Panayam ng MB kay Vic J. Poblete

Nitong nagdaang Miyerkules, lumabas sa Manila Bulletin ang artikulong "Komiks: Ready for a comeback?" ni Therese J. Camet. Nagmula ang malaking bahagi ng artikulo sa panayam kay Vic J. Poblete, isa sa mga popular na dibuhista at nobelista sa komiks. Narito ang ilang bahagi ng artikulo na may kaugnayan sa nobela at/o pagsusulat:

One of his [Poblete's] best works was the "Devil Car," which won as the Best Fantasy Novel in KOMOPEB Awards in 1985.

"Mas madali para sa’kin magsulat kaysa magdrawing," says Vic, adding that he found it easier to write than to draw.

One of the most in-demand comic novelists at that time along with Pablo Gomez, Jim Fernandez, Elena Patron, Nerissa Cabral, Hal Santiago, Gilda Olvidado, Vincent Kua, and Carlo Caparas, Vic penned over 200 serialized komiks novels and hundreds of short stories in both Filipino and English, 13 of which have been turned into movies. Among these were "Shanghai Joe" and "Dancing Masters" in the 70s and "Black Magic," a fantasy–comedy flick in the 80s with Dolphy and ZsaZsa Padilla.
