In 1971, DC Comics editor-in-chief Carmine Infantino and editor Joe Orlando traveled to the Philippines on a recruiting trip for artists. Amongo, Alfredo Alcala, Ernie Chan, Alex Niño, Nestor Redondo, and Gerry Talaoc were some of the Filipino artists who went on to work for DC, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s.
