Not too long after the Second World War ended in the pacific, the Philippines started producing comic books. Apart from a few movie theaters that cropped up around the country the Filipino comic books were the source of entertainment for the masses.
And from within the confines of those few comic book publishers came a band of artists to be recognized years later as the Golden Age of the Philippine comics. The names of the artists who started it all is endurably etched for that period. Francisco V. Coching, Nestor Redondo, Alfredo P. Alcala, Tony de Zuñida, Elpidio Torres, Clodualdo del Mundo, Noly Panaligan, Jesse F. Santos Ruben N. Yandoc Fred Alcantara, Jim Fernandez, Federico C. Javinal, Tony Caravana, Teny Henson and others.
