The first issue of Movie Fan (Philippines), |
April 1957, with Barbara Perez on the cover
In April 1957 the first issue of a monthly magazine in the Philippines with a title of Movie Fan came off the press. It contained news, stories and articles about movie stars in particular and the film industry in general. Actress Barbara Perez was its first cover girl.
The magazine Celebrity World, on the other hand, is a weekly publication of Mass Media Publishing Corporation. It contained articles about showbiz, lifestyle, art and culture, both on the local and international scene. Its first editor-in-chief and editor are Eliseo C. Taparan and Leonila R. Garcia respectively. The magazine was an offshoot of Movie Fan that underwent a facelift and broadened the scope of its contents.
The first issue that contained the title “Celebrity World” on its cover (although the logo and name Movie Fan was still included) appeared on February 17, 1994 for which Kris Aquino was the cover girl. The transition period continued up to the April 7, 1994 issue (Kristine del Rosario on the cover). The superscript “Movie Fan” was finally removed on the April 14, 1994 issue (Ina Raymundo on the cover). This is the legitimate first issue of Celebrity World.

Si Flash Bomba ay orihinal na fictional superhero na nilikha ni Mars Ravelo at ay unang iginuhit ni Jim Fernandez at pagkatapos ay ni Nestor Malgapo. Una itong lumabas sa Tagalog Klasiks noong Abril 14, 1967.
Matapos likhain ni Mars Ravelo ang mga komiks character na Darna, Captain Barbell, Lastikman, Dyesebel, Bodying, Goro at Booma, naisip niyang lumikha naman ng isang higit na kakaibang obra, isang tinagurian niyang “fantastic character” na “pambihira at espesyal” na tinitiyak niyang kagigiliwan ng mambabasa.
Ang pangunahing tauhan ng kuwento ay si Roldan na bagama’t anak-mayaman ay isang lumpo dahil sa sakit na polio. Itinaya niya sa pakikipagsapalaran ang kaniyang buhay upang makakuha ng tatlong ginintuang buhok ng tikbalang upang mabago ang kaniyang kapalaran at matupad ang pangarap na maging isang crime fighter. Nagtagumpay siya at kalakip ng kapangyarihang taglay ng mga ginintuang buhok, nagawa niyang magbagong-anyo bilang Flash Bomba. Sa kaanyuan ni Flash Bomba, lumaki ang kaniyang mga palad at mga paa at nakalalakad siya kahit sa gilid ng mga pader. Bukod dito, natatawag niya ang isang kawan ng kabayong bundok at ang tikbalang sa sandaling kailanganin niya ang tulong ng mga ito.
