Patay kung patay 03 cov

National Artist in Literature F. Sionil Jose wrote a highly thought provoking essay entitled “Why We Are Hungry?” I suggest readers to read this why indeed we are still “hungry”. I bring this up because the creative team behind Patay Kung Patay  actually delivers what “hungry” can do in the most extreme case of socioeconomic meltdown and survival scenario. Issue number three nails the apocalyptic feel when the members of the country’s high society finally come face-to-face with their worst nightmare ever. Say it this is what “social justice” should be in the most gruesome fashion yet. The rich and the powerful finally meet their match; and the oppressed and the marginalized are now welding the intoxicating notion that is “power” in the rawest, if not the purest, form so far. The creative team seems to channel its disgust of anything “burgis”/”elit” in this latest chapter that demands our attention.

My only gripe here is the interior art. The last two chapters are simply the BEST artworks that justify the feel and tension these intangibly brought to readers, in addition to the theme and plot of the story. However in this third installment, I feel this one is “rushed” and/or “sketchy” to the degree that the red shading/coloring that simply dominated the two previous issues almost feel wanting, if not uninspiring. If I add, where in earth is our favorite television crew, Jun? I hope he appears in the next exciting and riveting issues.
Nevertheless, Patay Kung Patay #3‘s storytelling, its fast-pacing motion, the snappy and raw dialogues and exchanges, and the artist’s improving sequential paneling are the best things this issue delivers. Plus, you can say that “CHANGE IS COMING”, especially for those in the bourgeoisie and elite “matapobre” section.
