Filipino Manga Artists for OEL manga
Posted 6/4/08 , edited 12/23/08
I just found out that there are some Filipino manga artists that created some Original English language manga.
These are all genuine!



Destiny's Hand with art by Melvin Calingo

Ravenskull and Unearthly by Elmer Damaso

Mr. Grieves art by Jhomar Soriano

It is an OEL manga written and story by Amercians but art by professional Filipino manga artists who have won internationally... It is not a story created by Filipino but only the drawings.

What can you say?? can they make their own popular manga??

Agreed on that;

It's impossible for the financial part because wrong earned money goes to the wrong big pocket.(The word wrong is intended.)

yeah bigbosses just don't know that there are many otakus here in Philippines... I hope there will be one manga... though we have comics but it's a bit primitive... not into modern trend... and the story is just for little ones...

its very disappointing to see that people's talents are wasted because of lack of money...

i hope so.. this could be a revival of the komiks industry. we should support it so that the quality will improve and more will be available in the future

the drawing's nicely done.. but i guess if it were me, the genre probably matters to make those mangas a big hit on the market.. most readers nowadays want shoujo mangas.. well, that's what i think! XD

-sigh-

if we really do lack money then why am i seeing lots of comics selling in the streets? and those are locally made stuff, made by the guys here at home! you guys only think of money, money and money, why are those guys able to publish their comics by the ways? they lack money, but they were still able to pull it off. asking me of those comic titles? what about pupung? what about pugad baboy? i think those comics did not became famous all of a sudden, it took some time before those two comics become known. i don't believe that the author of the two comics have lots of money either. the problem with you guys is that you are too ambitious. dreams starts in small scale not large, you should keep in mind that these mangas become popular because there are many people liked it. and these mangas didn't start to become famous in a flash, it takes months or even more than months to actually sell these kind of stuff. you guys just lack patience, you want things to go as you wish them to be.

I couldn't forget Elmer Damaso since he once worked in Culture Crash Comics years ago. I loved his artwork on One Day, Isang Diwa and Cat's Trail. I hope he and more Filipino artists will be successful in the manga industry.

there are a LOT of talented filipino artists............. just look at Questor.........

...... on a side note, the Philippine comics when i used to read them a long time ago had very nice realistic art, and drawing realistically is harder..........
