I learned Tagalog by reading komiks as a child. Unfortunately, the komiks industry in the Philippines is now practically dead. It’s a good thing that some people are preserving the art through their websites and blogs. The artworks below are courtesy of this website owned by Gerry Alanguilan.
Turns out that that in the 1950s, Hiwaga Komiks serialized a story about an Ifugao warrior.
It must have been very popular because a movie adaptation (poster below) was made while the komiks version was still being serialized.
