Good to see that Pinoy Komiks characters are now being introduced to the modern youth in a form of tv series. I just love what ABS CBN is doing for our old komiks characters.

Ang Panday – movie for 2009

Starring Ramon ‘Bong’ Revilla Jr.
Direction: Mac Alejandre and Rico Gutierrez

My friend Jori saw the teaser trailer in the cinema, and I just can’t believe myself that they will be producing a remake of Ang Panday, then YouTube answered all my questions.

Above is the teaser trailer of a new revamp (or re-issue or modern take) for the classic comics and movie “Ang Panday” which FPJ originally fill its boots as the first Panday ( blacksmith). But after the death of the action king FPJ, another actor inherits the mighty sword and that is Bong Revilla Jr. I remember that I watched the last (and good one) movie of the Panday movie series, starring Bong for the movie “Dugo ng Panday”, I just forgot his characters back then.. But now, here in the 2009 remake, looks like Bong will be playing the main Panday / character of Flavio.

The teaser trailer looks good, kinda Dragon ball Z-ish ahhaha. Hope they can bring a kick ass villain like Lizardo, the aliens, zombies, and many more. and ohhh. I’m expect a good CGI effect here, hope more great than Resiklo and Exodus.

Im a big Panday fan, so I will be waiting for its development.

if you like to see the 1st classic movie, just view it below.

Whilce Portacio message to pinoy komikeros

This is a video message from Whilce Portacio for all pinoy komikeros, comic artist, writers, creators and to indie comic publishers. This video was aired on stage last June 2008’s 7th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention, it was played after the panel discussion talk with the Filipino comic creators on stage, the panelist were Gilbert Monsanto, Taga Ilog, Taga Kanal, Jon Zamar and many more.

He gave a comment on Filipino komiks, some tips and advice on how to break into international comics scenes and some news about his new project and plans for 2009.

Next week will be the Komikon and this is my little contribution to everyone for proving an interview or video message from international comic creators, and glad that Mr. Portacio is game for a video message for us, at least he is present via online and we feel that he is really at our local convention.

The tv series trailer of Varga is now available on the net and in this trailer we see that Mariel Rodriguez is wearing the costume of Varga, but it looks like that costume is a lot more different than the comics.
