It's a sad thing REX stopped publishing Komiks when I was hired at 1998. I would have loved writing for their komiks (even for the low rates).

holy crap. meron kayang dvd yang deadly fighters? i want to see 'the longest fight scene'....

I noticed all the theaters showing "Deadly Fighters" is in Quezon city or Manila city, not in Makati. I think in Makati they showed mostly all the Hollywood movies :)

Can you feature Filipino Funny Komiks?

To Vince,
Good observation. I think these were movies that the movie house operators in Makati thought were more for the masa. There were definitely more American/English movies in affluent neighborhoods like Makati and Greenhills, although I think Greenhills did find a balance also showing local blockbusters like: Bagets, Ninja Kids, and Weng Weng movies.

To Culture Shiok!,
Funny Komiks and MORE coming soon! Stay tuned!

Vince and NM,

Except ABC Cinema in GUadalupe (Makati). ABC was the only theatre that in my memory, always showed Tagalog movies in Makati.
We would go to this movie house with my Auntie to watch Rey Malonzo/Ramon Zamora Kung Fu movies and Nino Muhlach movies,too. Dun lang kami nakakapuslit sa Tagalog movies kasi kasama nga si Auntie. "Strict kasi ang parents ko!" elitist excuse...che!

I still remember this Rex Komiks. And nakakamiss yung mga Christmas issues ng mga komiks noon kasi ang gaganda ng mga kwento. Lalo pang nadadagdagan ang kulay ng Pasko.
