Jesse Santos Dar Aguila Cover Pioneer Komiks, 1966
Jesse Santos was popular in the Philippines for illustrating two James Bond like characters DI-13 and Dar Aguila. Jesse was very innovative in his art style by incorporating washes in interior comics pages for the first time in Filipino comics (arguably).
Jesse eventually became popular in the US for illustrating the similar sounding "Dagar" for Gold Key Press.
