UNANG LABAS
Unang labas ng Pilipino Komiks, Hunyo 14, 1947.
Ang Pilipino Komiks, na unang lumabas noong Hunyo 14, 1947, ang pangalawang babasahing tinawag na “komiks” at regular na naglalaman ng mga iginuhit na kuwento na lumabas sa sirkulasyon (Ang una ay ang Halakhak Komiks, Nobyembre 15, 1946).
Ang Pilipino Komiks ay ang unang komiks na inilimbag ng Ace Publication na itinatag ni Don Ramon Roces. Si Tony Velasquez ang nagbigay ng tugmang pangalan nito at naging unang patnugot. Sa unang labas, naglimbag ang Ace ng 10,000 kopya, na sa halagang 25 sentimos, ay kaagad naubos sa pamilihan.
Kasama sa unang labas ng Pilipino Komiks ay ang pinakamahabang sinubaybayang nobela sa komiks sa Pilipinas na DI-13 na inakda ng kapatid ni Tony Velasquez na si Damy at iginuhit ni Jesse Santos. Kasama rin ang Prinsesa Urduja ni Vicente Manansala, ang Makisig ni Amadeo Manalad, ang Lagim ni Cris Caguintuan, ang Daluyong ni Fred Carillo, ang Kalabog en Bosyo ni Larry Alcala, ang Lucas Malakas ni Jose Zabala Santos, at Ang Buhay ni Aldabes ni Hugo C. Yonzon Jr. Dito rin nagsimula ang dalawang-pahinang cartoon strip na Nanong Pandak ni Tony Velasquez. Sa komiks na ito rin lumabas ang kauna-unahang advertisement ng Pepsi Cola.
Naging lubhang matagumpay ang Pilipino Komiks, at mula rito nasundan pa ito ng mga ibang babasahin: Tagalog Klasiks (Hulyo 16, 1949), Hiwaga Komiks (Oktubre 11, 1950), Espesyal Komiks (Oktubre 20, 1952), at humigit-kumulang 20 iba pa. Dahil dito naging pinakamalaking publishing company ng babasahing pangmasa ang ACE sa Pilipinas nang panahong yaon. Mula sa panahon ng pamamayagpag ng mga unang komiks hanggang sa mailipat na ang pagmamay-ari nito sa Atlas Publications sa huling bahagi ng 1970s ay itinuturing na “Ginintuang Panahon ng Komiks sa Pilipinas.”
Ang Pilipino Komiks ay ang pinakamatagal sa sirkulasyon na babasahin na umabot ng anim na dekada at nagkaroon ng mahigit 3,200 isyu, bagama’t mula noong 2004 hanggang 2005 ay naging Pilipino Illustrated Stories na ang pamagat nito.

Live-in, Igorot Style
          Centuries before the term “live-in” was ever mentioned in “modern” literature, the Igorots of Northern Luzon already practiced what can be described as sort of a trial relationship. The custom is associated with the traditional institution of the ulog. Each igorot village has an ulog. It is a hut with a single door opening. Here the girls of the village gather at night to sleep and to be visited by their suitors. The boy meets the girl he wants and they can sleep together and have sex. But they cannot get married until after the girl gets pregnant.
          To the Igorots, pregnancy is the true test of marital compatibility. Only after the girl gets pregnant can she be engaged to her lover. Then and only then can marriage arrangement be negotiated by their families.
