This is my 6th book by Manix Abrera,now the most famous komiks cartoonist in the Philippines. At 30, he has already published 10 books and all of them are bestsellers, very prominently displayed in big bookstores here. All of them have an average of 4 stars here in Goodreads.

I am a bit old for his stuff but I still find them funny. In fact, I am using his books to perk me up after consecutively reading depressing books. For example, this week, I finished the Norman Mailer's The Executioner's Son

If you look at the publication details of this volume, it doesn't write its title "Golden Ratio", but the actual equation! Astig mehn. And it even has its own version of the Monty Hall problem, something which I discuss in my Stat 101 class! Manix, hardcore ka talaga tsong! ...more

Mga nabasa ko na sa dyaryo yung mga nandito, kaya parang re-read na lang yung iba.

(maiintindihan lang ang sumusunod kapag nabasa niyo na itong komiks)

-Yung Parable about mother's love hindi ko naranasan yan sa recollection namin haha
-Natatawa ko dahil walang pangalan ang karakters kaya si 'kwan' na lang tawag sa kanya haha. (view spoiler)
-Ang cool ni Alpha Omega, lakas maka-rhetorical question haha
-Meron nga sa mga kaibigan ko yung nasa 'H

Siguro dapat nang palitan ang category ng mga libro ni Manix sa mga bookstore mula sa 'Entertainment' o 'Humor' pa-'Philosophy' o 'Self-Help' pa nga. Ang dami kasing nakapaloob na retorika sa mga comics niya, 'di mo alam kung seseryosohin mo 'yong pagpapatawa niya, o matatawa ka sa pagiging seryoso ng akda o tatawanan mo 'yong sarili mo kasi hindi mo alam kung ano ang sagot. Ganyan! Ganyan ang mga gawa ni Manix! Pag-iisipin ka, o minsan tatamarin ka na ring mag-isip kasi nga sinampal na ni Manix ...more

Kumpleto ko ang Kikomachine Komix at ang mga susunod pang Blg eh siguradong bibilhin ko.
Pakiramdam ko talaga isa akong living Kikomachine Komix character dahil sa sobrang nakakarelate ako sa mga strips, lalo na dun sa strips na tungkol sa blog. Sa ngayon itong Blg. 8 pinakapaborito ko at mas naenjoy ko sya kesa sa blg 6 at 7. :)) (OO na, diehard fan na at pangarap ko maimmortalized sa Kikomachine Komix, if ever possible XD)

Wala akong ibang masabi kundi ASTEEG! \m/

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

Manix Abrera has established himself as one the Philippine's original and talented cartoonists. The hilarious and often, the surreal take on life makes the his books a national bestseller. The 8th of his Kikomachine Komix Series, Manix now becomes daring in challenging the Pinoy philosophical nature not to mention the flaws and the hidden ideas left unspoken within our minds. Unusual quips and witty one-liners are sure to satisfy the craving of many readers to the twisted and often bizarre chara ...more

Ayos! As usual, panalo na naman ang malulupit na hirit ni Manix Abrera. Sa ika-walong pagsasama-sama ng Kikomachine comic strips, makikilala ninyo ang mahiwagang duwende, si Alpha Omega, mababasa ang Bulutong Tubig Stories, at kung anu-ano pang mga tagpong mapapa-'rakenrol' ka na lang sa pagka-surreal.

Bawat comic strip compilation ng Kikomachine Komix, may bago. Bagong out of this world na characters, bagong style ng pagkakasulat ng pamagat (tulad ng Alibata writing noong ika-anim na compilation

Ito iyon eh. Ito iyong nagpapatawa, nagpapaaliw at nagpapasaya sa akin. Unang beses ko pa lang siya nakita sa bookstore, nagustuhan ko na agad. Maybe because of the cover and the title. Nakaka-curious iyong cover niya. Although, gusto ko sanang palakihin nila kaunti iyonh font kasi kahit 20/20 vision ko, sumasakit mata ko eh, tsaka ano, parang kailangan ko pang imudmod mukha ko sa libro para mabasa.


Pero gustung-gusto ko siya. Pati iyong laman. Iyong illustrations. Si Alpha Omega. iyong teachers

Sa sobrang nakakatawa, nakakamatay.

Manix Abrera with his group of characters' witty comebacks and way of thinking will make you think and laugh your ass off. Smart, witty, and absolutely funny. This is one of those read-and-laugh-your-ass-off books.

Personal: This is actually the first book of the Kikomachine Komiks I've read and I am super happy that I got my friend to lend me this book. I'm definitely looking forward to buying the other volumes. This kept me laughing to myself like a maniac. 5

hahaahaha! Congrats Sir Manix! Thank you din po sa pag-sign ng copy ko!

Laugh trip talaga! Kahit text heavy siya, simple lang pero it still reaches out to you! Binigyang pag-asa ako ng librong to, FOR REAL! :)))

Might as well use this book to tickle myself since it causes same results when you read it. Manix never ceases to make me laugh. It literally brought me to tears.
