well, i just had an epiphany.

All of the best American comic book artists were imported from the Philippines! I had to take a class before anyone told me!  WTHell!  America is so insidious.  Here i am trying to think of non-american artists to do a report and i can only think of one (because he has recently been doing American comics).  Then i find out that almost every really good “american style” (. . .) artists came from some Schenectady island.

Alfredo Alcala, Tony DeZuniga, Alex Nino, Nestor Redondo, Gerry Talaoc, check it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Filipino_komik_artists#Philippines See how many names you recognize.

Oh, and i thought of another foreigner that i like.  I ordered something he did when i was a teenager (i’m 32) and i always suspected my mom threw it out.  Of course now almost all of Milo Manara‘s stuff is expensive as hell to get.  (I had the first Click)

  1. Great Taste Justis! I’m a GIANT fan of the Filipino komiks history and all the names you mentioned. I’ve got a lot of good reading for you when we get there. There is one good websites listed on our shared resource list: http://gerry.alanguilan.com/
    Gerry Alanguilan has a museum up there that has all the greats and tons of stuff.

    Awesome stuff.
