          Ang “Ukala (Ang Walang Suko)” ay nobelang-komiks na isinulat at iginuhit ni Alfredo Alcala para sa Pilipino Komiks (1952-1953). Ukala ang pangalan ng pangunahing karakter ng nobela na isang katutubong American Indian noong panahon ng pananakop ng mga Europeans sa Central America. Si Ukala ay “walang suko” (Paunawa: ang pakahulugan ng salitang “suko” rito ay “katapat,” “tayog” o “sukdulan”) na nagpapahiwatig na ang kaniyang tapang at galing ay “walang katapat.”
          Isina-pelikula ito sa titulong Ukala (Ang Walang Takot) ng Sampaguita Pictures sa ilalim ng direksiyon ni Artemio B. Tecson at itinanghal sa Center Theater noong Mayo 22-31, 1954.

Jane Fonda as Barbarella
on the cover of Life (March 29, 1968).
Picture Trivia
          The French science-fiction comic book, Barbarella, was originally conceptualized by Jean-Claude Forest for V-Magazine in 1962. Later on, Barbarella was published into a comic book by Eric Losfeld.
          The character Barbarella is a woman who has many adventures, mostly sexual, in her travels in space. The story around Barbarella is a rare mixture of science fiction and erotica.
          Do you know that in 1968, it was made into a film starring Jane Fonda as Barbarella? The film had English and French versions. In the French version, it was Fonda herself who said her lines in French.
          In the said film, Barbarella made a striptease in zero gravity, whereupon viewers could almost see Fonda naked. Kylie Minogue also used the iconography of Barbarella, and the zero-gravity striptease scene was duplicated in her award-winning video for the song “Put Yourself in My Place” (1994).                              o     O     o
