Historical Lineage of Contemporary Digital Comics
Professor’s Instructions: You will write about Digital Comic Books and trace its historical lineage in detail. In other words, your paper will explore some of the key developments in media history that have paved the way for Digital Comic Books and made its existence possible. A successful paper will discuss and analyze multiple aspects of Digital Comic’s historical lineage, including at least TWO of the following areas of consideration: aesthetics/style, technology, economics, and policy/law. Overall, your paper should present a clear argument about what important steps in media history are CRUCIAL for understanding Digital Comics in context. The paper must be a minimum of 6 pages (12-point font, double-spaced, one-inch margins) not including the cover page and bibliography, and MUST CITE A MINIMUM OF 5 WRITTEN SOURCES.
My instructions: I am a 23 year old female senior. I am a graphic design major, but this is a Media History Class. My writing is very fun and clear. While this is a serious paper, I want it to have a fun, energetic feeling. When discussing the (at least 2) areas of consideration: I would like you to definitely mention how the evolution of tablets, e-readers, mobile devices have made the Digital Comic Book possible (technology). You could also discuss the decline of of printed books, which forced comic industries to keep up with technology (This would be a good place to mention Marvel and DC movies making their comeback). Please feel free to include any of the other areas of consideration (aesthetics/style, economics, and policy/law).
