MUST READ: Mar Roxas' Yolanda Comic Book Earns Different Reactions from Internet Users!

A+ A-

Supporters of Presidential candidate Mar Roxas chose to create a comic book aiming to wipe out wrong information about Roxas' participation in Typhoon Yolanda preparation and aftermath. According to Daang Matuwid Coalition spokesman and Akbayan Representative, Barry Gutierrez, 'Sa Gitna ng Unos' comic book was produced by the supporters of Liberal Party standard-bearer, but they strongly affirm the details of it.

Gutierrez added: "Ang comics ay gawa ng mga supporters na gustong ipaalam sa ating mga kababayan ang ginawa ni Mar sa Yolanda," Gutierrez said in statement. "Ginawa ito dahil sa patuloy na pagkalat ng kasinungalingan tungkol sa kanyang mga nagawa. Bilang comics, natural na may dramatisasyon ito. Matagal nang nailahad ang katotohanan tungkol sa mga nagawa ni Mar sa Yolanda. Malinaw ang record niya dito, at pinaninindigan namin ito.

The book focused on the actions of the former DILG Secretary, before, during and after the catastrophe. Here are some of the excerpts:

Image Caption: On these scenes, the presidential bet called for a meeting with the mayors of cities and municipalities to plan and execute rescue and relief operations in the aftermath. It also clarifies that the alleged war between Mar and Tacloban Mayor, Alfred Romualdez, was just a mere misunderstanding and was sensationalized by Roxas' critics to destroy his image.

Image Caption: Included in the book is the shameful motorcycle accident of Mar Roxas when he travelled in Dolores, Eastern Samar to check and help areas affected by Typhoon Ruby last December 2014.

These illustrations went viral online and netizens couldn't stop sending positive and negative comments towards the book. The illustrator, Karl Commendador, was not spared from bashing. On his Facebook, he posted a statement last Monday, saying: "Marami po akong naidrowing na komiks pampulitika noon at ngayon. Trabaho lang po, sana'y inyong maunawaan. Maraming salamat po. DUTERTE PO ANG PRESIDENTE KO!"

This might be a part of the ongoing presidential campaign. However, whether or not it's election period, the truth shall prevail. There are a lot of sides to be heard and it's neither our role to judge nor to condemn. People deserve to know what really happened and who did not answer his call of duty during the worst typhoon.
