Liwaway, August 23, 2004

Hey, has anyone been checking out Liwayway lately? I've already added it to my weekly newspaper subscription. The issues are starting to kick ass, artwise. Here are some scans from the latest issue:

Jun Lofamia
LOVE HURTS short story by Gilda Olvidado

Rod Lofamia
CALIMUGTONG: Ang Kayumangging Mandirigma written by Reynaldo Duque

Jun Lofamia has been consistently good ever since he started working decades ago, but this is the first time I've really seen Rod Lofamia's work head on. It looks really good, a whole lot better than a lot of what the magazine has had to offer in its comics section for quite a while.

"CALIMUGTONG". Ang cool pa nung name. Astig na astig.

This issue marks the beginning of "Calimugtong" and "Si Piolo at si Lorelei" by Ruben Marcelino and Jun Lofamia so if you wish to start collecting, THIS is the best issue to start with. Better get it quick though because next week there will be a new issue and it will be more difficult to get this one.

This week's cover is of Rufa Mae Quinto.
