Abstract Comics are first known as a simple reading material that entertains because of the amusing pictures and the conversations between characters. However, reading it critically shows that it does not only offer entertainment and amusement. Comics are instruments in the presentation of different social and political issues. Using the eight-volume compilation of Pugad Baboy comic strips of Pol Medina, Jr., these comic strips project the different socio-political pictures of the Philippines. The study shows that the comic strips of Pugad Baboy are projections of the Filipino populace from the highest character to the lowest in the different social institutions such as home, school, government, and church.
