Pupung goes SOLO
Posted on

Back in the day when there was no Internet or cellphones, we read comics during weekends—everything from Archies to Tintins, to Pinoy komiks found in the pages of the newspapers.
Back in the ’80s, one of the more popular komiks was Pupung, created by a young cartoonist named Washington “Tonton” Young.
My Little Pupung started in the Tempo tabloid on December 15, 1983. It revolved around a young boy named Pupung, his family, and their congee restaurant.
The comic strip moved to the Times Journal until January 1986, when Young was fired after spoofing a radio ad for then-President Ferdinand Marcos.
Pupung later moved to the Manila Bulletin, where it appears to this day. (Wiki)

This September, SOLO celebrates Pupung through its Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series, which featured Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life in 2010, followed Tony Velasquez’s Kenkoy in 2011.
Tonton Young’s characters appear on SOLO his and hers graphic tees, varsity jackets, polo shirts, woven tops and dresses, men’s long sleeve shirts and shorts, necklaces, pouches, and coffee cups.

what i like about the “pupung collection” is that some of it comes with a free artistic pouch that can be very useful
