That being said, very few people know the history of how these books came to be. It turns out that the first comic strip with multiple panels was created by Rodolphe Topffer, a Swiss artist. And within a decade “The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck” became the first illustrated book. Today there are several illustrated books, and magazines. Two primary players, the Marvel and DC publishing houses have had a healthy rivalry for decades, their respective pantheons of superheroes have inspired generations of people.

However, before you go and shop online, let’s take a look at the different types of comics you can find.
Manga Comics are Japanese comic books and novels. They follow the design patterns that were established in Japan during the early 19th century. For the longest time, Manga was read only by die-hard fans of comics. However, as more and more of these novels started being converted into popular cartoon shows, their demand and popularity grew. Today, popular Manga magazines and shows include Death Note, Dragon Ball, Naruto, and more.
Imagine reading a novel, but instead of trying to fit descriptions of places in your imagination, you can actually see the layout of the scene unfolding in the story. Graphic novels generally have a solid beginning and a conclusive end, and the cartoons they contain add more detail and depth to the stories you are reading. There are several graphic novels available in the market such as “A Contract with God”. This graphic novel was probably one of the first graphic novels to be published and it comes with a gripping story. Other popular graphic novels include Watchmen, Nimona, Through the Woods, and more.
If you are a millennial or older, then you remember the time when a copy of Chacha Chaudhary or Tinkle or Pinki was your travel companion during overnight train rides. If you ask the older generation, they will tell you that the “Phantom” was the true superhero. There are several Indian comics that are available online.
