KIKO AT ANGGE
Written by Inigo Ed Regalado
Illustrated by Fernando Amorsolo
Telembang, 1922-1924

KIKO AT ANGGE is the very first regular komiks strip in the Philippines. It antedated Kenkoy at Rosing for about seven years. Published in an obscure news-magazine called Telembang in the early 1920s, Kiko at Angge was written by Tagalog novelist Inigo Ed Regalado and illustrated by Fernando Amorsolo. It is a hilarious cartoon series about a husband (Kiko) and and his nagger wife (Angge) and their differing views on Philippine society and politics. It also reflects the life of the Filipinos during the middle years of the American rule in the Philippines.
