Sample text

In the 1940s and 1950s, hundreds of articles about comics were published in trade, academic, professional, and popular periodicals. Earlier analyses of this literature (Nyberg, 1998; Nyberg, 2002; Ellis and Highsmith, 2000) found that while comic books had their defenders among teachers and librarians, their predominant view of comics was unfavorable. Articles generally fell into one of three categories. First there were those written by educators who drew on their personal experience, often offering details of activities or experiments in which they used comics as a stepping-stone to introduce children to more desirable reading.

These are the closest domestic antecedents of today’s manga.
