Bulaklak

Bulaklak Magasin

BULAKLAK, subtitled “Hiyas ng Tahanan”, is a vernacular magazine published by Social & Commercial Press. First appeared on April 14, 1947 with Francisco G. Guballa as Managing Editor, Bulaklak is similar in content and structure 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 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.
