Many college students find escape in comic books

by Roberto Sanchez
It's three o' clock in the morning.
You have a paper due tomorrow and
haven't started it yet. What do you do?
Panic? Pound your head on the desk? Nope.
Simply open up a comic book and say,
"This looks like a job for Superman!"
Perhaps escapism is the reason for the
popularity of comic books on today's col-
lege campuses. Comic book devotees might
pick up the latest copy of Spiderman and
imagine they are moody superheroes who
can climb into professors' offices and turn in
{ late papers without being noticed. Or per-
haps they can pretend to be the Swamp
Thing and get lost in time, avoiding the need
'to write the damned thing in the first place.
Whatever the reason, comic books boil
down to big business. Readership is esti-
imated at 100 million in the U.S alone. DC
Comics' "Superman" was selling about
200,000 copies monthly in 1988, and Mar-

vel's "The Uncanny X-Men" close to
500,000.
What is it about comic books that makes
them so popular? "People read comics for
the same reason they watch TV," said David
Blanchard, an employee at Dave's Comics in
Ann Arbor. "They're entertaining."
Others, like Rackham graduate student
Gary Kibble, are lured by the appeal of
"wish fulfillment... heroes do things that
people wish that they could do."
What turns a person into a comic reader?
After all, there are plenty of cheaper forms of
entertainment. Affiong Udowolf, a Markley
Food Service supervisor, said she started
reading comics in high school as a way of
"getting away from the books." Twelve
years later, she still reads comics, although
she is not a collector. "I just read them and
dump them," she said.
Others, like first-year engineering student
Tim Sonacki, got started through friends

who read comics. "They showed me the de-
gree of effort that people put into them," he
said.
The comic rose to popularity in the U.S.
around 1890, as a result of a newspaper war
between the New York Journal and the New
York World. To increase circulation, the two
papers began printing colorful strips in their
Sunday editions. These soon became very
popular, prompting the release of comic
strips in other newspapers.
The stnd-alone comic book appeared as
early as 1911, but did not become big busi-
ness until the Great Depression, around
1930. Since then, it has become a part of
American pop culture. The superhero comic
has taken a special place in myth making,
evidenced by the widespread fascination with
characters like Superman, Batman, Wonder
Woman, and Spiderman.
While the comic book has long been a
popular form of entertainment, its popularity

has seen a large increase in this decade. The
books have also grown more sophisticated.
The readership has grown up in recent
years. Once aimed at a young kids, the
comic book now reaches readers who average
20 years old. Many of these comic followers
are college students, who have more money
to spend than the traditional audience.
Today's comic book deals with more ma-
ture themes, and is more intellectual than its
predecessor. Comics like Art Spiegelman's
Maus, which narrates the struggle of Jews in
Nazi-occupied Poland, deal with real world
issues that had never before been tackled in
the comic genre.
Others include Heartbreak Soup, by the
Hernandez brothers, which describes the tor-
mented lives of the people of a small town
in Mexico, and Alan Moore's V For Ven-

The characters, too, have evolved. Super-
heroes now show more depth than in the
past. Frank Miller's Batman of today is no
longer a silly vigilante in grey tights, but a
tragic character struggling with a disturbed
psyche in a corrupt world. John Byrne's re-
make of Superman modified the story to fit
the demands of the 1980's, transforming
Clark Kent from a nerdy, shy underachiever
into a suave competitive reporter, and mak-
ing Lois Lane into a successful and self-
willed journalist.
