What Is A Comic Book?:


The word "comic" has many meanings. It can be a comedian, a newspaper cartoon strip, or even a full blown graphic novel. Generally speaking, when referring to comic books you are talking about a story told through sequential art.

Comics have been around for quite some time - some even comparing cave art and hieroglyphics as the first comics. Comics have had a wonderful and colorful history and have flourished in America.
