Are comics making a comeback?

In previous years, comic book readers could often expect their favorite heroes and villains to appear in a large graphic novel (OGN). With the upcoming reunion of Spawn and Batman in this format, it could be time to give graphic novels the return they deserve. Over the past decade, we've seen a massive shift in pop culture. The idea of powers, superheroes, fandoms and fantasies has come to the fore more than ever, especially when you consider how much the perception of reading comics, reading manga, playing video games, etc.

Marvel has generally sold more and DC has always been the no. Thanks to their medium-length format, these graphic novels are cheaper than collected softcover books, but they also offer readers more stories than a single number of comics without breaking the bank. Of course, the reach of a comic book, even the most successful comics, can never diminish the reach of a blockbuster like Batman v Superman or even a television series like Agents of SHIELD. With better digital availability, comedixology sucks to the point of giving up buying comics in general.

One thing about comics is that nothing matters, Joker War I expected something else. I thought they were going to keep the Joker out permanently, no, he escaped. Don spent much of his youth reading Chris Claremont's series about The Uncanny X-Men titles and the Amazing Spider-Man comics at Fat Jack's Comic Crypt in North Philadelphia. Destiny, a well-known adversary of X-Men, is just one example of a comic book character who breaks the mold of sexy strictly straight characters.

It is important to analyze a broader history of comics beyond the last few months and the recent news series that defend diversity. The 1990s saw an increase in the publication and visibility of this format by many prominent comic book publishers. This progressive change goes hand in hand with the appearance of the “Black Panther” comics and comics for a cause that is also exciting. Since first appearances are often the most important factor for comic book investors, that's one of the reasons to invest their money elsewhere.

The comic book industry, punctuated by deficits and falling engagement in recent years, has seen a massive increase in readership since the launch of these blockbusters. Despite factors such as the high sales of graphic novels and the usual trend of reducing sales in January, as fewer numbers of comics are published, the 300 best comics of the month sold around 6.49 million copies in total. The recent announcement of a Spawn and Batman reunion is likely to become a box office hit in the world of comic book collectors. On the other hand, the focus of oversized comics has shifted to anthologies of shorter stories or oversized miniseries, which do not utilize the strengths of striking graphic novels.
