National Comic Book Day!
Every year on September 25, comic book readers, collectors, lovers and fans participate in National Comic Book Day.
First popularized in the United States, comic books are also called comic magazines. Published in the form of sequential, juxtaposed panels that represent individual scenes, comic books often include descriptive prose and written narratives. From the earliest comic strips that later gave birth to comic books, dialogue displayed in bubbles or balloons above characters’ heads. The artform weaves intricate designs using all the elements of text, dialogue, personalities, color and imagery to form storylines that over time have distinguished eras, artists, genres and themes.
