2. Backgrounds of the literature in Region IV-A (Laguna)

Gerry Alanguilan
As a young man, Alanguilan studied to become an architect, but decided to turn his hobby of comic book
illustration into a career in order to be with his then-girlfriend. At first, much of Alanguilan's work in
comic was on conventional American superhero titles. His first self-written comic was Wasted.
Alanguilan at first intended the comic to be for himself and his friends to read, and was embarrassed by
the large amounts of violence and profanity in the title. Eventually Alanguilan allowed Wasted to be
published in the Philippines, and from there its popularity spread to the United States and put
Alanguilan on the independent comics map.
After Wasted, Alanguilan created several other titles which were published in several Filipino
publications, such as Johnny Balbona, Humanis Rex!, ELMER, Timawa and Where Bold Stars go to Die. He
also contributed to anthologies like Siglo: Freedom, Siglo: Passion and Filipino Komiks, all published in
the Philippines. His self-created titles have also attracted a fanbase all over the world, including comic
creators Neil Gaiman and Warren Ellis.
