For example, Frank Miller’s “Sin City” or “Dark Knight Returns”- was a 4 part mini-series comic book collection that was published as a single volume book.

Manga: Style of comics from Japan beginning in the 18 th century. Widely respected in Japanese culture. Many manga become tv shows or short films. Check out Crunchyroll.com (or App on APPLE tv) The word Manga can be translated as, “humorous pictures.” Japanese Manga is to be read from the right side to the left, opposite of traditional American books. Not only do you read the pages from right to left, but you also read the panels and text from right to left. Manga characters almost always have large eyes, small mouths, and they also usually have abnormal hair color. Manga characters usually show over exaggerated emotions.
Interesting Comic Facts: Stan Lee and artist Don Heck created Iron Man at the height of the Cold War in 1963, when the American people were very much aware of war and its impact on their lives. The Wolverine made his debut in issue 181, way back in 1974, as a Canadian special agent ordered by a government department to capture Hulk and “bring him in.” He was almost named “The Badger” instead of Wolverine! Action Comics put out the first superhero comics as early as 1938, was sold for 2.16 million dollars in 2011 The Comics Code Authority was an organization established in 1954 to make comics more kid-friendly, but in addition to cutting down on violence and gore they also decided to enact an outright ban on werewolves in an attempt to discourage the horror genre.
