UNANG LABAS: HOY! Magazine
Isang kakatwang magazine ang HOY! na pinaghalong katatawanan at seryosong political lampoon, bagama’t hindi ito nagkaroon ng pagpapatuloy at tagapag-taguyod. Una itong lumabas sa sirkulasyon (May, 1986) humigit-kumulang dalawa’t-kalahating buwan matapos ang EDSA Revolt. Makikita sa taklob-pahina ng unang isyu ang isang ilustrasyon ng umaawit sa entablado na Unang Ginang Imelda Marcos, habang nakasilip sa likod ng telon ang Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos, at nanunood naman sina Juan Ponce Enrile, Fidel Ramos, Cory Aquino at Salvador Laurel.
