Rex Ravelo, son of the Darna comics creator, Mars Ravelo, plans on putting his rare of the comics on display in a museum.

Rex Ravelo has given the media a glimpse into his very own private collection of various Filipino comic books, including the well-preserved pages of Komiks #77. This particular issue features the first edition of Darna.

Pilipino Komiks #77 was published in May 1950. The Darna series follows the story of a seemingly ordinary woman, Narda, who accidentally discovers a very small meteorite that has the power to transform her into the superheroine we have come to love to this day.

Rex Ravelo wishes to display this rare copy of the issue as well as other Filipino comics that have become legendary pieces in a museum in Tagaytay. The goal is to inspire enthusiasts and comic art fans alike to continue loving the local comics industry and its iconic characters.

In other news, a movie remake of Darna is in the works, but Star Cinema and filmmaker Erik Matti are still in search for the successor, after the original pick Angel Locsin had vacated the position due to a spine injury.

Who do you think it will be? The youngsters Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano or Nadine Lustre? Or the more mature actresses Maja Salvador, Arci Munoz, Yassi Pressman or Pia Wurtzbach?
