Top 10 Classic Pinoy Komiks Characters
SPOT.ph rounded up 10 of the most iconic characters from the Pinoy <em>komiks</em> scene.
(SPOT.ph) The Philippines once had a golden age of comic books, when komiks magasins were sold on every street corner and rented at sari-sari stores. It was the same era that spawned popular TV series like Dyesebel and Lastikman, and inspired movie makers to create blockbuster films like Panday, Zuma, and Darna. The other half of this list is made up of familiar characters that have become permanent fixtures in Pinoy pop culture because they were revived so many times-our immortal heroes. SPOT.ph rounded up 10 of the most iconic characters in the Pinoy komiks scene from decades past, some of which have admirably outlived their creators and are still around today.
