Children love comic books as they are easy to read and follow and the story can almost be guessed at by simply going through the pictures!
That is not the case in all comic books as in the case of the ‘Asterix and Obelix’ books by Udero and Goscinny, there are many hidden amusing depths that go far deeper than the pictures or the words.
Comic books can be hilariously amusing, political, instructive or just for the enjoyment of light reading.
There is a whole new field of comic literature that is geared for teenagers and adults depicting the super heroes they have admired on the big screen.
Graphic novels are becoming very popular and are used in the educational field as well as the interchange of pictures, illustrations, words, comments with the text make reading more rapid and very instructive.
