Welcome to the Komiks Adocate!

Welcome to the Komiks Advocate! This blog is to help promote the making, distribution and selling of komiks.
Before WordPress, before Betamax, even before disco, komiks used to be such a big deal. From its origins in the 50s to its ‘death’ in the 90s, komiks had the pulse of Philippine popular culture. They did not just provide us popular characters like Darna and Lastikman. They also helped shape the forms of popular stories that informed our romance novels, TVs, and movies, which has continued to evolve today.
Komiks itself has not died out entirely.  It has, however, changed in form. From the mass appeal, mass manufactured, cheaply produced expendable distributed in newsstands, we now have independently produced, economics adjusted, niche works that delve in a variety of themes and styles.
If you are interested in komiks in any way, we would like to hear from you! If you make komiks now, irregardless of your professional level, please contact us so that we can interview you and help promote your work. If you are a komiks veteran, we would like to hear from you about your experience in the past komiks industry and your perspectives today. If you are a komiks fan, you can follow us to stay informed and also to share your opinions. If you want to get into making komiks but don’t know how, stay tuned as we will try to uncover the different aspects of producing and publishing your own komiks.
Please send all inquiries and feedback to
