Telembang

Telembang is a short-lived Tagalog satirical weekly magazine that was in circulation in the Philippines from 1922 to 1924. Edited by Filipino novelist Inigo Ed Regalado, this magazine contains hilarious stories, caricatures, and cartoons. According to art historians Alfredo Roces and Alfred McCoy, most of the cartoons were drawn by Fernando Amorsolo and Jorge Pineda.

Telembang also contains the very first regular komiks strip in the Philippines, Si Kiko at Angge, a hilarious cartoon series about a husband and wife and their differing views on Philippine society and politics.

There are all in all 111 issues of the Telembang from the first issue to the last, when it was forced to close down in 1924 due to a libel suit.
