Who Am I?

Hello! I am Gerry Alanguilan, known elsewhere as Doroteo Gerardo N. Alanguilan Jr., a Filipino comic book writer, artist and publisher. I’m an Architect by profession, and a member of the San Pablo Chapter of the United Architects of the Philippines. However, I prefer to be a storyteller through the creation of comic books.

I have written and/or drawn comics like Wasted, Timawa, Lastik-Man, Crest Hut Butt Shop, Johnny Balbona, Humanis Rex!, Where Bold Stars Go To Die and ELMER. The latter two I published from through my own Komikero Publishing. ELMER was eventually picked up by SLG Publishing for publication Internationally in 2010. Editions Ca Et La at the same time released a French Translation in Europe.

I have also been an inker of comics for DC, Marvel and Image, and I have worked with Leinil Francis Yu and Whilce Portacio on titles like Wolverine, X-men, X-Force, Superman, Batman, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Wetworks, Grifter, High Roads, Silent Dragon, Ultimate Avengers: Crime and Punishment, Superior and currently Ultimate Avengers Vs New Ultimates: Death of Spider-Man.

I have also adapted and illustrated various short stories by classic authors for Graphic Classics including “The Black Cat” by Edgar Allan Poe, “The Judge’s House” by Bram Stoker, “The Plague of Ghosts” by Rafael Sabatini and many more.

I’m also very interested in promoting and preserving the artwork created by the many great Filipino comics illustrators of our past. You can find galleries of artworks by the likes of Nestor Redondo, Alex Niño, Francisco V. Coching, Rudy Florese, Alfredo Alcala and many others at my Philippine Comics Art Museum Online.

For more info about me, visit my Main Site. You can view a portfolio of my work here.

And yes, this is also ME.

This journal is the one part of my site which I update on a regular basis. Formerly located here, this blog is now my new main journal, with that old one acting as an archive for my posts extending back to 1998.
