“Jest” Comic Book

July 24, 2018

Hiya!

I’m still currently developing the storyline of my next comic book but I’ll actually begin making this by November this year, 2018. The title of this comic book will be “Jest” unless I come up with something better. Here is a preview description of a part of it:

A family and their friends are mourning for the loss of the family’s father and they’re currently on the funeral wake. One of the funeral parlor’s staff talks to the family and tells them, “We’ve taken care of the casket and the embalming of your father and we would like to ask if you guys would also like to avail our other merchandise as we also sell moth’s, coffee, biscuits, playing cards, black t-shirts and other items related to your family’s needs on this funeral wake for your deceased, loved one.”

Here in the Philippines, most people who’re hosting a funeral wake would most often or not offer the people who are visiting the dead person with a cup of coffee and some biscuits while they stay up so late and they also play playing cards on the venue and wear black t-shirts as they are mourning for the loss of the person. Lastly, every time a moth appears to the person who lost someone, the elders would say that that moth is the dead person visiting the person he/she left behind.

I’ll also add something with substance this time around, not just silliness the Killer Kamote Komiks way as I’m going to poke fun a bit about colonialism, not just in the Philippines but in the whole world on this comic book. And also, about the colonizers of the Philippines, Spaniards gave Filipinos religion. I haven’t practiced my religion in years and I think I completely lost it. Americans gave Filipinos education and the Japanese gave Filipinos Dragon Ball Z, anime and manga. All those countries I mentioned left something good and bad to Philippines and Filipinos. I don’t hate any race or country in this world, though, but those were the bad times. There were a lot of war crimes that happened to Filipinos during those times of war. What if those wars of our forefathers in the past never happened and we all just got along? That’s all the info I can give for now.

Cheers.

Your friend,
