As is apparent with this title, I expect people to read this post with an open mind, and with a little more scrutiny than simply a cursory glance. Because I will not be explaining anything. Read between the lines. Use a little of the old brain matter. I’m telling a story here, and a very important one for the Philippine Komiks Industry. If you cared at all about it, you need to read this. Click on each link IN ORDER and read each item completely. Miss not a single word or you won’t know the entire story. Here goes.

I will say that I am personally very happy that the Philippine Komiks industry is about to be revived, BIG TIME! That enough is cause for celebration. The masses that will enjoy these comics need not know how much blood was spilled to get these comics into their hands. Nor will they care, I suspect. I’m putting these down all here, just so those who are interested in it will know the truth.
