New Filipino comics TV series in GMA 7 for 2008

thanks to Raffy for informing us this great news!, Now I’m excited to see a cross over series of Darna and Captain Barbell.
I’m still thinking who will be the actors for Darna and Capt. Barbell. Also check out Robin Padilla as the Joaquin Buradado, the prison guy who turns his tattoo into living animals. its a big wow for 2008! another Pinoy comic classic on TV. Also Gilda Olvidado’s Babangon ako at Dudurugin kita turns now into a TV series along with other Mars Ravelo’s superhero comic Darna and Capt. Barbell. and lastly Carlo J. Caparas’ Joaquin Burdado.

In the future, I hope they can turn some of the Ramon Revilla’s classic movies into TV Series, thats one of my wishlist and yes I’ll be happy to watch those and collect it. or for a crazy idea, how about Gilbert Monsanto’s Digmaan ?

Hi Azrael

This is Raffy of the Official Darna Website.

Since this is a community for Pinoy Superhero fans, I just wanted to mention that GMA Network has released a teaser/trailer preview of 2 “Mars Ravelo Character” shows coming in 2008.

“Dyesebel” is coming and so is the eagerly anticipated “CAPTAIN BARBELL MEETS DARNA”. (Not the final title of the show. just a “working title” for now)

  2. Hi Again Azrael

    In addition to the news, i found out some additional comments regarding the “Captain Barbell Meets Darna” series.
    As far as we’re concerned, we have no information on the premise of the team-up series.

    I am mytified by an entry I found on “Captain Barbell meets Darna” on wikipedia. Apparently, someone (an insider perhaps? Or just an overzealous fan?) created a wikipedia entry claiming that Villains from both the solo Darna & Capt.Barbell series are going to be part of the cast.

    One rumor says (and I repeat- RUMOR) that actress Jean Garcia is to play the role of BRAGUDA, the Anomalkan Queen of the doomed Planet Marte. This Braguda (the source claims) is a younger version of the role due to the blood of virgins she has apparently consumed. (Creepy!!) A character supposedly from Capt. barbell called “Levi”, it claims, is to be played this time by Ariel Rivera instead of Patrick Garcia.

    Then the article says that a new character called “ATOMIKA”( a shapeshifter) will be introduced in the series and that this is a replacement for the “Darna” character of MOLECULA.

    Whether this “Atomika” chracter is the same character introduced in Mango Comics’ ‘Lastikman’ one-shot graphic novel by Gerry Alanguilan and Arnold Arre remains to be seen.

    I will update you guys on any additional information that I find out. Thanks for listening.

  5. hi RAFFY,

    ***Nope. We don’t know either. Only GMA knows.

    i am thinking of ehra madrigal because she’s so sexy.,

    may nbasa rin aq sa `net na c rhian ramos DAW ung ga2nap na darna.

    **I have no idea who those ladies are. Sorry.
    Kung sino man ang piliin nila, as long as she passes an audition at mukha siyang Darna and is athletic enough, I’m ok with whoever.

    thnx and more power.

  14. Darna Fans

    Do you ever wish that you had an opportunity to read the Original
    DARNA KOMIKS serial by Mars Ravelo & Illustrated by the Legendary
    Nestor Redondo?

    Do you hear stories from your Parents and Grandparents about just
    how different Philippine Comics were in the 1950’s? About how much
    better they were than the ones we remember from the 70’s and 80’s?
    Do you want to be able to travel back in time to witness all this?

    Well, you won’t need a Time Machine for that!!

    A very generous Pinoy Fansite owner is currently featuring the

    What and how was it like reading Darna the first time it appeared in
    the market in 1950? Readers that time intensely and eagerly followed
    the exploits of this new superhero. The komik serial, created by the
    great Mars Ravelo ran for 28 issues and those issues were vividly and
    expertly illustrated and executed by Nestor Redondo. From the pages of
    Pilipino Komiks, come and let us revisit and experience some of the
    highlights of this highly successful komik novel. For my succeeding
    blog entries, I’ll be featuring the following:

    #1. The Origin of Darna (Chapter 1)
    #2. The Birth of Valentina (Chapter 2)
    #3. The Young Valentina (Chapter 3)
    #4. The Evil Valentina (Chapter 4)
    #5. Darna Meets “The Kapre” (Chapter 17)
    #6. Darna Fights Valentina
    #7. The Death of Valentina

  16. Ang “KATREENA” comic-strips novel ay sinubaybayan nuon sa Philippine Daily Inquirer mula 1989 hanggang 2000 (11 years). Natatandaan nyo pa ba ang kwento ni “KATREENA”? Ang karakter nina Dr. Guiller, Rigor, Monang, Apen, Pomping at Alicia? May mga piling strips po ito sa website ng http://atfinale.multiply.com/. Ito ay sa panulat ni Joy Coniendo at dibuho nina Luciano Uyan at Edwin Uyan.
