The helpful hand of comics

Reading is important. Not only does it expand your knowledge and your vocabulary but it also improves memory, develops strong analytical skills, and improves brain connectivity and function. It is necessary to create a strong mind in our young. Unfortunately most kids don’t latch on to books willingly and that’s where comic books have a good part to play. Not… Read more →

Occam’s Razor

The definition of what a comic is, the “juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence, intended to convey information and/or produce an aesthetic response in the viewer” seems a bit too much. I mean, I’ve looked up what other people’s definitions for comics were and either they were similar to that, using similar words or trying way too hard… Read more →

The Survival of Comics

No one can tell the future. People can attempt to alter their future, they can guess at what the future will hold, but no one can say without a doubt what the future will hold. However, by analyzing trends and using math, a person could have a pretty good idea on what the outcome will be for things like certain… Read more →

The most Futile thing in the World

Old Roots and Modern Tastes

Every culture has its old romantic hero. To name a few, Japan has its samurai, Europe has the Viking, and America has its cowboy. Although they all have their unique and interesting traits, the American hero stands a little bit apart from the rest. What makes the cowboy different is that he doesn’t fight for a lord, government, or silver.… Read more →

The Watchmen comic, in the beginning, caused my mind to be conflicted. On the one hand I wanted to stop reading it after the first couple of pages. The content was depressing and the imagery was grosser than I originally thought it needed to be. Books like that usually put me off because half the time I feel like the… Read more →

Affecting the Mind one Color at a Time

To have color or not to have color, that is the question. Most comic writers choose the former in this day and age and there are even more companies that think it is their job to color the once uncolored. Is this really an improvement? What does color add? Some readers believe that having color distracts from the artistry and… Read more →

Representation of all Sides

The author did his best to give every aspect of city life fair representation in the story “Die Stadt”. He shows this from the very first picture of a man sitting on a hill, looking towards the city. I believe that that man is the author trying to picture his city with none of the normal editing people do to… Read more →
