Noted cartoonist, the late Larry Alcala (creator of Kalabog and Bosyo and Siopawman) made this rough sketch of Asiong Aksaya when I asked for his autograph during one of his visits in my shop.
Sometime in the seventies Larry Alcala created a comic strip to promote awareness on energy-saving. Asiong Aksaya became popular because of his waldas way of using electricity, gasoline, water and other available energy. It has been made into a movie three times, which starred the comedian Chiquito. Likewise, it has been adapted into a television series in 1977
