|Pilipino Komiks #87 - Art by Nestor Redondo|
Since her debut in the very first Darna serial in Pilipino Komiks (1950-51), the snake-haired Valentina has been one of the great Filipina superheroine's most enduring foes. A frequent antagonist in the many film and television adaptations through the years, the tragic Serpent Queen returned to the comic pages when Mango Comics launched their 3-issue English-language Darna revival in 2003. Below are some selected images of Valentina (and Darna's in there somewhere, too) from that mini-series.
