Written in contemporary street-version of Tagalog, this is a very funny book. I laughed out loud in several of its scenes. This is not a graphic novel but just a compilation of funny or sometimes mundane scenes of school life of Filipinos in a middle-class college. I heard some of those jokes before but I was totally amazed by the drawings particularly of that bespectacled young man (see the cover) when he is hysterical or angry. His eyes bulge, his mouth widely open showing each one of his teet ...more

(A Tagalog Review)

RATING: ASTEEG!

Ang Kikomachine Komix ay compilation ng mga comic strips mula sa Philippine Daily Inquirer na likha ni Manix Abrera. Storya ito ng magkakaibigang estudyante sa UP. Minsan korny, minsan cheesy, may pagka-politikal din pero lahat ay maaring hango sa tunay na buhay. Payak ang pagkakalikha, pero makukuha mo na kaagad ang gustong ipahiwatig sa bawat frame. Mga simpleng senaryo tulad ng pagsakay sa jeep, pagkain ng isaw, pagrereview, peer pressure at iba pa na nilagyan

I really like how these comic strips are now compiled on books. I used to cut these strips from the newspapers before. Manix tackles the usual happenings and stories that Filipinos can relate into. The characters and topics are very entertaining, and even the simple lines can make me crack.

Kiko Machine Blg.1 --- Rakenrol! Astig talaga si Manix. Punong puno ng angst, hindi mauubusan ng kalokohan, bibigyan ka ng ordinaryong komix na may extra-ordinaryong kahulugan.


Pangalawang komix ni Manix na nabasa ko(12 yung nauna) , pero unang komix na nabili ko. Masasabi kong hindi nasayang ang pera ko, hindi rin naman nasayang ang oras ko sa pagbabasa. Akala ko kapag komix mas mabilis basahin kesa sa mga nobela, yun pala mas matagal tapusin ang mga komix. Halos isang linggo kong tinapos ang l

Antagal ko nang gustong makapagbasa ng Kikomachine. Nababasa ko lang 'to dati sa Daily Inquirer eh. Ayos din mga banat pero di naman ako avid fan.

Nasa listahan ko na talaga pagbili ng Kikomachine. At biglang nagkaron ng Summer Komikon 2013, na naging motibasyon ko para bumili ng komiks. Pano ba naman, may book signing at book launch si Sir Manix Abrera! Kaya niyaya ko yung mga kaibigan ko na bumili. Si Cheska, binili nya yung Kikomachine #1 and #2. Tapos ako, bingyan ako ng extrang #4 n

Buti nalang, habang binabasa ko to sa trabaho ay nakakatawa din ang pinaguusapan ng mga kasama ko, kaya hindi halata na may sarili na akong mundo kasama ang Komix na to. Hahaha.

Pero, sa totoo lang ah... hindi lang puro kakornihan at katatawanan ang makukuha mo dito may mga Pa-deep na strips, na mapapaisip ka. Tulad ng pag-gamit ng wikang Filipino at yung sa

I bought this on a whim and it was a purchase I did not regret.

Beware of the gag strips inside or you'll bust your guts laughing. It is one of the few books that my sister and I both enjoy.

BÜK REBYU BEYBË: KIKOMACHINE KOMIX



Nais ko’ng ilinaw ang isang pagkakamali sa nakaraang rebyu sa isang aklat ng serya na ‘to. (Di ko masyadong matanda-an pero sa aklat bilang pan-lima yata ko na isulat yun.) Ang nasabi ko’ng pagkakamali ay hinggil sa pagpalagay ko na “ang mga aklat ni Manix, ay hindi isang material para sa pilosopikal na paksa at para sa naghahanap ng naturang paksa ay walang anumang nilalaman ang naturang serya kundi mga kakornehan at katatawanan”. Sa pag-isip-isip ko, at nang m

Unang pahina palang ng komiks na 'to, halatang bagong-bago palang siya. Una ko kasing nabasa yung mga latest na volume. Ibang-iba yung drawing at di pa gaanong humorous kumpara sa mga volumes 5, 6, 7 na sumasakit ang tiyan ko sa kakatawa. Di ko naman sa ayaw ko talaga sa volume na to, least favorite lang siguro. Syempre kung walang Blg. 1, di na magkakaroon ng blg. 2, 3, so on and so forth. Habang tumatagal din naman lalong gumaganda. Kaya oks lang! Rak en rol!

Plenty of genuinely funny and even laugh-out-loud strips in this collection. Even though there seems to be a certain "Diliman-centric-ness" to the humor in most of the strips, that doesn't mean that other people won't get the jokes. (I went to the university in Katipunan and I still got the jokes).

Manix Abrera is pretty much a legend now in the local Komiks scene and this nice collection of his newspaper strips is a good way to start reading him.

"ASTEEG"

isa sa mga di ko malilimutan sa aking mga nabasa nang komiks ang gawa ni manix., hindi lang dahil sa nakakatawa kundi dahil sa bawat jokes at ka ogag-an na binibitawan ng mga karakter ay makikita mo ang pinagdaanan mo kung pano magkaroon ng barkada., mag-aral., maging estudyante., at ang mag skyusmi.,

hindi dahil korni ang mga jokes.
hindi dahil nakakatawa ang mga jokes.

kundi dahil nakikita mo ang sarili mo sa mga pahina.

WTF!

Pinakauna 'to sa Kikomachine Komix Series ni Manix. Kumbaga, ito ang kanyang baby. Ito 'yong simula kaya 'yong mga drawing dito, 'di pa gano'n kasing improved kumpara sa mga sumunod. Sketchy pa 'yong dating ng mga drawing 'di tulad sa mga sumunod na may kaunti nang pattern, may depth at mas litaw ang galing ni Manix sa comics at doodle. Kung nabasa mo na lahat ng libro ni Manix, makikita mo 'yong pagyabong niya as an artist and as a writer/story-teller/philosopher. Whatevs. Corny pa 'yong ilang ...more

Matagal ko ng gustong basahin ang komiks ni Manix Abrera at ngayon lang ako nakakuha ng kagustuhang bumili at basahin ang kanyang mga likha.

Mga nasa ika limang pahina palang ako Natawa na ako at nagmumukha na akong baliw dahil tumatawa ako mag isa habang hawak ang librong 'to. Kaya masgugustuhin kong basahin ang librong 'to ng mag isa at walang tao nakapaligid sa akin. May mga ibang strips na matatawa ka dahil KORNI, sa sobrang ka kornihan matatawa ka nalang.

Tuwang tuwa din ako sa mga karakter

Dati akong komiks reader, talaga ung tipong may Aliwan komiks, Engkantasya, may Pugad Baboy na ata nun, Engkanto komiks at kung anu-anu pang mga maligno ang mga nababasa ko. May ilang rated X din na patago. Nung araw kasi uso ang pagsita ng mga babasahin, ung tipong babayad ka ng piso or dos, makakabasa ka na. Kaya lang lumipas na ang panahon, iba na ang naging kalakaran ngayon.

N'ung una kong nabasa 'to, (dated 2013) isip-isip ko medyo "classic" ata!? Kasi nga komix, kasi bata pa ako nung huli akong makakita ng mga komix. Pero nung binabasa ko na siya, wala siyang pinagkaiba sa mga nabasa kong mga librong-lokal. Hahahahaha! Pero pramis, nakakatuwa. Ang angas, tapos walang katulad. Lol :D Tapos medyo naka-relate ako dun sa may tagpo sa "UPFair" hahaha :D Pero di ko ginawa yung ganun pusaah! :D Basta thumbs-up.

This is one of those comic books where one could only just read to relax even in a long bus ride. This was one of those comic books where one could just laugh about the topics being discussed in it. This showcases Filipino humor and I think that Filipinos or anyone who has lived in this country will definitely enjoy this.

It's one book worth your money :)

Dito ko natutunan ang salitang 'Putik'.. lol..

It's a fun read --though most people I've shared it with finds it 'korni', I like it the way it is, the 'ka-kornihan' itself made it funny.

Also, I like it for dealing with the real issues not just in a student's life but of our country's state and of people's behavior --like those parts which centers on people who uses whitening products so as to be fair skinned :3

Over all, Sir Manix made a great great great

Sa unang volume ng Kikomachine, makikitang medyo pangit pa ang pagkakaguhit ng komiks at napangisi lang ako sa bawat strip na nababasa ko.
Volume 6 ang una kong kopya ng kikomachine at simula nang matapos ko iyon ay nagustuhan ko na ito. Volume 9 ang pinakapaborito ko dahil sobra akong natatawa roon.

Ang volume na 'to ay sakto lang. Nakakatuwa nga kasi sa bawat volume ay nag-i-improve ang komiks na ito.
Simple lang komiks na 'to, pinapakita lang na sa araw-araw na ginagawa natin ay punung-puno ng k
