Today’s comic books stand on the shoulders of giants. Students who would like to see the genesis of the comic book medium should check out the Digital Comic Museum. They can spend days reading free comic books from the Golden Age (1930s–1950s). The titles and characters may be unfamiliar—although Captain Marvel (now more widely known as Shazam) does show up—but they can see how the Golden Age books had a strong influence on today’s works. They can browse through some of the classic titles from 60 years ago and see how the artwork and storytelling have changed.
