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.

Inquirer interviews Paolo Fabregas


Creating Heroes of Our Own
By Ruel S. De Vera
Philippine Daily Inquirer, 05/14/2011

[...The Filipino Heroes League] used to be a big deal, with powerful members. But it had fallen on hard times, could not pay competitive super wages, and most of its members had left for better opportunities somewhere else. The FHL now only had three members: the veteran Flashlight, and the younger heroes, speedster Kidlat Kid and the stealthy Invisiboy.

For a year and a half, Paolo labored as both writer and artist, putting together what would become “The Filipino Heroes League Book One: Sticks and Stones,” published by Visual Print Enterprises. Finding time to work on it was a challenge. It worked well with the fact that Paolo is pathologically punctual. After all, he still had a demanding day job. “Trying to squeeze it in, I felt like I was doing guerilla comic book writing. I wake up super early in the morning and that’s when I write or draw. Whenever I’m in my drawing phase, I always have a bag with my drawing materials on me so that whenever I have any free time, like a 15-minute gap, I can just pull out the stuff and start drawing, and maybe I can finish a page.”

Now he chronicles the adventures of the remaining FHL members, both their heroic adventures and their trying to make an honest living. But a conspiracy rises against them and when the FHL is framed for the murder of a congressman, Flashlight, Kidlat Kid and Invisiboy need to find the truth.
