These hilarious online komiks shows the highs and lows of being Pinoy

May 23, 2021 0 comments


It’s no secret that the Philippines has no shortage of talented people. From singing to dancing, Filipinos have already proven their spot on the world stage. However, we are not only great singers and dancers, we are also creative as talented— just look at our Komikeros! 

Philippine komiks had gone along way since it was introduced decades ago. With beautifully illustrated comics that are either funny or insightful (often both), they’ve been entertaining thousands of Filipinos every day. (Some of which you’ve probably already seen and enjoyed!)

From hilarious and relatable, to serious, often socio-politically charged stories, this list of creators reminds us of both the highs and lows of being Pinoy.

Ardie Aquino 



Inspired by fantasy and sci-fi artwork and cartoons, Ardie Aquino’s comics are funny, relatable, and sometimes weird. (in a good way!) Ardie’s comics reminds Filipinos to embrace our more imaginative, and weirder sides.

 

 Beerkada Comics 



Drawn in a black-and-white, cartoony art style, Beerkada Comics puts pop-culture and fantastical elements into daily situations. Giving relatable, often mundane situations, some excitement!


 

 Crazy Jhenny 



Like most of the other entries on this list, Crazy Jhenny’s comics are very political in nature. With most of her content outright, criticizing the government. Contrasted with her colorful and cartoony art style, Jhenny brings both humor and maturity, to different issues in the Philippines.


 

 Hulyen 



With a simple, stylized artwork reminiscent of your notebook illustrations, Hulyen’s comics showcases the more introverted and weird side of Filipinos. Usually starring a dead-pan, cartoon version of herself, Hulyen’s comics remind us that even the so-called “weirdos” in our lives have a sense of humor and are just as funny as everyone else.

 

 Marianie 



Tonally darker when compared to other entries on this list, Marianie’s comics showcase her feelings and other struggles with high-contrast, neon-colored art. But despite the sometimes-depressing content of her work, she always ends her stories on a hopeful note.

 

Tarantadong Kalbo 



Funny, super political, and always up-to-date Tarantadong Kalbo’s comics wants to make his viewers laugh, and call out the government. He uses colorful and cartoony artwork to make his comics and opinions, appeal more to the common Filipino.




Filipino artists deserve so much more attention they’re currently having. Their fun, and diverse artwork is always a sight to see, and reminds their viewers of their important role in making the country a better place to live. Which artist would you be checking out first? Comment down below!
