    Many years ago I have studied your craft for my thesis in my graduate studies concerning the current development of komiks in our country. Now that I am a teacher, I humbly request to add your short graphic narrative as part of my class in the subject History of Philippine Literature. Given the opportunity to practice my profession with academic freedom, I wish to impart to my students that Literature is not just about written texts anymore but an ever evolving medium. Thank you for inspiring all of us with your imagination.
