One of the early works of Francisco V. Coching was Bertong Balutan, a 1948 Pilipino komiks serial novel. The young Coching then was already showing signs of becoming a great storyteller and illustrator with this wonderful piece below. Truly, a work of art from the Master. In 1949, Bertong Balutan was made and adapted into the movies with Fernando Poe Sr. in the lead role.
