    When you read this reflection, keep in mind that I have not read Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. I’ve tried many times over the years but have struggled finishing because of the archaic language. This comic along with the Noli comics I previously reviewed are attempted summaries of the classic. After having read both comics, I probably should have read the originals first, but here we go anyway…

Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo are essential historical texts in the Philippines. It describes a time when Spanish colonialism ruled the Philippines and its people. The two books aim to incite first, an awareness of the injustices happening and second, a revolution for Filipinas/os to reclaim the country. Though this is still a powerful message today since the Philippines continues to suffer from widespread corruption, it’s hard to ignore the blatant machismo in both books. Most of the male characters in this book, especially Ibarra/Simon, act impulsively and aggressively to achieve their means. Practically all main female characters in the comics, like Maria Clara (from the Noli), Sisa (from the Noli) and Juli (from the Fili), are portrayed as women prone to hysteria, which ultimately lead to them ending up in a convent or dying. Portrayed as women who needed to be saved by a “prince charming”. Other than that, I really enjoyed the illustrations in this one. Like the Noli comics, it really captures the feel of 1800s Philippines from their traditional attire to the architecture and design of the nipa huts. The dialogue and sequence of events were a little confusing at first, especially when the character Isagani was introduced. I can’t help but question how true to translation the text is. I’m curious to see how other Noli and Fili comics compare.
