A born storyteller with a flair for the dramatic, a selftaught illustrator who schooled his genius with discipline and hard work, Francisco V. Coching created komiks that transformed ordinary lives into vivid adventures. He nurtured a generation of readers who found in his stories not fleeting fantasies or escapist romance, but a world where they loomed large as the makers of their fate and the tellers of their tales. Coching’s singular artistry is illuminated with komiks excerpts, covers, character sketches and illustrations, alongside essays that weave biographical detail and discussions of his work into a concise narrative.

The book focuses on Coching’s key themes while offering a scholarly look at the uniquely Philippine artistic phenomenon that is komiks, placing the popular graphic tradition in the pantheon of great Filipino art.
