How much of a story can you tell using comics? Most people read and view stories through books and don’t know about the power of comics. Just because a story isn’t told using a book doesn’t mean a story can be told at all.
The world changes and so does the style and the medium of reading and telling information. The world has changed from using only books to telling stories to a series of pictures, detailed or not, to educating the mind. Many people are shocked by the power of how pictures and words combined, yet just pictures, can educate ones mind from being totally blind of the subject.
Comics today have “become part of an expanding literary field, absorbing and redirecting the ideological, formal, and creative energies of contemporary fiction” (Chete and Dekoven 768). Yes, it’s true! Comics are starting to be used more and more as days go on. From simply telling Batman’s adventures to making fun of politics and instigating the public, comics are widely used today to show the society of the welfare of the nation and the installments of the Bat cave.
Think about it. How fun would it be to have read the whole Batman story if one had to read it through a book filled with only words? With comics, it’s much easier to be able to read the story without losing interest and thought of what may be happening. With comics, one see the “bam” and “booms” that happen every second of the fight while feeling like he or she was watching it from the sideline.
Comics not only evolved the style of reading but also evolved the human mind and for some, made it more fun to read.
