'Juan Malimanga' to live on

Posted: Updated:

by Janjeera Hail

Students at the island's institution of higher learning are breathing some new life into a Guam institution of another variety, as UOG art and Chamorro students will be creating new experiences for the beloved local comic strip 'Juan Malimanga'.

The strip has run in the Pacific Daily News for almost three decades, and with the input of students and faculty, will continue to live on with new adventures, comedy and lessons about the Chamorro culture and language.

Sandy Gould Yow is the daughter of the comic's legendary creator, Cotilde Castro Gould.

According to Gould, "My mom is looking at all this with tremendous joy knowing she will be helping to further a student's education in the arts or Chamorro studies, knowing that she's helping keeping the language alive and knowing that her beloved Juan Malimanga has a new home."
