The face of things to come from Arnold Arre.
The rather sinister image above was emailed to me by none other than Mr. Myth Class himself, Arnold Arre. It's a teaser for his upcoming comic project, which is his take on Pinoy superheroes. When I first saw the pic, the first thing that popped into my head was the Alagad ni Kalantiao TV series of long, long ago. It was a local series about a trio of motorcycle-riding, leather vest-wearing, baton-swinging, martial arts-kicking vigilantes sent out by the titular wise man/hermit to fight evil. I remember it only vaguely, but it was pretty cool at the time.
It will be a kick to see what Arnold has done to reimagine the title (since he, or specifically his better half Cyn, has more or less confirmed that I was correct in my assumption). The project has apparently been 3 years in the making- look for it to make another big splash in the local comics scene very soon.
UPDATE: Arnold's latest creation is apparently titled Andong Agimat, and will be released under his own Tala Studios (meaning, he's spending for it with his own money instead of a publishing house like Adarna). The gritty superhero/supernatural tale will concern the titular hero's search for the goddess Maria Makiling, who has apparently lost her memory and is now wandering a dangerous Metro Manila. Hmmm. Interesting. Veeery interesting. Wait for this one, very soon.
