Filpino Komiks

Do you remember the last time you’ve read a true Filipino Komiks? The classic Kenkoy, the works of Mars Ravelo, or the comic strip in newspapers. Nowadays, you can find them on the net through the websites created by ambitious groups of Filipinos who want to offer komiks to modern readers.

The third and the latest to enter the online comic scene for Filipinos. Originally an online store for digital and print-on-demand komiks, now they’ve added a free, online self-publishing platform so creators can cover all areas.

Though they just started, you can already read of a handful of komiks to satisfy your cravings and we can expect more soon. Read their komiks here!

It is great that more Filipinos now are starting to appreciate an art form to which many would say before is “dying”, but alas, not anymore! Thanks to WebKom, Penlab, and KomikSpot for revitalizing the local comics scene.

It might take a while but we are hopeful that Filipino Komiks will achieve the same level of readership, respect, and adaptation given to Japanese Manga, Korean Manwha or Webtoons, and American Comics (Marvel/DC/Dark Horse, etc.)
