Due To Popular Demand:
Let’s face it. We are a generation of visual gratification. We watch movies (a LOT of movies), constantly looking for that awesome big screen or for the best bookshelf speakers that money can buy. All of this because we love the comforts of our own homes. Our phones before only consisted of a small screen and an alphanumeric keypad just to be able to call or send a text message. But now, phone screens get bigger to accommodate our need to be able to see pictures in high-def. So basically, it only goes to show that when we read books, some of us sort of prefer reading stories with pictures with them.
Introducing the comic book. Also known as “comics”, these types of stories are accompanied by comic arts that are arranged in sequential separate panels or boxes that represent individual scenes. Dialogs are also included in the scenes and are usually written in dialog balloons.
Children (and actually a large portion of adults) usually collect comics, either for their reading pleasure, or to just basically boast to their friends that they have the first ever copy of a particular comic book. For them, it is a not just a comic book; it’s a way of life. I actually have friends who keep their stash of rare comic book collections inside a safe which is in a secret door in their room (the books are even still in their original plastic covers too).
You would probably think that comic books are all the same, and are all from the same country. However, countries have their own version of comics with all sorts of stories, ranging from the humorous to the not-so-humorous tone.
Comic books were introduced in the United States with its first ever modern comic book, “Famous Funnies”, in the year 1933. Soon after, the United States has produced the most comic book titles, together with the comic books of other countries like Britain and Japan.
As of the present, American comic books usually portray superheroes that save people from different threats. Some of the most popular comics in the US would include those from Marvel Comics and DC Comics.
Some of the most popular comic books, besides those from the US, would probably be the ones from Japan. Japanese comics, or Manga, have been around since the 18th century. Of course, it’s not like those hilarious mangas of today. The first Japanese comics usually depicted stories about folk tales or historical accounts. Before, they were usually published in black-and-white, unlike now wherein the comics are portrayed with a dazzling array of colors.
In a nutshell, comics may
be a form of entertainment for some, while others consider it as
a part of their daily lives. Different countries have their own
version of the comic book and many others have also integrated
it into their own culture.
Editors Note: I might be opening a blog section soon. I will still keep the vanilla looks of the website, it is just how I and you love it. Thanks to the sponsorship by one great Seattle solar panels provider I will now be able to write a lot of stuff about the comics culture and the anime industry both in Asia and in the US.
P.S: I am thinking about exercising more and I am looking for a good local shop in NY where I could buy one of those $1000 treadmills. If you think you can help me out, please e-mail me.
