This blog brings back the nostalgic moment of Philippine’s Golden Age Comics. Looking back at the rich history of the Filipino comics tradition, this blog contains complete segment of “Unang Labas”.
Steve,Here's another example of a Coching-influenced illustrator. In fact your two other recent postings illustrated by Villegas-Ty and Escover were also Coching-influenced. There actually were many illustrators influenced by Coching which I never saw. Somehow they disappeared and all the Redondo-influenced artists took over and which lasted for a very long time. Wonder why this was so. Maybe Coching was harder to copy? Interesting.Rod
RodSince early 1970s wala na yatang ala coching type illustration na gumaya. Tama ka, Mahirap talagang gayahin. Galing ng recollection mo.Steve
RodDo you have a copy poster from our show sa galerie Dominique sa Iloilo. Early 80s ata yun. Kung wala i'll have it scan para sa yoSteve
Rod:Angel Martinez became a very good illustrator later (1970s). His style became his own and it had no vestiges whatsoever of what Steve has posted here. Like many komiks illustrators who copied Redondo and Coching, the moment they weaned themselves from their favorite masters, they found their own style, like in the case of Yandoc & Rodriguez who were obviously influenced by Coching in the early years of their careers but found their own style later.
Steve,Hindi mo yata nakuha yung sagot ko about the poster. Please do send me a scan. Thanks.JM,Hindi ko yata kilala si Angel Martinez. Yandoc and Rodriguez were probably the exception, most of the Redondo-type stylists could not get away from his brush style. Nebres was influenced by both, his layouts were Coching, but his rendering was Redondo.Rod
