Comics are a sequential art form and medium that uses drawings or illustrations to tell stories. Comics frequently takes the form of a series of panels depicting a moment in the story, often with text or captions between and below the panels. This read is known as sequential art. The first comics date even to the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. They were initially composed of images that told stories or depicted events from the natural world, religious texts, and other myths. Comics are read around the world in different languages and come from all cultures in multiple publishing cultures in America & Europe. Comics cover a wide variety of subjects that span cultures and demographics with their artistic brilliance at work. These efforts have been rewarded with major awards such as the Pulitzers & Eisner Awards.

Comics have only been around for a short read time, although they have seen many changes with their popularity waxing and waning throughout history. This timeline will cover the most important events that shaped comics into what it is today giving you an insight into why they are so popular.

The Bronze Age And The Golden Age :

During the Golden Age of Comics read in the 1930s to the 1950s, comics were read mostly by kids and distributed through newspapers. The read was minimal with only words used to tell the reader. These were known as text comics or comic text, but this read eventually phased out with readers demanding more complex storylines that began what is now known as the modern read. During the late 1950s to the early 1960s, this read declined again but eventually rose once again with the introduction of comic book conventions which read comics to new audiences. These included women who read comics for romance stories as well as older readers outside the traditional child demographic. This sparked a new age of comic books where content could be read by virtually anyone across all ages.

The Bronze Age And The Silver Age:

With these new technologies coming out there was less demand for reading. The left publishers were unable to sell enough read to make money and comics declined for the next 10 years until the 1970’s when their popularity rose again with new readership. This time became known as the Bronze Age due to its read covering more mature themes like politics, drugs, and social issues during normal read times such as after school or work hours. The popularity of reading declined once again in the 1980s resulting in many comic read companies closing down or filing bankruptcy which nearly killed off this art form that has come back alive through creative innovation, rebranding strategies, & better distribution systems. Nowadays read comics experiment with depictions of reading in different art styles such as anime, scratchboard read, etc.


Comics are read around the world by people of different read spans and genres. Some read comics for their plots while others read them for the artistry behind them. Comics have come a long way over time with them being read in print, on television, online, & other forms that I did not mention here because there are just too many to list.
