Tonton Young’s Pupung goes SOLO

Fashion and lifestyle clothing brand Solo brought back the Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia featuring Pinoy Komiks icon ‘Pupung’.

In 2010, Solo introduced the Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life, followed by no less than the greatest work of the Father of Filipino Cartoons, Tony Velasquez’s Kenkoy in 2011. This year, the series proudly features Tonton Young’s Pupung.

Pupung is a daily comic strip revolves around the family of Pupung and their hilarious adventures. The story is based on Tonton’s everyday life, tending to his family’s lugawan business , a restaurant which mainly serves rice congee (Filipino lugaw) dishes. He always plays basketball on weekends (just like all the characters in Pupung).

The comics strip focuses on Philippine pop culture, fascination with basketball as well as business trends and rarely tackles political issues. Pupung became popular for its punchlines and the humor used in the strip is lighter than other Filipino comic strips which gives it a family-oriented theme.

The Solo Pinoy Cartoonist Memorablia takes timeless Pupung comic strips puts in on His&Hers graphic tees, popular varsity jackets, polo shirts, woven tops and dresses, men’s long sleeves and shorts and adorable accessories such as necklaces, toilety pouches and coffee ceramic cups with covers. The collection hits the stores in September. It is perfect for fun wearable collectibles as Christmas gifts.
