A book entitled Komiks: Katha at Guhit ni Francisco V. Coching was given to me last Christmas by my friend Allan Sioson, who got the book from Koko Coching’s family.

Francisco V. Coching was posthumously named as a National Artist for the Visual Arts last 2014. According to Proclamation No. 808, series of 2014, “the works and achievements of Francisco V. Coching has [sic] left a lasting influence on the succeeding generations of younger cartoonists and his comics as popular art has helped forge the practice and consciousness of Filipino as a national language.”
