Unlike one’s parents, and even teachers growing up, comic books don’t tie in with being a “nerd” anymore, it’s the complete opposite, it’s accepted and is actually considered “cool” in some groups of society. Today, comic books have become simply another tool for teachers to use in history and english classes to spark interest for students to become more involved in the assignments, instead of it just being read for fun. When someone brings up the words “comic books,” they often are drawn to the stereotypical references to superheroes and fantasy stories that the “nerds” would read in their high schools days in the eighties, but today this isn’t the case.
