Liwayway, August 22, 2005

If you can, grab yourself a copy of this week's issue of Liwayway Magazine. It seems to be a major change of pace as showbiz stuff had been mostly done away with, replaced with features commemorating "Buwan ng Wika" (Language Month).

The cover features artwork by Jun Lofamia, reproduced uncropped inside. Other features include:

*Paggunita Kay Manuel Luis Quezon by Boy Silverio. A feature on the first Filipino president, born on August 19, 1878 ( Happy Birthday, sir!) and died August 1, 1944.

*Pahapyaw na Kasaysayan ng Wikang Pambansa ng Pilipinas. As the title indicates, a glancing view of the history of PILIPINO, the National Language of the Philippines.

*Features on prominent Filipino writers like Carlos Valdez Ronquillo and Efren R. Abueg.

*A feature on the Battle of Pinaglabanan

*A short history of Philippine Film, with spotlight on Charito Solis, Gloria Romero and Luis Gonzales.

*A short history of Liwayway Magazine. Interestingly, the magazine actually started out as a photo magazine called "Photo News" before transforming into Liwaway. Much mention has been made of the writers who gained prominence on the pages of the magazine, but it's disappointing that no mention at all of the remarkable comics and artists that regularly appeared on its pages since 1929.

Nevertheless, this issue features more of Jun Lofamia's gorgeous artwork, some of which are reproduced below.

Plus more watercolor comics from Hal Santiago, and other comics and illustrations by Nar Cantillo, Rod Lofamia, Pablo S. Gomez and Rico Rival, R.R. Marcelino and Abe Ocampo, Ricardo M. de Luna, Vic J. Poblete and Rudy Villanueva, Perry C. Mangilaya and Alfred C. Manuel and Mike de Leon.
