Comic books are part of pop culture. They are a type of magazine that shows a serialized story in the form of a hand-drawn comic strip. Comic books became very popular in the 1940s because they were cheap, portable and good entertainment, especially for children. Comics often narrate stories of good triumphing over evil, and reflect the values of the time. Captain America, a famous comic book hero, was created to reflect the USA’s war effort during WWII. Marvel Comics are probably the most famous comic book franchise of all time.
