4.3.4.4. Comics

A comic is a form of cartooning in which the same cast of characters enacts a story in a sequence of closely related drawings designed to entertain the reader. Unlike the cartoon, the comic consists of continuing story situations. Most comic-book series have turned into straight picture stories in strip or pamphlet forms. The use of cartoons capitalizes on the fact that young readers enjoy picture stories, the comic books employ the use of visual materials possibly in color. Many historical, scientific and literary subjects can be represented well and accurately in comic book forms.
