Author Neil Gaiman says that comic books are a perfectly legitemate 20th century art form, and comics, especially the Japanese anime and manga, have been getting more and more popular lately. Comic books appear bookstores and even libraries. Some people veiw comics as taking away from the community of readers and writers, and some novel authors frown upon them as not real literature, but I myself have been inspired as a reader and a writer by comics. I happen to read a lot of manga. I just wanted to see what you as writers think about comic books.
