Filipino komiks writer Galo Ador Jr., passed away on March 10 2008 of cardiac arrest. Galo was active in comics in the 90′s until Graphic Arts Service shut down, causing him to move to TV writing. Galo is best known as a TV writer who worked on Francisco V. Coching’s Pedro Penduko, Alpha Omega Girl, Kapitan Aksiyon, Agent X44 and many more during the last couple of years.
Galo is one of the founders of Back Door Publishing, an independent comic book company which released Dark Pages in 2002.
I was trying to see if I can find some of Galo’s work in my collection of comics, but since he worked mostly in the 90′s, an era where I only have very few comic books, I wasn’t able to find any. I’ve never met Galo, but this does affect me greatly, even as I learned about it belatedly. He was a younger man than I was, and it’s tragic he died so young. My sincere condolences to all his friends and family.
