From Komiks to Movies

When the komiks industry took a dive in the 1990s, Caparas turned to producing and directing movies. In 2006, Caparas spearheaded the Komiks Congress, a massive effort to revive the komiks industry in the Philippines. To help spread awareness that komiks is still a popular reading material amongst Filipinos, he toured the contry with his Komiks Caravan, an exhibit of original comics across the country.

Carlo was recently awarded by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo the Presidential Medal of Merit for his contributions to Philippine culture. Others komiks greats who received the medals were Tony Velasquez, Mars Ravelo, Francisco V. Coching, and Larry Alcala, all posthumously awarded.

In September 14 2007, Caparas launched new komiks titles in newsstands. He hopes that this will boost the popularity of komiks in the Philippines once more.

Protest

The list of 2009 National Artists prompted controversy with the naming of Jose “Carlo” J. Caparas for visual arts. Comic book writer and artist Gerry Alanguilan leads the protest, stating on his blog that Caparas could not be cited for visual arts as he never did the illustrations for his comics himself. Being deemed a National Artist for Film, he added, was also “ridiculous” as his movies “lack any intellectual substance.” In response, Caparas' wife said that his husband was qualified to be a National Artist for his popular works which have been enjoying television appearances for the past years.
