Pugad Baboy Comics: Who can forget the illustrations and funny jokes?
Who can’t recognize this old cartoon? A legend that has made thousands of Pinoys smile everytime a special illustration appears in the morning newspaper. Who can forget Pugad Baboy when we talk about it. Those funny jokes and conversations being featured on a regular issue in the comic strip for this local newspaper in the Philippines.
Pugad Baboy jokes are all classics but up to now, many artists and illustrators still see it different. It has become both a legend and a history to look up to by them. Apart from this one, I can also recall another popular comic strip in the local newspaper and magazine. I’m talking about Larry Alcala’s “A Slice of Life”.
It has become a regular find for all of us 4, me, my younger brother, my one and only sister as well as our kuya Jowen. Larry Alcala is a genius for us. He makes up our day. He stimulates our imagination trying hard to find his big and sometimes small face in his works of art. What about you? What comic strip or illustration can you recall makes your day back in the 70’s?
