Go, Read: Francisco V. Coching Profile

The Philippine Daily Inquirer has posted a nice, longish article on Francisco V. Coching, "the dean of the komiks industry" in their style section, using the late cartoonist's widow as a springboard. Coching led an interesting life; there's a story in there about a fake funeral that could have come straight out of a Joe Kubert war comic, and his career ended earlier than it might have in reaction to unappreciated political pressure. As per usual, the best supplementary reading on the artist comes at Gerry Alanguilan's site. It's worth a few minutes of your time if only to look at the art.

thanks to Gerry for the original article link
