About this Item

Neuware - An American comic book is a small magazine originating in the United States and containing a narrative in the form of comics. The standard dimensions (since 1975) are 17 x 26 cm (6 ' × 10 '), although they were larger in the past. Since the invention of this comic book format in the 1934, the United States has produced the most examples, with only the British comic books (during the inter-war period and up until the 1970s) and the Japanese manga as close competitors in terms of quantity. Comic book sales began to decline after World War II, when the medium had to face competition with the spread of television and mass market paperback books. Confirming the trend, mass media researchers in the period found comic-book reading among children with television sets in homes 'drastically reduced'.[1] In the 1960s, comic books' audience expanded to include college students who favored the naturalistic, 'superheroes in the real world' trend initiated by Stan Lee at Marvel Comics. 484 pp. Englisch.
