Ang Nobelang Komiks na “Botong”

Ang nobelang-komiks na “Botong”
na isinulat ni Mars Ravelo
sa ilalim ng penname na Virgo Villa
at iginuhit ni Abe Ocampo,
tampok sa taklob-pahina ng
Universal Komiks Blg. 80 ( Abril 7, 1967).
          Sa katanyagan ni Mars Ravelo (1916-1988), noong 1950-1970 kinakailangan niyang gumamit ng mga penname upang hindi naman masabi ng mga mambabasa na pulos na lang mga kuwentong-katha niya ang lumalabas sa mga komiks at magasin. Isa sa mga ginamit niya ay ang “Virgo Villa.” Sa penname na ito sinulat niya ang nobelang “Botong” para sa Universal Komiks, isa sa mga pangmasang babasahin na inilunsad ng P.S.G. Publication ni Pablo S. Gomez noong 1960s. Unang lumabas ang “Botong” noong Agosto 13, 1966, at ito ay iginuhit ni Abraham "Abe" Ocampo.
