A comic book or comicbook ,  also called comic magazine or simply comic , is a publication that consists of comics art in the form of sequential juxtaposed panels that represent individual scenes. Panels are often accompanied by descriptive prose and written narrative, usually, dialog contained in word balloons emblematic of the comics art form. Although comics has some origins in 18th century Japan , comic books were first popularized in the United States and the United Kingdom during the s. The first modern comic book, Famous Funnies , was released in the U. The largest comic book market is Japan. Comic books are reliant on their organization and appearance.
DC Comics have come a long way! The heavy-hitting publishing company brought us series like Detective Comics and Action Comics. That's where some of the greatest superheroes ever born were made, like Batman and Superman. Of course, popularity snowballed pretty quickly and a whole new slew of great characters and the first-ever superhero team-up in the Justice League!
By creating an account, you verify that you are at least 13 years of age, and have read and agree to the Comicbook. DC Kids is intended for pre-adolescents and children, while Black Label is the adult brand intended for those 17 years and older. Young adult novels may generally feature adolescent characters, but their themes are every bit as potent and stories every bit as exciting as many superhero stories with an added eye for accessibility. This pivot towards essentially making DC the young adult line is an excellent decision, one that both respects the past and enhances the future.
