Superman went on to become one of the most internationally recognized figures in the world. Since then there have been crime comics, romance comics, science fiction comics, and many other genres; in the 21st century "Graphic Novels" appear on the best seller lists and are reviewed in the nation's leading newspapers. This course will examine the history of comic books, and how they have both reflected and influenced American society across more than seven decades.
