In the Intellectual Defense of Comic Books

Comic books and comic book culture is a subject that is not met with much intellectual or academic scrutiny very often. The subject is usually brushed off with skepticism and stereotypes by people who are not actively engaged with the medium itself or its fans. Despite being a widely known sub-cultural group within North American popular culture since the explosion of science fiction in the 1950’s, comic book culture continues to remain misunderstood and overlooked. As more Hollywood films adapt classic comic book characters, comic sales remain strong within the publishing industry and comic culture hosts massive gatherings such as San Diego’s ComiCon, comic books are arguably more mainstream than ever. This article is designed to shatter stereotypes, ignite discussion and introduce the idea that comic books (and their fans) are keeping the historical art of storytelling alive in a way the world has never seen. By revealing the way comic books engage their audience, encourage children to read, and create a fictional reckoning with historical events, prepare to discover a universe that’s unknown to many people yet inspires to millions of others.

Bruce Gaiser got into a pinch back in the late 1980s and 1990s when he started doing business with Native reserves in Manitoba. The cash flow of the business dried up, “I decided I would work for more credible companies, like school boards, government, provincial boards, municipalities, cities, now we’re getting more into the design build,” says Gaiser. “You solicit the general contractors which is what we do, this is how the owner decides which builder to go with. Competitive build is what it is called. Back in the early 90s you would get 10 and 11 guys bidding on a job, now you would get about three. You can be more selective about who you deal with. Honing in on what we are good at.” Read the rest of this entry »
