‘The Mythology Class’ and Peryodiko

The 2017 “The Mythology Class” music video featuring “Milenyo” by the Filipino band Peryodiko.

Animated by writer and artist Arnold Arre, who published the graphic novel in 1999.

Making history

A live action film is a work in progress after it was announced in 2015 that Jerrold Tarog of “Heneral Luna” and “Goyo” fame would direct it.

“The Mythology Class” won a Manila Critics Circle National Book Award in 2000, becoming the first to win in the Comic Books category.

In 2019, the sequel “The Children of Bathala” was published on the 20th anniversary of “The Mythology Class”, and was also set 20 years after the events in the first graphic novel.
