Hunghang Flashbacks fans, the gang of hunghangs whose shenanigans you’ve long been following online is back with a new book—get ready to laugh along to more silly jokes and hilarious mishaps!
Hunghang Flashbacks creator D. Borja delighted fans of the popular web comics with the release of Hunghang Flashbacks: Hala Shet, Libro Na! under Summit Books in 2017, a book which gathered the series’ funniest comic strips plus all-new ones. Now, fans will be able to get their hands on a new volume of its most popular content along with never-before-seen material, as Summit Books releases Hunghang Flashbacks: Wow! Nice! Libro Ulit!
The new volume features the same riotous barkada that has made the series a favorite among netizens—fraternal twins XY and XX, XY’s girlfriend GF, Pretty Friend, Crush, Beanie, and Chubs—but this time with interesting character twists that will have long-time readers hooked. Plus, beefing up the bunch are new personalities: Shy Friend, the extremely timid but foul-mouthed addition to the gang; Meanie, Beanie’s evil sister; and Brodie, GF’s overprotective older brother and XY’s archenemy.
There’s more for fans to enjoy in the new book, such as the comic-style foreword by acclaimed comic artist Lyndon Gregorio of Beerkada fame. Also inside are character artworks, as well as conversations written in group chat-style that anyone who’s regularly on messaging apps will be able to relate to. Finally, D. Borja gives followers a glimpse into his creative, humorous mind with the Q&A that closes out the book.
D. Borja is a licensed nurse turned creative designer and illustrator who now works as a graphic designer in the Middle East. Upon the urging of his girlfriend, he began sharing Hunghang Flashbacks comic strips on Facebook back in December 2016, a series inspired by his recollections of amusing encounters, stories heard from peers, and personal thoughts. Since then, Hunghang Flashbacks has amassed over 270,000 followers on Facebook, over 44,000 on Twitter, and close to 11,000 on Instagram.
Hunghang Flashbacks: Wow! Nice! Libro Ulit! is now available in bookstores nationwide for P350.
