The Best of Mang Ambo

The Best of Mang Ambo, Books 1 and 2
Larry Alcala

People my age or older best remember Larry Alcala for his newspaper cartoon in the 1980s to 90s called Slice of Life. It was one of those things I looked forward to in the newspaper...to look for Larry Alcala's face in the day's Slice of Life. I was pleasantly surprised to find books by Larry Alcala. The books are not compilations of his Slice of Life cartoons, but of his Mang Ambo comic strips. The comic strips depict barrio life. So relatable, it often made me smile. These comic strips were from the 1960s, but the stories presented in the comic strips transcend time.

PS. The books are available from New Day Publishers.
