Since the 1920’s, the rise and popularity of Komiks in the Philippines has been sporadic, but one thing that remained was its appeal to children and adults alike. Over the years, different genres have been introduced and recently Indie Komiks started a new following. Although the younger generation is not familiar with authentic Filipino Comics, the more popular styles like Western and, of course, Manga, have continuously provided entertainment to our youth.
Being great storytellers, we Filipinos have the innate ability to create Comics. It is a creative way to express our feelings and an engaging way to communicate our message. From newspaper editorials to full color magazines and digital comic types, the art of comics is definitely here to stay.
