Manila Times reviews THE FILIPINO HEROES LEAGUE
Endorsing the ‘Filipino Heroes League’ KAREN KUNAWICZ Manila Times, May 18, 2011
The Filipino Heroes League (FHL) was a great and satisfying read, especially for those who need a break from the bombastic cookie cutter super hero/ super hero teams, which we get a lot of, everywhere we look, most especially at the cinema. Our heroes have to deal with everything from fellow heroes moving abroad to become Overseas Filipino Heroes (OFH) to low budgets―forget sleek cars, bikes and planes; it may sometimes take pedicabs to get to the rescue. Not to mention there’s also government corruption and poorly written school textbooks. Yes, they are operating a world that’s absurd but tangible and familiar to us.
