Comics are a medium used to express ideas via images, often combined with text or other visual information. A comic book frequently takes the form of juxtaposed sequences of panels of images and often textual devices such as speech balloons, captions and onomatopoeia indicate dialogue.

The history of comics has followed divergent paths in different cultures. 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.

Watch the story about some of the most popular comic book characters, their origin and the complexity of the characters themselves. Probably the most interesting ones are the super heroes. Learn about the characters behind their masks, what influenced their creation and shaped their personality.
