Reminiscing Pupung through Solo’s New Collection

Solo never failed to give us nostalgic attack with its Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series. Yearly, Solo pays tribute to Pinoy Pop Culture with homegrown Pinoy iconic cartoonists.  Solo brought us back to the heyday of Filipino comics when komiks magasins used to be a big form of entertainment of most Pinoys. The creative collection spearheaded with the playful and witty characters of Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life in 2010, followed by no less than the greatest work of the Father of Filipino Cartoons, Tony Velasquez’s Kenkoy in 2011.  This year, the series proudly features Tonton Young’s Pupung. 

Pupung comics strip focuses on Philippine pop culture, fascination with basketball as well as business trends and rarely tackles political issues.  Pupung became popular for its punchlines and the humor used in the strip is lighter than other Filipino comic strips which gives it a family-oriented theme.  Up to this day, Pupung appears in Manila Bulletin and continues to make Pinoys laugh everyday. Pupung and all your fave characters from the strip, Mommy, Daddy, Lolo Dom, Day, Jordan, Lelong and Larry Bird will be immortalized in a pop collection!

The collection will hit the stores on September! Part of the collection will be His&Hers graphic tees, popular varsity jackets, polo shirts, woven tops and dresses, men’s long sleeves and shorts and adorable accessories such as necklaces, toilety pouches and coffee ceramic cups with covers.
