      In the 1970s, talented artists from the Philippines were uncrowned kings of the comics-and no one drew more or better than Alfredo Alcala! He’s best known in the U.S. for his dreamscape work on Savage Sword of Conan-but wait’ll you get a look at Voltar, the barbarian hero Alcala created before the Cimmerian came to comics! Richard Arndt interviews his sons Alfred and Christian, where you’ll see the best of the Master’s work for Marvel, DC, Warren-and, perhaps most amazingly of all, from his native Philippines, where Alfredo had his own comicbook named after him!
