The low down on the great Heroine DARNA!
I've been a comic fan for quite some time, and while I like to think that I know all about them, the truth of the matter is that I tend to forget that there are are kinds of comics published all over the world that I've never heard of... I remember being at Wizard World Chicago one year and having a fan tell me about a Filipeno Heroine that is somewhat similar to Wonder Woman who dates back about 50 years... I don't know ANYTHING about Filipeno comics ( other than that the 1970's American comics were filled with work form great Filipeno artist... Alex Nino comes to mind right away!) But I had long wondered who this character was... I finally have my answer... It's DARNA!
If you don't know this character and you're a comics fan you have to check this character out.. I found a great link to the history of the character.. ( but sure to check out the vintage cover gallery...the early adventures of Darna have covers that remind me very much of the beautiful line work of Mac Raboy drawing Captain marvel Jr. in the 1940's for Fawcett comics... Enjoy!
