Dead Balagtas: Sayaw ng mga Dagat at Lupa is another triumphant addition to contemporary Filipino graphic literature. Written and illustrated by Emiliana Kampilan, Dead Balagtas is a collection of four stories, including a tried and tested pair of love stories and their struggles toward better welfare, and social acceptance that touches on LGBT, religious and political themes. These stories are interspersed with the pre-historic events of Philippine history, creating some of the most unique pane ...more

Believe the hype.

There is nothing to hate about this book. A game changer, indeed, the komiks is the most creative vehicle to tell our history - with science and mythology and human nature included in the equation. Most remarkable snippet of the art is Rahman's life story and the reveleation of Q'uran --- I am a Christian, and yet the words that were written from the holy scripture speak to me.

The book not only teaches about the history, but also keeps the readers to be #woke on the societal events, be aware of

Ang ganda ng komiks na Dead Balagtas Tomo 1 Mga Sayaw ng Dagat at Lupa, likha ni Emiliana Kampilan at ng Sambayanang Filipino. Hinahanap ko ang tamang pakiramdam matapos basahin ang komiks na ito. At hindi maalis sa isip ko ang ideya ng “Pinoy Pride” kahit alam ko na ang ibig sabihin nito sa karamihan ay international praise o exposure ng kapwa Pilipino. Sa pagbuklat mo pa lang ng komiks na ito at makita kung sino ang gumawa, mapapaisip ka agad kung karapat-dapat ka bang mabilang sa Sambayanang ...more

Sobrang ganda. Naluha ako ng ilang beses. Di ko alam pano i-describe yung kaligayahan at excitement na nadama ko habang binabasa ko 'to. Sana basahin ng bawat Pilipino, gawing required reading sa eskwela, sa opisina, sa bahay, kahit saang may Pilipino.

Isang mahusay na katha ng isang dakilang manhahabi. Napagniniig ni Kampilan ang tingkad ng salaysay sa tinis ng panahong pinadadaloy niya sa mga ugat nito. Natatangi ang katas ng bawat guhit at rubdob ng bawat kulay. Tunay ngang hiyas ito ng kasalukuyang panahon.

Isang maganda't malupit na libro.

Magical realism combined with contemporary queer issues, beautifully rendered by one of the best Filipino komikeros of our time.

ANG GANDA!

I was left in awe with every illustrations (especially the 1st chapter). It is also amazing how it is able to connect magical realism, history, Philippine society and love stories. I wanted to slow down my reading so I can marvel at every panel but it is such a page turner that I was able to finish it quickly.

Sobrang nakakaproud na nakakagawa ang mga Pinoy artists natin ng ganintong klaseng libro. I will surely await for the next in this series.

5 stars dapat, pero may isang isyung bumagabag sa akin. Actually, laging bumabagabag sa akin sa tuwing bibili ako ng libro, o mas actually, sa tuwing bibili ako ng anumang bagay. Sabihin ko mamaya.

Pero una sa lahat, sobrang panalo talaga itong komiks na ito. Nasabi na lahat ng reviewers dito lahat ng mga akmang papuri na gusto ko sabihin at himayin. Grabeng danas sa akin habang nagbabasa, simulang mga pahina pa lang (na paborito kong bahagi, yung babaylan na nag-intro, ta's yung transition sa da

Of course I picked up Dead Balagtas because of the hype.

My verdict: it is a trope I have read before.

Geography and the changes brought by natural phenomena affect and define our identity. Babaylans are historical figures and it’s not surprising to find her or him in the opening pages of the novel. The use of folklore and legend to frame the role of women and to foreshadow conflicting views on gender roles and expectations is deliberate done. I have seen and read these ideas and concepts before

Nahilo na ko sa sobrang daming eye rolls na naperform ko habang binabasa ito. I see the potential of this komik (babasahin ko pa rin siguro ang Tomo 2 paglabas), especially yung passion ni Kampilan sa mga themes na tinackle niya, pero overall yung execution niya ay nag-fall flat at medyo dry ang pagsusulat niya. May certain dettachment effect din yung paandar niya with the geography lesson, imbis na maimmerse ako dun sa kwento, eh nadistract lang ako. At sa totoo lang, di yun masyado nakadagdag ...more

DUMUDUGO NG PULA ANG LIBRONG ITO. SA MGA GANITONG URI NG LIBRO AKO NABUHUHAY AT NAKIKIBAKA.

“Ang kwento natin, ang pakikibaka natin ang bumuo sa bansang ito. At kahit magpapalit-palit tayo ng gobyerno, tayong tao ang gumagawa ng kwento natin; tayo ang bayan. Nasa atin ang kapangyarihan. Atin ang lupa, at tayo ang lupa. Kaya nating sipain paalis sa atin — paalis dito — ang mga sanhi ng pagdurusa natin — kurap na pulis, mamamatay taong diktador, mga imperyalista, mga haciendero,” she says.

Punong-puno ng puso.

Hinabi ni Emiliana Kampilan ang mayamang naratibo ng mitolohiyang Pilipino, siyensiya, kasaysayan, at isyung panlipunan at iniangkla ang mga ito sa mga kwento ng pag-ibig at pakikibaka.

Maganda, hitik sa konteksto ng sinauna at kontemporaryong Pilipinas; interseksyon ng politikal, kultural, panrelihiyon, at panlipunang diskurso; nakabubusog sa mata na aspektong biswal.

Salamat sa karanasang ito, Dead Balagtas.

Ubod nang ganda ng “Dead Balagtas Tomo 1: Mga Sayaw ng Dagat at Lupa” ni Emiliana Kampilan. Kung hindi mo pa alam, tinatalakay nito ang kasaysayan ng Filipinas, pero sa komiks! Ang husay ng paraan ng pagtuturo ng kasaysayan at siyensiya dahil inilapit ng manunulat ang kanyang paksa sa mga isyu na kung saan madaling makakasabay ang kahit na sinong mambabasa. Ang ganda-ganda ng librong ito. Kombinasyon ng siyensiya, kasaysayan, pag-ibig, at makukulay at magagandang drowing.

Wow, I can’t recommend this book enough! A masterful mix of science, Philippine mythology, and culture, with powerful commentaries on societal issues, such as the LGBT community and the working class, and also touches on religion and family. One of my best reads for the year. You owe it to yourself to get a copy (available at Fully Booked)!

Ito ay isang kakaibang pag-kuwento sa isang bahagi ng kasaysayan ng Pilipinas. Magaling ang paraan ng paggamit ng mga tauhan at lugar na napapanahon sa pagkuwento ng kasaysayan, kasama na rin ang mga magagandang ilustrasyon.

Inaabangan ko ang susunod na kabanata nito.
