A GOOD laugh, comical perspectives on life and political caricatures as drawn by veteran and upcoming cartoonists are but some of the things in store for surfers who find their way into the Komiks.com web site (www.komiks.com)
It features an archive of classic professional comic strips as well as the works of budding students cartoonist in their school organs. The site also contains information on the works of the Samahan ng Kartonista sa Pilipinas, whose members who are mostly multi-awarded art directors, editorial cartoonists and fun-page cartoonists from major newspapers and magazines in the country.
"It's no secret that there are a lot of struggling but very talented Filipino cartoonists. Komiks.com was built so that local cartoonists will have additional exposure specially now that the services of gifted artists and illustrators are needed by print as well as Internet web designers," explains Ramon Canumay, president of Web Philippines, Inc., which maintains the site.
The web site also sees an audience in overseas Filipino workers who can keep in touch and forget their woes by rediscovering and enjoying the unique brand of Philippine wit and humor showcased in this site.
