I’m not much of a comic person. But one comic that I really liked was Wasted by Gerry Alanguilan. I was in my early teens when I saw it at a shop selling magazines and comic books near our place. It was over the top, but I liked it. Mr. Gerry Alanguilan is really nice too. I have a friend who liked ‘Wasted’ so much, I wanted to give her a copy as a gift but I had trouble finding one. I emailed Mr. Gerry, and he did replied, and even promised to reserve a signed copy for me at some local event (though for some reason, I didn’t go).
You can read it online (it’s in English) here:
Or if you prefer reading it in other formats, Mr. Gerry is kind enough to also post them here:

i revisited san agustin church this morning (2012.01.19). unfortunately, i wasn’t able to go into the corridors again but the place essentially ‘felt’ the same — aged. i took some more pictures and hopefully i’ll be able to post it here soon.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take it’s place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
