Pilipino Funny Komiks (1978-2004)

Pilipino Funny Komiks started me into collecting Tagalog komiks. Back in the 1970s, my father used to buy all sorts of Bugs Bunny and Batman comics being poorly reprinted by National Bookstore, hoping I could easily learn to read English. But I never liked reading them. In fact I have a bunch of them in my bookshelf now which I will gladly give away to anyone who will take care of them.

On the other hand, I liked Pilipino Funny Komiks because it is written in Tagalog, and I can easily relate with it. I feel lucky that our family did not have the habit of throwing away things. We just keep everything in our old bauls and bookshelves. Some of our collections have been destroyed due to frequent typhoons, but still most have survived. When I got a job in the late 1980s, I started augmenting our collection, trying to find the objects that were part of our childhood. And this included Pilipino Funny Komiks.

Pilipino Funny Komiks is a full color komiks first published in 1978 by Islas Filipinas Publications, Inc., a division of Atlas Publications, owned by Don Ramon Roces. Back then, Atlas was located at Scout Reyes Street, in Quezon City. (The company was later purchased by Mrs. Socorro Ramos of National Bookstore, and the company transferred to 20th Avenue in Cubao, just right across where I was living.)

For those who grew up reading Pilipino Funny Komiks, reading them now could bring echoes of nostalgia of the simpler days when children were just complacent reading a colored comic book, filled with beautiful stories about animal superheroes and endearing characters. Back then, there were no video games, internet, MP3, and home video. All we had then was a black and white television where we watch children's programs like Kuskos Balungos and Sesame Street.

And then appeared Pilipino Funny Komiks, which changed the way we Filipino children lived at that time. It was only a comic book, but it was still a comic book. And we loved it.

Let us travel back in time revisit those good old days by viewing once more the most endearingly memorable characters we grew up with in Pilipino Funny Komiks. Pilipino Funny Komiks was last published in 2004.. What I can show you now are the older copies I found in my komiks library.

It's good to be a child once in a while to momentarily escape the boredom of being grown-ups.

nice one! =)

I can't help but smile and reminisce.

I miss this one, I used to read this when I was younger.. like every issue, only if I have kept them properly, I must've have a lot in my collection.

I like all of the comic strips..

Reno said...

Are you really serious about the Bugs Bunny and Batman comics? I'd gladly take them if you don't want them. I rpomise to take good care of them. Seriously. :)

I guess most kids growing up in the 70s to 80s were weaned on Funny Komiks. Funny had it all that a kid wanted... humor, action, adventure... I remember drawing Superkat at the back of my notebooks when I was in Prep school!

Dennis Villegas said...

Hey Reno,
I'm serious, of course..However, the Batmans are already gone to another person who emailed me earlier. I'll give you the Bugs and the other 60s comics I have.

Dennis Villegas said...

P.S..email me your contact number :)

monsanto said...

Ganda talaga ng Funny komiks noon no? Tignan mo naman ang mga kulay, walang lampas at di pabago-bago ang kulay sa kada panel :)

Mahirap na yata pantayan ito.

Reno said...

Hi Dennis I have your cel number I'll contact you soon.

Thanks!

Hi Mr. Dennis

Wow, these pics give me the goosebumps. It seems like yesterday when I last read a copy. I am interested to buy an old copy of your Funny Komiks. I am an avid fan since 1984. Sadly, I was not able to save a copy after all these years.

Thanks a lot.

dexter said...

jun oribiana said...

i used to have the first 100 issues of this publication as my collection till my aunt sold it to the magbobote on morning.

dexter said...

dexter said...

sir dennis,please feature JIM FERNANDEZ and his great work ZUMA. i learned that it started in REX komiks,then got transferred to ALIWAN komiks,ang naabutan ko na was ANAK NI ZUMA sa aliwan. i also liked his other works like THE CANNIBAL,astrobal and ANGKAN NI ZUMA. cant forget this character called ANDRA from anak ni zuma,napugot ang ulo niya pero buhay pa rin siya,tsaka si KANDA na may mga ahas sa groin area. i forgot the name of ASTROBAL's love interest but i remember a character called ROGA na silvery ang bodysuit at kumikislap ang katawan.

Dennis Villegas said...

Thank you all for the nice comments guys. I'll let you know if I will sell a copy. Yiu know, this komiks is part of my childhood also, so it has a lot of sentimental value to me. It will be very hard to part with one copy even, but i will let you know if I change my mind.
All the komiks I feature here are from my own collection. Funny Komiks #7 (and some), has a mark of complimentary, because they were give-aways during Christmas. Our house was just near the publisher, and the unsold FK ones were given as gift to children in the area :)

froi said...

good evening po. my first time to view your blog. actually, i was just searching for a website for funny komiks for sale. i didn't realize that i wasn't alone with my thoughts. had the same experience with dexter (one of your viewers). had my collection ruined by a flood. so now i'm in search of someone who is willing to part with his or her collection. so wish me luck, and thanks for your time. and take care of your collection.

Chona said...

hi. does anyone remember the "pen-pal corner" of funny comics? sayang di ko natago yung issue kung saan ko nakita ang pangalan ng aking naging kabiyak. di pa uso ang internet or email noon. that was 19 years ago. we've been married for 6 years now and still going strong...salamat sa funny comics...at natutuwa kami dahil marami pa rin pala ang nakaka-appreciate ng filipino comics. maghahalungkat din kami ng aming baul... i'm sure na mention sa unang unang sulat ko kay mike kung anong issue ko nakita ang pangalan nya... and hopefully matulungan nyo kaming hanapin yung issue na yun.-chona (& michael)

Hello, nice article on Pilipino Funny Komiks. I just want to correct the timeline of Funny Komiks. Pilipino Funny Komiks ended it's publication on May 2005 not 2004. I was still buying Funny Komiks during that time. Afterwards, I heard the bad news of it's demise.

Richard said...

Hi Dennis, this is a very good article on Pilipino Funny Komiks. The first issue I bough was in the year 1984- it costs P1.50 at that time, and from my daily allowance of P5.00, I made sure that I have the money to buy one every week. I think they were the "pocket-sized komiks" at that time. I love the idiomatic expressions, vocabulary words, and This Is Your Page. I remember drawing Superdog and Bardagol at the back of my assignment notebook.
I miss my komiks...

bm said...

OMG! diba yan yung may "Eklok" ba yun? basta nareremember ko yan dati... grabe 18 pa lng ako pero may nostalgia moments na. parang nalungkot tuloy ako ngayon, ano ba tong blog mo kakainis :)

Coji said...

Hi, Dennis! Great site! I still remember the widely popular SuperKat. I also remember the short-lived series such as UFO Hunters, Eng Eng and Tiny Tom. I really miss them. Unfortunately, when we moved, most of my FK collection was left behind. Do you still have the Bugs Bunny comics? These are the black and white ones right? You can give them to me if you want and I will take care of them. Just e-mail me back. I have a sizable comics collection both Tagalog and English and would gladly take these treasures. Thanks!

Nag-search ko sa Google ng mga images mula sa pahina ng Funny Komiks at itong blog mo ang nasumpungan ko.

Halong lungkot ang saya ang naramdaman ko. Masaya kasi naalala ko ang kabataan ko at ang komiks na ito, lungkot dahil nalimot na ng panahon ang simpleng buhay noon.

haaayz hahahaha

Maraming maraming salamat sa iyo kabayan at sa blog entry mo na ito. hehehe this made my day

Wow! Thank you for reminding us. I wish I have a time machine to go back on the past. I do really enjoyed reading Tagalog komiks since i was a little kid. I'm already enjoying and aprreciate our simple life on that time. Me and my Mom/Dad used to buy it on the market near our house in Quezon City. Specially after school days and weekends.

But hey don't forget our very own children show! B A T I B O T ! ! !

Once again thank you for reminding me all this beautiful memories of my childhood.

this really brings back fond childhood memories. 1990's nung una akong magpabili sa nanay ko ng funny komiks bilang reward kasi naka 4th honors ako nung grade 1, tumigil lang kami sa pagbili ng funny komiks nung matapos na yung combatron. naala ko pa sina petit, matsusu, bardagol, haring matsungit, niknok, eklok, superblag, mr and mrs, tomas at kulas at marami pang iba...sana po meron pa kayong mga ibang scan lalo na ng combatron at super blag i badly need references for my fan arts....
nung lumipat kasi kmi ng bahay nawala na karamihan sa mga koleksyon ko

Michael said...

When I was a kid during the era of the 1980's I always asked my Mother to get me a copy of Pilipino Funny Komiks on local newsstands here in the Philippines. My Favorite characters are Superdog, Niknok, and Kalatao I even remembered buying it along with my Masters of the Universe action figure Moss Man it is also the end of their current character Superkat and the birth of a new character Superdog. I remembered my cousins current favorites are Superkat and Bing, Bam, Bung. I really missed that comic book it really reminds me of my childhood days I already bought their newest issue today their 2008 edition in Filbar's Comic Books Shop.

Oo nga noong bata din ako, Eh gustong gusto ko rin yung force one animax at yung combatron may kaklase nga ako na kinulekta nya yun hanggang sa fight to the death sila ni heavy metal...
Tapos yung planet op di apes ang galeng marami kang moral na matutunan e.g. kung san ka galing ehem ^_^.

Well iba na kasi ang komiks industry ngayon halos puro seryoso at kaseryosohan.

Haaayyy sana may mag remake ng funny komiks kung mag po poll lang dito eh ewan ko kung sino ang magiging sikat na karakter sa kanila. Pero ako combatron SOLID

Vash the stampede said...

sana ibalik ang combatron. ito kasi ang pinaka paborito ko. simula ng mahawakan ko ang funykomiks ay na adik na ako sa kabibili nito. natigil lang yun ng punitin ng nanay ko ung ibang komiks, nagalit kasi sya dahil lagi na lang komiks ang hawak ko. pero mula nun I learn my lesson! naglaan na talaga ako ng time for reading komiks. kaya mula nun nangolekta ulit ako. (no one can stop me hehehe!) Funny komiks is the best!

Sardonyx said...

Wow, my first time here in your different blog!!! Ohhhh My favorite was funny komiks! Can you scan each page of "this is you page" (hehehe kung makakalusot lang po) my 2 drawings were published in funny komiks and I kept those 2 copies for my souvenir. But for some reasons they got lost and until now I'm desperate to see my drawings in funny komiks. I remember it was published 1978 and it was bugs bunny yata tumatakbo (di ko alam bakit napunta si bugs bunny dun hahaha, basta rabbit sya) then yun second naman ibang year na yata yun pero si Mahimud Ali na ang drawing ko. I remember sa unang drawing ko may picture ko pa na nakalagay.

Siguro magkalapit barangay lang po tayo, taga Proj. 4 naman kami hehehe.

Paul John Lumawig said...

How nice! I was a big fan of Pilipino Funny Komiks. My favorite story there was "Adarmo Adarna"! I was like 4 or 5 then and I would imitate him. I even wanted to have a chick so it will become a giant chicken which will be my sidekick. Because of my admiration of the said story, I ate healthy foods like vegetables, rice and fish. My Mom used to tell me that if I do, I would become a strong kid who can fly. *sigh* I hope you can make a gallery of your collection of Pilipino Funny Komiks wherein we can read them. Don't worry, I'll be very careful. *LOL*

ARCHANGEL URIEL said...

Good day! Masaya ako dahil natagpuan ko itong site na ito. I was a big fan of funny komiks. ako po ay dating teacher sa isang private school dito sa amin sa bulacan sa ngayon naghinto ako sa pagtuturo dati na akong fan ng funny komiks kaya lang wala nang nagtitinda dito sa lugar namin kaya di na ako nkasubaybay.

Nais ko po ba mahingi ang email add o yung mga email add ng gumawa ng funny komiks. Ako po ay nagtuturo ng animation sa mga students ko kasi hilig ko gumawa ng anime at mga story about sa mga naiisip ko, masaya ako dahil natuturuan ko ang mga students ko kung paano gumawa ng anime sa computer at pagalawin ito kaya lang kulang kami sa facilities para makagawa ng talagang anime. Ang rami ko po idea and story na ginawa isa na nga po doon ung title ay Revelation, Kyme and the angelic sword, Element Monster, sword I the beginning, sword II the lost warrior and many more. lalo po ako na inspire mula ng ako po ay nagbasa ng funny komiks. Gagawa po ako ng web site para maipose ko po yung mga drawing and story ko. ito po friendster account ko: princeyurihcruz@yahoo.com add nyo nalang po ako.

Marami pong salamat sa pagkakataong ibinigay nyo!

hi, sa wakas na kita ko na rin ang site na ito. kasi matagal na rin akong naghahanap ng funny komiks. I start collecting nung 1983 (grade 3 ako) at nag-stop ako nung 1990 (after high school). Please Sir Dennis, kung papahintulutan nyo po ako na makuha ng kopya (kahit xerox) ng mga naipon nyong funny komiks. From 1978-1983 issue lang pa, yan kasi yung panahon na di ko pa sya nabasa. Kasi nung kabataan ko ay di ko naipon o naitabi yung mga komiks collection ko.

Eto po ang e-mail ko: wltadena@yahoo.com at cp #:09167920678 at sana ay mapagbigyan nyo ang munti kong kahilingan. Waiting for your postive response. God bless.

yobib said...

Back in my teens in the seminary in Tagbilaran, Bohol we'd buy a single copy of each issue of PFK and pass around the dormitory until everyone have read it. Btw, to make the passing around fast we'd read it in a batch of 3 to 4 persons. I hope someone can produce a scanned copy of all issues of PFK nad make available for download over the internet. Just a wishful thinking.

Mabuhay ang Filipino Culture! Ang sarap balikan ng kabataan natin. Ang Pilipino Funny Komiks ay naging malaking bahagi ng buhay bata ko noo. Naalala ko, kahit banana cue at turon ang merienda namin ng mga kapatid ko at nilagang kamote sa umaga, solb na basta me dala si Nanay na Funny Komiks galing sa palengke. Sarap basahin to pag umuulan, ewan ko pero iba ang feeling nung bata pa ako. Nasa Manila Bulletin na ako ngayon nagwowork, mas natutuwa ako pag nakikita ko si Ka Roni Santiago, naaalala ko kasi parati yung ginawa niya na Pupung sa PFK at hanggang ngayon ang KUYUG sa Tempo at Manila Bulletin. Sana magkaron kahit re issue lang ng PFK ng mga nagawa nung 80's! Sarap balikan ng kabataan. God bless us all.

Wow. I can't describe how good a feeling this blog entry brought me this morning! Funny Komiks does make me nostalgic. My grandfather used to buy me every issue. (I'm sure that they're still here somewhere in the house. It's just that they moved the boxes around when I lived in Manila for a couple of years)I still have the Amphibia, Niknok, and Lilit Bulilit centerfolds in my closet, though. Anyway, thanks for writing this, and kudos to your blog. :)

finally a glimpe of my favorite pinoy komiks. Sa komiks na ito natuto akong magbasa ng mabilis, suhol to ng nanay ko para wag na kami sumama sa palengke kapag Sabado with JELLYACE para me merienda, pauli-ulit ko tong binabasa kapag weekends at natuto rin akong magtipid para makabili nito. Nakakamiss sina Niknok at ang Planet of d eyps. My love for reading started with this komiks.

This is really a childhood invasion!
I remember one night, because one of my cousin let me borrow all the FK back issue since I started reading in the early 90's. In my euphoria, I still read even at night(Sino ba namang hindi matutuwa at maaddict kung halos 1 balikbayan pahiram sayo?LOL) and my caught me still reading and gave me a warning.By the next he caught me again. Ayun!matinding palo inabot and being banned from reading FK unless weekends.It's funny when your friends meetups and talk about the recent FK issue, laughing all day about planet opdi eyps, tomas en kulas etc. and what our own prediction for the next issue.

pwede pa kayang ipaduplicate ung mga may kopya nyan? sana maglabas ng isang buong libro taposnandun lahat ng issues.hehe.

james said...

wow! i still have with me my collection...although some got lost while i was growing up mostly because those borrowed were never returned...i remember i would cry whenever my mom would forget to buy me an issue...i simply stopped buying when i realized that the "komiks" was about to end...i realized this when niknok was replaced with eklok, and tomas en kulas were no longer funny...i missed those days when my cousins and i were scattered on the floor reading my collection...kudos, Sir!!!

Jayson Ragasa said...

Reading FK was once a old habit that was hard to break, a part of simple yet clean living during the 80s.. well, there is no way i can travel back in time..

hindi ko matiis hindi rin makapag post naalala ko pa talaga noon elementary ako iniipon ko iyong pera ko makabili lang ng funny komiks lalo na nung lumabas iyong Combatron mga project ko dati nilalagayan ko ng drawing ni combatron ! hayz nakakamiss talaga ang kabataan dati simpleng simple lang walang kaartehan.

Maglalaro ng Pinoy na laro tulad ng Patintero Habulan at marami pang iba tapos uuwi ng bahay magbabasa ng funny komiks.

everytime na uuwi ako galing sa school dito sa ParaƱaque dadaan talaga ako ng Palengke para bumili ng funny komik ang natatandaan ko every friday ang labas ng funny komiks.

May Funny Komiks pa ba? When I saw some of the issues, I remembered our own collection na nasunog sa old rented room namin sa Sampaloc, Manila noong 1997. I would like to buy some copies for my Grade Three pupils na matuto lalong magbasa...Thanks.

May nabibili bang copies sa National Book Store or sa newsstands?
