The cover page of the comic book shows Roxas saving victims of the super typhoon Yolanda.

A photo of the comic book is making rounds online after author and blogger Katrina Stuart Santiago shared it on her Facebook account. The post quickly became a hot topic on social media with over 2,000 shares as of this writing.

In her post, Santiago pointed out that the said comic book failed to mention how Roxas and the government “messed up rescue, relief and rehabilitation efforts in Samar and Leyte.

Santiago wrote: “I don’t know where the gall and temerity, the kabastusan (rudeness) of this matuwid-na-daan comes from, but apparently none of the things we know about Typhoon Haiyan, none of the stories of those who survived, none of the reports that talked about the inefficiency and insensitivity and lack of compassion of this government, none of that matters.”

Netizen Dale Gozar also aired his negative sentiments towards the comic book depicting Roxas as a hero in the tragedy that claimed almost 10,000 lives in the country in 2013. Gozar even enumerated the failures of Roxas before, during and in the aftermath of typhoon Yolanda.

According to Gozar, the natural calamity caused panic, chaos, looting and 10,000 casualties due to poor knowledge/ research, poor planning/preparation, poor communication, poor/slow response, and poor organization. Gozar also alleged that there were misused emergency funds and pocketed donations for the victims.

“Mar must have thought his presence alone can make things better. And conducting meetings in Tacloban is not risking your life or maybe your life wasn't worth anything Mar Roxas Because you accomplished NOTHING,” Gozar wrote in his post.

Thousands of People died and Mar Roxas think he's a real Super Hero... What is wrong with you? Why boast during debate...
