It feels good when I see the covers of the komiks of yesteryears. These were the komiks that taught me so many things, even reading! It was also this medium that made me dream to be one hell of a komiks artist one day. Though it just had to be fulfilled in my own personal way.

Great blog.

My family became instant Komiks addicts when we moved to the prov. W/ no other form of entertainment aside fr radio, my mother used to read loud the komiks & Liwayway while we sat around her & listen to the latest devt's. When deliveries of Komiks were delayed due to typhoons, I patiently waited for days our order of komiks w/c must have been stacked up bec we expect each by the day. I love the smell of new komiks. It's glorious!

I remember such komiks, kabayan! Everytime the family would go to Baguio via the Philippine Rabbit, komik vendors would try to sell their wares to passengers. And more often than not, people wud actually buy a copy or two because of the long hours sitting in the bus. Besides Hiwaga, there was also Wakasan komiks!

I can't remember what komiks Zuma is featured in...

I had been looking for any art work of my favorite Filipino comics illustrator MAR SANTANA. For me, he was simply the best! I hope to find one here someday. This site makes me nostalgic. I was once a "Komiks-addict" myself and what a liar am I if I will say that I can resist it when those comics become available in the market again!

My hero in Hiwaga komiks was Zott.
when i was a kid i was really hoping to see it in the big screen.
Hope someone in the movie industry take notice of Zott.

I remember it was in Aliwan Komiks that Anak ni Zuma was serialized. One of my favorites too. Who would forget Dino and Galema? And there was also Angkan ni Zum in Pinoy Klasik
