It is made up of three or four picture panels telling a story with one or more characters. Comic books are extensions of comic strips into magazines. Each magazine is about one set of characters and the pictures tell a complete story. While the first newspaper comic strip appeared in 1892, it was not until 1911 that an entire publication was devoted to comics — a comic book. That year the Chicago American offered reprints of Bud Fisher's "Mutt and Jeff in pamphlet form. The pattern for present-day comics was set much later. In 1935. "New Fun" appeared. It was a 64-page collection of original material in four colors, and was sold at newsstands. In 1938 "Action Comics" appeared, and the "Superman Quarterly Magazine" came out in 1939. Comic books are not all humorous stories. The types of comic books issued include: adventure, animal, biography, detective, fantasy - mystery, history, humor, military, religion, romance, satire, science- fiction, teen-age, and western. Some types, such as adventure and humor, sell better, so there are more of them. However, the popularity of comic books has led all kinds of groups to use comic books to tell a story they want to get to people. Many companies use comic books to tell the story behind a product or ttra history of their company. Comic books are published to explain complicated subjects, to dramatize public needs, or to give the history of a particular event. So "comic books" can be as varied as the subject matter and the purpose behind them. ANSWERS 1. Ouch! 2. My pop is bigger than your pop. 3. Time to get a new fence.
