ANG MATSING AT ANG PAGONG Cover
WAKASAN KOMIKS #29, Book 2 
July 3, 1978
Mapalad Publishing Corporation
This cover art for Wakasan by Rico Rival came with a batch of Rudy Florese drawn komiks given to me by Val Pabulos (Thanks Val!). At the back of this cover is part 89 of "...at sumanib ang Langis sa Tubig!" written by Marty Gee Aragon and illustrated by Rudy Florese.

I've grown to appreciate Rico Rival's art and this one is an instant favorite as soon as I saw it. I liked it so much that I thought I'd restore it and recolor it. I thought it would make for a nice piece of art if the colors are allowed to shine (colors which were absorbed by the bad paper the cover was printed on), and all the pasted on text (like company logos, price and title) were removed.

Aside from adjusting some skin tone and colors of the guy's shoe, everything is as was originally colored.
