(1) (Go Down)
There is a misconception in the society of ours that needs to be corrected. Yes, I know there's a dwindling rate in the number of readers in our society, especially among the youth. But here, I'm refering to comic books! Get it?
I think many people assume that comics are for kids and think it's another distraction asides games and the internet. Big No!
1. Fun To Read
They are fun to read. Really, it’s as simple as that.
The general reason for picking up a comic book is for the enjoyment. This fact does not discount any other benefits, but rather it enhances them. Imagine the splash of colourful book in your hand!
2. Spark The Imagination
Comics have had unexpected influences on people. It’s amazing, really, when you investigate the folks who have attributed comics to be the influencing factor that led them to success. Actors Nicolas Cage, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas, for example, are comic readers.
Everyone from up and coming fantasy novelists to web designers note the influence that comics had on their chosen career paths. For those who delved into medium that require creativity, a love of comics isn’t surprising. Comics offer readers a world in which ordinary people come to a point where they are able to do extraordinary things. As writers and artist spin tale after tale revolving around these amazing characters.
3. Beautiful Pictures
I had the opportunity to look through our very own Nigerian comic stories: comic republic and I was marvelled.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. This is certainly true with comic books. As a visual medium, the comic industry has produced some of the best artists of our times.
The art draws us in and defines a fantastic world of adventure. A good story line becomes all the more so when the art work pops. We come away wanting more and eagerly anticipating the next issue.
Comics are not just for kids (in fact, some are not for kids at all), but one of the benefits that specifically benefits the young is improved literacy. Comics are a great tool to attract the younger generation to learn more.
5. Swag/ Cool Factor
Who said comics are for nerds? Only in the movies! In reality, the cool and popular kids read comics, too. I usually see comics at the mall and people buy them, like alot. I'm not a nerd, in fact I love fashion and I'm crazy about comic books. See how cool it is?
Tell me what you think!
