What are Comics?

A comic is defined as one picture or a sequence of pictures created for amusement and showing a narrative. There are a wide range of ideas of a comic. So much so that it is hard to get a definitive answer to that question. Let's break things down into essential pieces:

What you find in a comic:

  • One image or a sequence of images, usually drawn by hand or digitally
  • A story or message in one or more panels
  • Use of speech bubbles, captions, and onomatopoeia
  • Purpose of brief humor or a short narrative

Here at Storyboard That, we love comics! Comics are fun. They are a form of expression that are easy to make and easy to understand. The visual aspect makes a big difference in shared understanding and communication.

Comics have been around for a long time. Storytelling with pictures can be seen throughout history. Evidence points to ancient Rome with the example of Trajan's Column, Hieroglyphs in Egypt, and other examples of side-by-side pictures seen throughout ancient times. Translations of the Bible were depicted with pictures instead of words due to illiteracy!

The history of comics is very different based on what country you want to focus on. One thing that boosted the rise in comics is the advent of the printing press. After images could be added easily, mass media allowed comics to flourish with the ability to have regular spacing between words, speech bubbles, and then finally publishing of weekly comics. Many say Ally Sloper's Half Holiday as the first comic published with a recurring character.

From there, comic strips and comic books entered the mass media market with classics including Adventures of Tintin, The Dandy, and The Beano.

Today, comics are now super simple to create even if you are not an artist!
