Apologies to the classic Filipino 75 cents comics of the 70s and 80s, but here is one Pinoy Komiks you would love.
Gerry Alanguilan (If you don't know him read his resume and weep) has a website that I've been salivating for a long time.
Think X-Men, X-force, Wolverine, and alamat comics to name a few. His detailed strokes are a testament to art as craft and the grit that is the excellence of an artist.
It is cliché to mention that his art is a testament to how good a Filipino can be, for his art is after all both Filipino and great at the same time.
His website is a comprehensive depot of his art, current projects, links and pictures, etc. Check it out @ komikero.com

Are you into comic book soundtracks? Alamat Comics' graphic novel called Baylans features breathtaking underground music by Bacolod-based electro-cash duo foodshelter&clothing.

The last one I gad was Stone. It has been a long time since I have the chance to listen to comic book soundtracks. Indie groups however, remain appealing to my taste. The rawness of the sound is the same quality that says, "ah... unadulterated art".
That's what I dig most.
