavy. )

That's all for the first part. Next time, I'll be talking about graphic novel series. Feel free to share your thoughts! :)
