We will not have the pinoy comics we know of today if it were not for some of the pillars of the Philippine Komiks Industry. Francisco V. Coching was recognized as Philippine National Artist for Visual Arts last 2014 for mesmerizing his readers with fine fluid lines, dramatic compositions and unusual perspectives. Adding to that are plots simmering with action, adventure and fantasy that is rooted in our pinoy lore and legends.
