Komiks Master Pablo S. Gomez Dies!

The 81-year old veteran comics novelist Pablo S. Gomez passed away a day after the Christmas! This is the very sad news reported yesterday in different radio and TV stations.

According to reports, Gomez died at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Sta. Teresita Hospital in Quezon City after suffering a heart attack. His body is at St. Peter Mortuary Chapel, also in Quezon City, and is set to be cremated on December 30.

The untimely death of his sister Leonora on the Christmas eve triggered the heart attack of Gomez according to his family.

Pablo S. Gomez made a great contribution in the Komiks and in the showbiz world! I first knew Pablo when the fantasy TV series starring Anne Curtis "Kampanerang Kuba" started on TV. Yup, he is the writer of this story originally came from comics. Then it became a classic hit movie of Ms. Vilma Santos before it became a TV series in 2005.

But actually aside from "Kampanerang Kuba", Pablo S. Gomez already made lots of significant contributions in the world of comics and movies!

Pablo S. Gomez already created a big mark in the komiks industry way back 1950's! His works like "Guy and Pip", "Rosa Mistika", "Magdusa Ka", "Machete", "Hilda", "Kurdapya", "Torkwatta" and "Susanang Daldal" were made into classic hit movies!

Pablo also became screenwriters of many classic hit movies of the late King of Philippine Cinema Mr. Fernando Poe Jr. Some of these films were "Tulad ng Eseng ng Tondo", "Probinsyano", "Kahit Konting Pagtingin", "Sta. Quiteria", "Kalibre 45" and "Mahal San Ka Nanggaling Kagabi?"

Many of his works were became hit TV series of ABS-CBN. These includes "Kampanerang Kuba", "Inday Sa Balitaw", and other stories featured in "Wansapanataym". He is also the author of the comedy-fantasy daytime TV series "Juanita Banana"! He is also the man behind the classic hit movie "Petrang Kabayo" which was just recently revived!

In 2011, two of Gomez works will come to life in fantasy TV series. These will be brought by two giant networks namely ABS-CBN and GMA-7. The Kapamilya network will bring us "Mutya" starring Precious Lara Quigaman and Alfred Vargas while the Kapuso station will give us "Machete" starring Aljur Abrenica!

Pablo S. Gomez is truly a legacy! His works will forever live and will pass on in different generations! Condolence to his family.
