Inspired by The Lost 100-Pagers and Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues, I've decided to create my own take on comic book covers. These will be all-original art illustrated by myself. Thank you and a good afternoon. Excelsior!

Eel Versus Spider

Time to showcase some Philippine comics characters! Palos (Eel) is a thief with a heart of gold, robbing from the bad guys to give to the needy. Gagamba (Spider) is a masked crimefighter in the vein of pulp characters like, well, The Spider. Both debuted in separate stories in the weekly anthology Tagalog Klasiks, co-created by brothers Virgilio and Nestor Redondo. Both were also very popular at the time (the '60s) and spawned numerous sequels and movies. Later on, both of them headlined their own titles (Palos Komiks and Gagamba Komiks), a rarity in the Philippines, where most titles are anthologies.
