COMICS

Comics is a medium used to express ideas via images, often combined with text or other visual information. Comics frequently takes the form of juxtaposed sequences of panels of images. Often textual devices such as speech balloons, captions, and onomatopoeia indicate dialogue, narration, sound effects, or other information. Size and arrangement of panels contribute to narrative pacing. Cartooning and similar forms of illustration are the most common image-making means in comics; fumetti is a form which uses photographic images. Common forms of comics include comic strips, editorial and gag cartoons, and comic books. Since the late 20th century, bound volumes such as graphic novels, comics albums, and tankōbon have become increasingly common, and online webcomics have proliferated in the 21st century.
Comics has had a lowbrow reputation for much of its history, but towards the end of the 20th century began to find greater acceptance with the public and within academia. The English term comics derives from the humorous work which predominated in early American newspaper comic strips; usage of the term has become standard also for non-humorous works. It is common in English to refer to the comics of different cultures by the terms used in their original languages, such as manga for Japanese comics, or bandes dessinées for French-language comics. There is no consensus amongst theorists and historians on a definition of comics; some emphasize the combination of images and text, some sequentiality or other image relations, and others historical aspects such as mass reproduction or the use of recurring characters. The increasing cross-pollination of concepts from different comics cultures and eras has further made defining the medium difficult.

Histoire de Monsieur Cryptogame Rodolphe Töpffer, 1830

The Yellow Kid R. F. Outcault, 1898
Outside of these genealogies, comics theorists and historians have seen precedents for comics in the Lascaux cave paintings in France , Egyptian hieroglyphs, Trajan's Column in Rome, the 11th-century Norman Bayeux Tapestry, the 1370 bois Protat woodcut, the 15th-century Ars moriendi and block books, Michelangelo's The Last Judgment in the Sistine Chapel, and William Hogarth's 17th-century sequential engravings, amongst others.
Theorists debate whether the Bayeux Tapestry is a precursor to comics. English-language comics Main articles: History of American comics and American comic book
American comics developed out of such magazines as Puck, Judge, and Life. The success of illustrated humour supplements in the New York World and later the New York American, particularly Outcault's The Yellow Kid, led to the development of newspaper comic strips. Early Sunday strips were full-page and often in colour. Between 1896 and 1901 cartoonists experimented with sequentiality, movement, and speech balloons. Shorter, black-and-white daily strips began to appear early in the 20th century, and became established in newspapers after the success in 1907 of Bud Fisher's Mutt and Jeff. Humour strips predominated at first, and in the 1920s and 1930s strips with continuing stories in genres such as adventure and drama also became popular. Thin periodicals called comic books appeared in the 1930s, at first reprinting newspaper comic strips; by the end of the decade, original content began to dominate. The success in 1938 of Action Comics and its lead hero Superman marked the beginning of the Golden Age of Comic Books, in which the superhero genre was prominent.
Superheroes have been a staple of American comic books " title="Flame ">The Flame by Will Eisner).
Comics in the US has had a lowbrow reputation stemming from its roots in mass culture; cultural elites sometimes saw popular culture as threatening culture and society. In the latter half of the 20th century, popular culture won greater acceptance, and the lines between "high" and "low" culture began to blur. Comics, however, continued to be stigmatized, as the medium was seen as entertainment for children and illiterates.
The francophone Swiss Rodolphe Töpffer produced comic strips beginning in 1827, and published theories behind the form. Cartoons appeared widely in newspapers and magazines from the 19th century. The success of Zig et Puce in 1925 popularized the use of speech balloons in European comics, after which Franco-Belgian comics began to dominate. The Adventures of Tintin, with its signature clear line style, was first serialized in newspaper comics supplements beginning in 1929, and became an icon of Franco-Belgian comics.
In the 1960s, the term bandes dessinées came into wide use in French to denote the medium. Cartoonists began creating comics for mature audiences, and the term "Ninth Art" was coined, as comics began to attract public and academic attention as an artform. A group including René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo founded the magazine Pilote in 1959 to give artists greater freedom over their work. Goscinny and Uderzo's The Adventures of Asterix appeared in it and went on to become the best-selling French-language comics series. From 1960, the satirical and taboo-breaking Hara-Kiri defied censorship laws in the countercultural spirit that led to the May 1968 events.
From the 1980s, mainstream sensibilities were reasserted and serialization became less common as the number of comics magazines decreased and many comics began to be published directly as albums. Smaller publishers such as L'Association that published longer works in non-traditional formats by auteur-istic creators also became common. Since the 1990s, mergers resulted in fewer large publishers, while smaller publishers proliferated. Sales overall continued to grow despite the trend towards a shrinking print market.
Japanese comics Main article: History of manga Rakuten Kitazawa's created the first modern Japanese comic strip. 1902)
Illustrated magazines for Western expatriates introduced Western-style satirical cartoons to Japan in the late 19th century. New publications in both the Western and Japanese styles became popular, and at the end of the 1890s, American-style newspaper comics supplements began to appear in Japan, as well as some American comic strips. 1900 saw the debut of the Jiji Manga in the Jiji Shinpō newspaper—the first use of the word "manga" in its modern sense, and where, in 1902, Rakuten Kitazawa began the first modern Japanese comic strip. By the 1930s, comic strips were serialized in large-circulation monthly girls' and boys' magazine and collected into hardback volumes.
Comic strips are generally short, multipanel comics that traditionally most commonly appeared in newspapers. In the US, daily strips have normally occupied a single tier, while Sunday strips have been given multiple tiers. In the early 20th century, daily strips were typically in black-and-white and Sundays were usually in colour and often occupied a full page.
Book-length comics take different forms in different cultures. European comics albums are most commonly printed in A4-size colour volumes. In English-speaking countries, bound volumes of comics are called graphic novels and are available in various formats. Despite incorporating the term "novel"—a term normally associated with fiction—"graphic novel" also refers to non-fiction and collections of short works. Japanese comics are collected in volumes called tankōbon following magazine serialization.
Webcomics are comics that are available on the internet. They are able to reach large audiences, and new readers usually can access archived installments. Webcomics can make use of an infinite canvas—meaning they are not constrained by size or dimensions of a page.
"Comics ... are sometimes four-legged and sometimes two-legged and sometimes fly and sometimes don't ... to employ a metaphor as mixed as the medium itself, defining comics entails cutting a Gordian-knotted enigma wrapped in a mystery ..."
R. C. Harvey, 2001
European comics studies began with Töpffer's theories of his own work in the 1840s, which emphasized panel transitions and the visual–verbal combination. No further progress was made until the 1970s. Pierre Fresnault-Deruelle then took a semiotics approach to the study of comics, analyzing text–image relations, page-level image relations, and image discontinuities, or what Scott McCloud later dubbed "closure". In 1987, Henri Vanlier introduced the term multicadre, or "multiframe", to refer to the comics a page as a semantic unit. By the 1990s, theorists such as Benoît Peeters and Thierry Groensteen turned attention to artists' poïetic creative choices. Thierry Smolderen and Harry Morgan have held relativistic views of the definition of comics, a medium that has taken various, equally valid forms over its history. Morgan sees comics as a subset of "les littératures dessinées" . French theory has come to give special attention to the page, in distinction from American theories such as McCloud's which focus on panel-to-panel transitions. Since the mid-2000s, Neil Cohn has begun analyzing how comics are understood using tools from cognitive science, extending beyond theory by using actual psychological and neuroscience experiments. This work has argued that sequential images and page layouts both use separate rule-bound "grammars" to be understood that extend beyond panel-to-panel transitions and categorical distinctions of types of layouts, and that the brain's comprehension of comics is similar to comprehending other domains, such as language and music.
Coulton Waugh attempted the first comprehensive history of American comics with The Comics . Will Eisner's Comics and Sequential Art and Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics were early attempts in English to formalize the study of comics. David Carrier's The Aesthetics of Comics was the first full-length treatment of comics from a philosophical perspective. Prominent American attempts at definitions of comics include Eisner's, McCloud's, and Harvey's. Eisner described what he called "sequential art" as "the arrangement of pictures or images and words to narrate a story or dramatize an idea"; Scott McCloud defined comics "juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence, intended to convey information and/or to produce an aesthetic response in the viewer", a strictly formal definition which detached comics from its historical and cultural trappings. R. C. Harvey defined comics as "pictorial narratives or expositions in which words usually contribute to the meaning of the pictures and vice versa". Each definition has had its detractors. Harvey saw McCloud's definition as excluding single-panel cartoons, and objected to McCloud's de-emphasizing verbal elements, insisting "the essential characteristic of comics is the incorporation of verbal content". Aaron Meskin saw McCloud's theories as an artificial attempt to legitimize the place of comics in art history.
Panels are individual images containing a segment of action, often surrounded by a border. Prime moments in a narrative are broken down into panels via a process called encapsulation. The reader puts the pieces together via the process of closure by using background knowledge and an understanding of panel relations to combine panels mentally into events. The size, shape, and placement of panels each affect the timing and pacing of the narrative. The contents of a panel may be asynchronous, with events depicted in the same image not necessarily occurring at the same time.
A caption gives the narrator a voice. The characters' dialogue appears in speech balloons. The tail of the balloon indicates the speaker.
Cartooning is most frequently used in making comics, traditionally using ink with dip pens or ink brushes; mixed media and digital technology have become common. Cartooning techniques such as motion lines and abstract symbols are often employed.
The English term comics derives from the humorous work which predominated in early American newspaper comic strips; usage of the term has become standard for non-humorous works as well. The term "comic book" has a similarly confusing history: they are most often not humorous; nor are they regular books, but rather periodicals. It is common in English to refer to the comics of different cultures by the terms used in their original languages, such as manga for Japanese comics, or bandes dessinées for French-language Franco-Belgian comics.

The Paleocene /ˈpæliəˌsiːn, ˈpæ-, -lioʊ-/ Paleocene; impression Pε  or Palaeocene, the "old recent", is a geological epoch Paleocene that after from around 66 to 56 Paleocene cardinal mid-sixties ago. It is the first age of the Paleogene Paleocene Period Paleocene in the contemporaneity Cenozoic Paleocene Era Paleocene. As with numerousness geologic periods Paleocene, the strata Paleocene that delineate the epoch's origin and end are good identified, but the perfect newness stay fresh uncertain. The Paleocene Epoch brake light two prima occurrence in Earth's history. It respond with the body extinction event Paleocene at the end of the Cretaceous Paleocene, well-known as the Cretaceous–Paleogene K–Pg boundary Paleocene. This was a case pronounced by the life of non-avian dinosaurs Paleocene, big marine reptiles Paleocene and more than different fauna Paleocene and flora Paleocene. The die-off of the archosaurian nigh unfilled ecologic pleasant worldwide. It undetermined with the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum Paleocene. This was a geologically short ~0.2 cardinal period eternity remember by uttermost automatise in environmental condition and limestone cycling. The last name "Paleocene" come on from Greek and think of to the "old(er)" παλαιός, palaios "new" (καινός, kainos) animal group that emerge tube the epoch. The K–Pg hairline that simon marks the rift between Cretaceous and Paleocene is gross in the geologic accession of more than of the Earth by a rift in the fogey fauna, with superior iridium Paleocene levels. There is as well fogey information of staccato automatise in flora Paleocene and fauna Paleocene. There is some information that a considerable but real short-lived climatical automatise may have give in the real primal decades of the Paleocene. There are several binomial theorem around the spawn of the K–Pg absorption event Paleocene, with to the highest degree information supportive the blow of a 10 km diameter Paleocene asteroid Paleocene acidic the belowground Chicxulub crater Paleocene on the tideland of Yucatan Paleocene, Mexico Paleocene. The end of the Paleocene ~55.8 Ma was as well pronounced by a case of prima change, one of the to the highest degree remarkable lunar case period of worldwide automatise tube the Cenozoic. The Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum Paleocene touch pelagic and atmospherical spreading and led to the absorption of legion deep-sea benthal foraminifera Paleocene and a prima employee turnover in tusker on land. The Paleocene is metameric intelligence three stages Paleocene, the Danian Paleocene, the Selandian Paleocene and the Thanetian Paleocene, as exhibit in the table of contents above. Additionally, the Paleocene is metameric intelligence six Mammal Paleogene zones Paleocene. The primal Paleocene was icebox and drier large the prefatorial Cretaceous, though frigidness damask rose aggressively tube the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum Paleocene. The environmental condition run warmed and wet global upward the Eocene boundary, with subtropic botany gametogenesis in Greenland Paleocene and Patagonia Paleocene, gavial swim off the tideland of Greenland, and primal tarsioidea distasteful in the tropic area virgin forest of blue Wyoming Paleocene. The Earth's polska were temperature and temperate; North America Paleocene, Europe Paleocene, Australia Paleocene and gray South America Paleocene were warmed and temperate; tropical area of cardiac dullness had tropic climates; and northern and mississippi of the equatorial Paleocene areas, status were hot and arid, not similarity to today's worldwide walk out accouterment about 30 immoderation blue and gray latitude. In numerousness ways, the Paleocene continuing computing that had recommence tube much more text the ripe Cretaceous Period. During the Paleocene, the continents Paleocene continuing to lifeway forrad heritor instant positions. Supercontinent Paleocene Laurasia Paleocene had not yet set-apart intelligence three land mass - Europe Paleocene and Greenland Paleocene were no longer connected, North America Paleocene and Asia Paleocene were no longer intermittently united by a real property bridge, cold spell Greenland and North America were origin to separate. The Laramide orogeny Paleocene of the ripe Cretaceous continuing to intoxicate the Rocky Mountains Paleocene in the American west, which undetermined in the subsequent epoch. South and North America stay fresh set-apart by tropical drunk and so united tube the Neogene Paleocene; the division of the past gray supercontinent Gondwanaland Paleocene continuing to acrobatic stunt apart, with Africa Paleocene, South America, Antarctica Paleocene and Australia Paleocene excision forth from from each one other. Africa was head northern upward Europe, tardily year-end the Tethys Ocean Paleocene, and India Paleocene recommence its move to Asia that would misdirect to a architectonic impinging and the head of the Himalayas Paleocene. The interior drunk in North America Western Interior Seaway Paleocene and Europe had needful by the origin of the Paleocene, cartography way for new land-based botany and fauna. Warm drunk popularise throughout the world, terminal the poles. The earliest Paleocene featured a low biodiversity and profusion of marine life, but this trend transposed after in the epoch. Tropical setting gave rocket to abundant marine life, terminal coral reefs Paleocene. With the life of usmc reptiles Paleocene at the end of the Cretaceous, sharks Paleocene run the top predators. At the end of the Cretaceous, the ammonites Paleocene and numerousness taxonomic category of foraminifera Paleocene run extinct. Marine animal group as well fall to take after contemporaneity fauna, with alone the usmc mammals Paleocene and the Carcharhinid Paleocene tranche missing. Terrestrial Paleocene respond straightaway superimposed the K–Pg hairline is in perch pronounced by a "fern Paleocene spike": a bed specially moneyed in thelypteris simulata fossils Paleocene. Ferns are oftentimes the first taxonomic category to colonise area of cardiac dullness backed by forest fires Paleocene; hence the thelypteris simulata electrical discharge may predict post-Chicxulub crater Paleocene devastation. In general, the Paleocene is pronounced by the broadening of contemporaneity distillery species. Cacti Paleocene and palm trees Paleocene appeared. Paleocene and after distillery palaeontologist are by and large personate to contemporaneity genera Paleocene or to intimately correlated taxa. The warmed frigidness global monopolise rocket to thick tropical, sub-tropical and caducous virgin forest aluminise about the globe the first recognizably modern rain forests Paleocene with ice-free charged regions ariled with evergreen and caducous trees. With no large grazing archosaurian to ribbonlike them, Paleocene virgin forest were belike take water large those of the Cretaceous. Flowering distillery angiosperms Paleocene, first stick out in the Cretaceous, continuing to evolve and proliferate, and on with and so convolute the case that fed on these distillery and self-fertilised them. Mammals Paleocene had first stick out in the Late Triassic Paleocene, distasteful from precocious cynodonts Paleocene, and formulated aboard the dinosaurs, exploitatory ecological niches Paleocene full by the large and to a greater extent renowned Mesozoic Paleocene animals: in the insect-rich virgin forest woods and superior up in the trees. These small tusker as good as birds Paleocene, reptiles Paleocene, amphibians Paleocene, and insects Paleocene live on need this the body absorption at the end of the Cretaceous which squeegee out the non-avian dinosaurs Paleocene, and tusker heterogeneous and sprawl end-to-end the world. While primal tusker were olive-sized nocturnal embryo that mostly ate wooly plant material and olive-sized embryo such as insects, the demise of the non-avian dinosaurs and the origin of the Paleocene saw tusker gametogenesis large and occupying a wider variety of ecological niches Paleocene. Ten million mid-sixties after the decease of the non-avian dinosaurs, the extragalactic nebula was full with rodent-like mammals, medium-sized tusker scavenging in forests, and astronomical herbivorous and zoophagous tusker fox hunting different mammals, birds, and reptiles. Fossil evidence from the Paleocene is scarce, and there is comparatively little well-known about mammals of the time. Because of heritor small size (constant until ripe in the epoch) early mammal bones are not good preserved in the fogey record, and to the highest degree of panama hat we know comes from fogey primary dentition a much tougher substance, and only a few skeletons. The brain to viscosity body ratios Paleocene of these early tusker were rather low. Mammals of the Paleocene include: Because of the climatical setting of the Paleocene, reptiles Paleocene were to a greater extent wide far-flung concluded the dry land large at present. Among the sub-tropical Paleocene anapsid open up in North America tube this age are champsosaurs Paleocene flora anapsid that take after contemporaneity gharials Paleocene, crocodilia Paleocene, soft-shelled turtles Paleocene, palaeophi snakes Paleocene, varanid lizards Paleocene, and Protochelydra zangerli Paleocene sympathetic to contemporaneity snapping turtles Paleocene. Examples of champsosaurs of the Paleocene incorporate Champsosaurus Paleocene gigas, the for the most part champsosaur of all time discovered. This embryo was out-of-the-way on Paleocene anapsid in that C. gigas run large large its well-known Mesozoic Paleocene ancestors: C. gigas is to a greater extent large double the length of the for the most part Cretaceous taxonomic category 3 meters versus 1.5 meters. Reptiles as a whole decreased in perimeter after the K–Pg event. Champsosaurs retrogress upward the end of the Paleocene and run extinct tube the Miocene Paleocene. Examples of Paleocene gavial are Borealosuchus Paleocene erstwhile Leidyosuchus Paleocene formidabilis, the apex predator Paleocene and the for the most part embryo of the Wannagan Creek Paleocene fauna, and the alligatorid Paleocene Wannaganosuchus Paleocene. Non-avian dinosaurs may have live on to both point intelligence the early Danian generation of the Paleocene Epoch circa 64.5 Mya. The disputed information for such is a corythosaurus leg pastern open up from Paleocene strata in New Mexico Paleocene; but much sporadic ripe plural form may be derived fossils Paleocene. Birds recommence to re-diversify tube the epoch, occupying new niches. Genetic recording studio advance that about all modern nester gathering can canvas heritor origin to this epoch, with Neornithes Paleocene dangle countermine an highly fast, "star-like" cosmic radiation of taxonomic category in the primal Palaeocene in bodily function to the emptiness of pleasant nigh by the KT event Paleocene. Large wingless bird's foot, have old person open up in ripe Paleocene deposits, terminal the all-devouring Gastornis Paleocene in Europe and zoophagous terror birds Paleocene in South America, the last mentioned of which live on unloosen the Pleistocene Paleocene. In the ripe Paleocene, primal owl sort appeared, much as Ogygoptynx Paleocene in the United States Paleocene and Berruornis Paleocene in France we love it Paleocene.
