Translation: In lieu of the great contributions of the past Komiks industry to literacy and general knowledge, the Senate is proposing a bill to help revive the Philippine Komiks Industry.

In Senate Bill 1934 proposed by Senate President Manny Villar, it is explained that Komiks has had a major influence on local movies, radio plays, books, and TV shows as well.

  1. Finally! Some much-deserved support from the government. Kudos to Senator Villar for taking notice of the HUGE talent base the Philippines has to offer. Woohoo I hope this is the start of many more campaigns of support for our artists/creators!
