Comic Book growth
"How did comic book culture get so huge? The experts explain."
Longish news article about the growth of comic book collecting and the ancillary elements of the hobby, with the article mentioning 1967 but really picking up the story in the 1980s. This of course leaves out decades upon decades of history of the industry, but the article does give a present-tense overview, though not a very serious one, and projects forward about what could be happening next.
These days, fans don’t have to hide their enthusiasm for costumed characters, caped crusaders and other fictional favorites. Instead, they can proudly wave their geek flag now that comic book culture has been so thoroughly embraced by the mainstream. Comic book culture has exploded in popularity in recent decades, moving from a once-male-dominated genre – which many believed was suitable primarily for younger readers – to a juggernaut that appeals to all ages, genders, nationalities and backgrounds.
