What is a COMIC BOOK?
A comic book is a magazine or book containing the sequential art in the
form of a narrative. Comic books are often called comics for short.
Although the term implies otherwise, the subject matter in comic books is
not necessarily humorous, and in fact its dramatic seriousness varies
widely. The term "comics" in this context does not refer to comic strips
(such as Peanuts or Dilbert). In the early to mid-20th century, greater
acceptance of the comics form among the general reading populace
coincided with a greater usage of the term graphic novel, often meant to
differentiate a book of comics with a spine from its stapled, pamphlet
form, but the difference between the terms seems fuzzy at best as comics
become more widespread in libraries, mainstream bookstores and other

The earliest comic books were simply collections of comic strips that had
originally been printed in newspapers. The commercial success of these
collections led to work being created specifically for the comic-book form,
which fostered specific conventions such as splash pages. Long-form
comic books, generally with hardcover or trade-paper binding came to be
known as graphic novels, but as noted above, the term's definition is
especially fluid. Like jazz and a handful of other cultural artifacts, comic
books are a rare indigenous
American art form.
