Every year, SOLO gives a tribute to Pinoy Pop Culture with its homegrown Pinoy cartoonist. And this year they proudly features Tonton Young's Pupung.
How do you best remember Pupung?
It could be his family's lugawan and their hilarious adventures that reflects the typical Pinoy family. Pupung is a lovable kid in the comics created by Tonton Young in 1983. The strip 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. Up to this day, Pupung appears from strip, Mommy, Daddy, Lolo Dom, Day, Jordan, Lelong, and Larry Bird will be immortalized in a pop collection.
As Pupung put in on His&Hers graphic tees, popular varsity jackets, polo shirts, woven tops, and dresses, men's longs sleeves and shorts and adorable accessories such as necklace, toilety pouches and coffe ceramic cups with covers. The collection hits the stores this August! Perfectly for fun wearable as Christmas gifts. To view the entire Men's collection, click here and Ladies collection, click here.
