"Elmer" reviewed in:
http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/?p=2401


Gerry Alanguilan’s story of the difficulties in one race accepting another, here man and chickens, of course is a thinly veiled look at such problems that have beset man forever. It is a sharply told tale and has top notch art. Self published by Gerry’s own Komikero imprint ask your local comics store to order some direct if they don’t stock it. Alanguilan is part of what appears to be a lively local comics scene in the Philippines, although perhaps one that is not really commercially self sustaining. He is aware of the great tradition of Filipino comics greats like Alcala and Redondo - the book is in English and deserves a look, and the Filipino scene warrants further examination as it has many fine artists.
