|04.08.2016 – Darna has been Filipino icon in comicbook culture for more than six decades having adopted into movies and television, but it has been more than 11 years since the last comicbook was published in mainstream.
This is not including the unofficial web comic in 2011 by Gerry Alanguilan and Arnold Arre depicting the heroine inspired by Frank Miller’s ‘Dark Knight Returns’ style narrative and that was it until Carljoe Javier teased this image on social media…
Some have commented on Carljoe’s post on Facebook having inspiration from Marvel’s Kamala Khan or DC’s recent Batgirl. Taking an iconic Filipino comicbook character in representing a new look has stirred up interest.
