Pugad Baboy for Solo's Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series

05 September 2014

One of my favorite memories from Elementary are those that involve my friend Jellarmine bringing her older brother's Pugad Baboy comic books by Pol Medina Jr. and then letting me borrow them so we can snicker at our favorite jokes come recess or dismissal. Those were the days.

Guess what, after the success of other comics-inspired collections, local brand Solo is bringing all those glory days back by coming up with the Pugad Baboy collection for Solo's Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series!

Solo’s back with another exciting collection for its 5th year of Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia! This time, we are joined by the talented cartoonist Pol Medina Jr. as we continue to pay homage to Solo’s comic based collection! 
Following the success of the first four highly praised collections comes Pol Medina Jr.’s legendary comic strip Pugad Baboy - a funny, tongue-in-cheek, and sometimes controversial comic strip depicting the general sentiment of Filipinos on relevant topics.
If you’re already an avid reader, congratulations! You got yourself a treat! But if you’re just starting to get familiar with it, it does not matter! The Pugad Baboy collection is eye-catching and fun, definitely something that everyone can enjoy!
Think comical, artistic, and subtly patriotic! The colorful collection is composed of collared tees decked in all over Polgas prints, one of the cartoon strip's prominent characters. Solo also offers urban-classic dresses, tops in vibrant color combinations, quirky and sleek sporty graphic tees, eccentric comic strip scenes, and statement shirts inspired by the witty comebacks of Mr. Pol Medina Jr.! Lots of gift items too like bags and accessories! Keep exchanges going with these conversation pieces and gift items. 
Gracing the campaign are the Solo Online Model Search 2013 winners Renee Soraya Hassani and John Edward Custodio who stood out among almost a hundred hopeful ladies and gents! The pair got to do a photo shoot with fashion photographer Doc Marlon.
In line with the collection launch, Solo will be having a book signing tour with Pol Medina Jr. himself(!!!) on the following dates and branches:

September 13 - The Row, Glorietta 1 at 12:30-2:30pm
September 20 - Solo, Festival Mall at 12:30-2:30pm
September 27 - Solo, TriNoma at 12:30-2:30pm
