    This anthology of the best Philippine comics for 2014 is a handy reference guide; especially for those who want to sample the vibrant independent Philippine comics scene. One no longer has to hunt down those pamphlets, some of which are little more than pieces of copy paper folded in half and stapled. One could have a taste of some of the best sequential storytelling in one volume. This is a great idea to bring these works to a larger audience because otherwise, most of these would only be expos This anthology of the best Philippine comics for 2014 is a handy reference guide; especially for those who want to sample the vibrant independent Philippine comics scene. One no longer has to hunt down those pamphlets, some of which are little more than pieces of copy paper folded in half and stapled. One could have a taste of some of the best sequential storytelling in one volume. This is a great idea to bring these works to a larger audience because otherwise, most of these would only be exposed to fan who frequent the Komikon scene. Especially Dead Balagtas, a webcomic that gives a humorous slant of Philippine history. Seriously, it needs to be collected in print. Still, there is still a lot of room for improvement. First, how could the editors of this book call it "The Best Philippine Komiks 2014"? Unless I am mistaken, I don't see any work from creators outside Luzon. Second, it seems that this collection has a lot of previews of graphic novels published by Visprint, which is also the publisher of Abangan. It's like a primer for their titles only. I could go on and nitpick but those two are my main concerns. I am confident, that the editors will rectify this in a new edition of new sequential tales. It is not bad for a first time.

    Oks lang. Pero parang misleading lang na sabihing "Best" na ang mga gawa dito. Parang ganito lang ang lebel ng pinakamaganda sa komiks scene (though 2014 pa 'to) kahit pa sandamakmak ang mas okay kaysa sa mga napasama dito. Gets ko naman disclaimer at point ng editors sa intro, pero nakakadismaya lang. At tama ba ako na puro magkakaibigan (o at least higit sa magkakakilala lang personally) ang mga contributors dito? Tapos sila na ang best para sa editors na kaibigan din nila? Hmm.... Siguro hindi Oks lang. Pero parang misleading lang na sabihing "Best" na ang mga gawa dito.

Siguro hindi lang nagpasa sa kanila yung ibang aktibo (o kahit hindi pero magaling) sa eksena, o ayaw talagang mapasama sa kanila.

    A few of these I was already familiar with and already following, but most are new and I'm wondering now where the hell they could have been sold and how come I've never heard of? Medyo nitpicky lang, pero may typo at grammatical errors 'yung iba. Not that I look down on people na halatang ESL--since hello, ESL din ako!--pero minsan kasi feeling ko trying hard na at medyo cringe-inducing. May kuwento pa na sobrang idol ng bida sina Hitler at Marcos. Like, to each his own and all that jazz, pero..

May kuwento pa na sobrang idol ng bida sina Hitler at Marcos. Like, to each his own and all that jazz, pero... hindi masyadong sensitive, is it? Not sure what it wants to say, but it's really giving me some negative vibes. Ganda pa naman ng art style.

    Let's be honest here, half of these titles here I know. The other half of it, I didn't know existed. And frankly that's quite a disappointment really. I could have been reading a bunch of great local comics for the past few years, think about it! I'm off to hunt most of the titles I stumbled upon here now. Obviously, those one's which I'm not familiar of. See you. Let's be honest here, half of these titles here I know. The other half of it, I didn't know existed.

    There were some exceptional ones (ie. Trese, Diwata, 66 which deserve 5 stars), there were forgettable/so-so ones (which I will not name), and then there ones that have completely wasted my time.

    I liked only half of the collection. Pero ayos lang. Ang importante buhay ang Pinoy komiks. At dapat sinusuportahan natin to. So bili na! ^^

    I love the compilations of comics and stories that was worth every peso I spent for this book. Some of the excerpts made me want for more! Definitely a great addition to my shelf.
