Ang “MN” ni Pablo S. Gomez
Ang nobelang-komiks ni Pablo S. Gomez na “MN”
tampok sa taklob-pahina ng Pilipino Komiks
(Hulyo 17, 1954).
          Ang nobelang-komiks na “MN” na isinulat ni Pablo S. Gomez at iginuhit ni Fred Carillo ay sinubaybayan sa Pilipino Komiks mula Setyembre 26, 1953 hanggang Setyembre 11, 1954. Ang “MN” ay tatak na sumasagisag sa pangalang Marissa Navarro, isang malupit na hasiyendera na kinatatakutan ng mga nasasakupan nitong magsasaka. Hanggang nakatagpo siya ng katapat sa katauhan ni Armando, na nang lumaon ay kaniyang inibig. Ang malupit na pag-uugali ni Marissa ay bunsod ng kaniyang masamang karanasan sa kamay ng isang dating mangingibig – si Oscar.
          Isinapelikula ang MN ng Sampaguita Pictures noong 1954 sa ilalim ng direksyon ni Mar S. Torres. Si Carmen Rosales ang gumanap na Marissa habang si Cesar Ramirez ang gumanap na Armando. Ang iba pang pangunahing artista na kasama sa pelikula ay sina Alicia Vergel, Oscar Moreno, Panchito Alba, Aruray, Herminia Carranza, Bert Leroy Jr at Apolonia Aguilar.
