LIPANG KALABAW is a satirical-political entertainment weekly Tagalog magazine that was circulated in the Philippines in three different periods: 1907-1909, 1922-1924, and 1947-1948.
Owned and edited by Lope K. Santos, the Lipang Kalabaw of 1907-1909 tackled the relevant issues of politics, society, and culture of the day. The caricatures of the famous personalities of the era made it a very controversial magazine. According to art historians, this early Lipang Kalabaw caricatures were drawn by Jorge Pineda. The magazine folded in 1909, as a result of pressure from the government.
In 1922, Santos revived the magazine, calling it BAGONG LIPANG KALABAW and with the byline “Gamot sa Magagalitin at sa Nalulungkot”, a possible attempt by Santos not to let the ghost of the first Lipang Kalabaw haunt the new one. It may also be a ploy to hide the true intent of the magazine: to once again attack the bureaucracy. The magazine contained the popular comic strip Ganito Pala sa Maynila, written by Santos and illustrated by Amorsolo. The comic strip was the second to have been published in the Philippines, the first being Kiko at Angge published in sister magazine Telembang a few months ahead. In 1924, Bagong Lipang Kalabaw was closed down due to a libel suit filed against it in relation to the Philippine National Bank scandal.
In 1947, Lipang Kalabaw was once again resurrected, albeit briefly. Sadly, this Lipang Kalabaw series lacked the humor of the original series. It also lacked the artists who made the Lipang Kalabaw one of the best illustrated weeklies in the Philippines. 
TELEMBANG, subtitled “Lingguhang Mapagpatawa at Manunukso”, is a 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. It also contains the very first regular komiks strip in the Philippines, 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. 
PAGSUYO is a komiks magasin published fortnightly by Pagsuyo Komiks Magasin. Its maiden issue appeared in 1987 with Henry Cuino as Editor. It contained prose and illustrated stories with sexual themes, cartoon strips, entertainment news, crossword puzzles, horoscope, songhits and many more.

SIKLAB, subtitled “A Pinoy Graphic Magazine”, is an 88-page black and white anthology of original pinoy komiks featured in magazine size format combined with feature articles and essays on the pinoy komiks scene. Its target audience is the pinoy komiks enthusiast aged 15 to 50, and was independently published by Turning Point Publications. Such a combination has never been tried before and is probably the first of its kind in pinoy komiks publishing history. It may be therefore be properly dubbed as a “collectible”. It was launched at the 3rd Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention (TOYCON) on June 27, 2004 held at the SM Megamall 5th level, Megatradehall 3, Ortigas Complex, EDSA, Mandaluyong City.
HILIGAYNON is a weekly Ilonggo magazine first published by Ramon Roces, Inc. Its maiden issue was named “ANG BISAYA SA HILIGAYNON” and was dated August 3, 1934, under Abe S. Gonzales as its Managing Editor. The first Ilongga whose beauty becomes the first cover of the magazine was Remedios Martin. In 1965, the Hiligaynon together with the other vernacular magazines – Bannawag, Bisaya and Liwayway were sold to Liwayway Publishing, Inc. and later on repurchased by the Manila Bulletin Publishing Corporation.

BISAYA is a weekly Cebuano magazine now published by Manila Bulletin Publishing Corporation. It has the record of being the oldest magazine in Cebuano, which is still in circulation now, and “the most successful periodical in Cebuano” (CCP, p.542).
BISAYA was established by Ramon Roces upon the request of Cebuano poet Vicente Padriga, who became its first editor. Its maiden issue appeared on August 15, 1930, as part of the magazines published by Ramon Roces, Inc. During the Second World War, Bisaya stopped publication but it was revived on August 14, 1946. It had an initial circulation of 5,000 copies, which rose to around 60,000 copies in the 1960s.
In June, 1948, Bisaya started a monthly sister publication, Saloma, a literary pamphlet which carried a complete novel in every issue. Saloma lasted until the late 1950s, with a circulation ranging from 8,000 to 22,000.
TOPAK! HUMOR MAGAZINE is a humor comics magazine published by PSICOM Publishing, Inc. Edited by Stanley Chi, its maiden issue was launched on August 30, 2007. The contributing artists and writers for this magazine are a mixture of cartoonists from various groups like SKP, Ang-INK, Komikero, & Alamat Comics Group. Among them are Lyndon Gregorio, Ariel Atienza, Julius Villanueva, Jomike Tejido, Jonas Diego, Jerald Dorado, Stanley Chi, Jac Ting Lim, Bok Hong, Luwi Netro, Lyra Garcellano, Lico Reloj, Elbert Or, Ron Tan, Allen Geneta, Dominic Agsaway, Andrew Villar, Randy Valiente, Mark See, Gerry Alanguilan, Dyords Javier, Reggie Manlungat, Amos Villar, and Ralf. 
SINDAK! HORROR-THRILLER MAGAZINE is a new large format (9″x12″) comics magazine published by ABS-CBN Publishing. Its maiden issue was released in April, 2008 with KC Cordero as Editor. Like Liwayway, Sindak! has a lot of articles, with a large comics section. Comics contributors include Randy Valiente, KC Cordero, Novo Malgapo, Rommel Estanislao, Ner Pedrina, Gerry Alanguilan, etc.
TIKTIK, subtitled “Magasin ng mga Krimen at Kasaysayan ng Paniniktik”, is a true crime pulp magazine. Started in 1948, Tiktik pushed the threshold in its day for graphic content; be it in its no holds barred articles or lurid pictures of victims of the violent crimes that it features in its pages. It was released 26 times a year and ran until the mid-1980s.
The magazine featured indepth articles on various types of crime ranging from ingenious blue collar crimes to violent crimes of passion and revenge. Aside from the articles and stories, Tiktik also featured some very well-drawn crime comic book stories, much like those that were popularized by EC Comics in the United States.
In order to drum up more sales in the 1970s, the magazine slowly became a “skin magazine” and featured graphic scenes of nudity as well as very adult oriented comics. This trend continued to a shocking degree in the 1980s gaining for itself much notoriety in Philippine society.
In early 1980s, Tiktik became a full-pledged komiks magasin, carrying its subtitle “Palayain ang Sining at Panitikang Pilipino”. It was published by Sagalongos Publications. Tiktik saw its eventual demise when the Philippine government began a crackdown on what it deemed “morally-reprehensible publications”.
SILAHIS is a weekly Tagalog magazine published by Silahis Publishing House. Edited by Jose Esperanza Cruz, this magazine contained news and literary articles written in Filipino language as well as comics strips inside its pages.

ALIWAN (literary translated in Tagalog for: something that enthrals) is a romance and adventure type of magazine/digest, much akin to the pulp magazines/digests that were popular in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s. (They were called “pulps” because the paper they were printed on were of lower quality compared to the type used on books at the time.) This publication was printed in black and white, with colored painted covers. The full-length novels, novelettes and short stories also included story illustrations as well as short comic stories at the end of each issue. In its earlier run, the stories published in Aliwan were primarily Romance Stories. Later on, Adventure and Crime Stories were also included mimicking the trend in the United States.
Aliwan came out 52 times a year and ran from 1945 to the early 1960s, when it was overtaken by the new trend towards comic books popularly known as Komiks. ALIWAN was published by Ramon Roces, Inc., which was part of the publishing family that printed the Manila Times broadsheet, and later on would go on to spearhead the popularization of comic books through the now defunct Ace Publications, Inc., one of the first and largest comic books publishing companies in the Philippines during its day.

EXTRA LIWAYWAY EXTRA is a comic book and magazine rolled into one thick publication. Its maiden issue was released in January, 1936. It is a monthly supplement of the magazine Liwayway. It had more pages and more comic strips than the weekly Liwayway.
The comics section includes the works of Tony Velasquez, the Father of Philippine Comics. His characters here include Kenkoy (Album ng Kabalbalan) and Ponyang Halobaybay. Velasquez also drew some of the artwork for literary pieces, including a caricature of Soviet Leader Josef Stalin. Other comics were done by Deo Gonzales.
HOY! is a komiks magasin published by Image Enterprises, Inc. Its maiden issue appeared in May, 1986 shortly after the People Power Revolution that toppled the Marcoses from political power. As such, most of its contents reflected the era of the times: cartoons and caricatures that lambasted the arrogance and the indulgence of the Marcoses. The komiks-magazine proved to be non-partisan, though, as Cory and Doy also got their share of critical caricatures.
Hoy! is patterned after the popular American comic-magazine MAD. It is about the same size and the same number of pages. Unlike Mad, however, Hoy! is only short-lived with only a few issues published. Just like the short-lived Lipang Kalabaw and Telembang komiks-magazines during the Philippine-American period, Hoy! was also the cartoonists’ inspired and albeit hilarious view of the social, political, and cultural events of its times. 
PILIPINO, subtitled “Ang Babasahin ng Bayan”, is a defunct weekly magazine published by Philippines Free Press, Inc. Its maiden issue appeared on August 5, 1965 with Jose F. Lacaba as Acting Editor. The magazine’s format is similar to the oldest and longest running magazine Liwayway, which contained articles, columns, prose and poetry, entertainment news, and komiks section.
DAIGDIG, subtitled “Ang Dating Hiwaga”, is an entertainment magazine founded in 1946. Edited by the popular novelist Inigo Ed Regalado, the magazine contained literary, news and entertainment articles.

BULAKLAK, subtitled “Hiyas ng Tahanan”, is a vernacular magazine published by Social & Commercial Press. First appeared in 1943 with Francisco G. Guballa as Managing Editor, Bulaklak is similar to Liwayway which featured prose stories and serials, poetry, entertainment news, komiks supplement and other regulars such as crossword puzzle, caricatures, health tips, etc.
In 1970, RAR Publishing House, a self-publishing company of Filipino comic creator Mars Ravelo, acquired the right to publish the Bulaklak, which at that time was encountering difficulties. ”BULAKLAK AT PARUPARO” became the title of the magazine. It was made into full-blown movie magazines after 10 years. Its publication was ceased in 1983 when the company had to close shop due to the global economic crisis.
Bulaklak was then revived by Tiger Publishing Corporation in 2001. Its maiden issue appeared on August 27, 2001 with Loren Banag and Virgilio C. Blones as Editors. Just like the old format, it contained prose novels & short stories, komiks section, and a lot more. In the komiks section, it featured the illustrated novels written by Ofelia Concepcion and R.R. Marcelino. However, its publication did not last long. After a few issues, it ceased publications.
