Jeff Bouton Contribution Rough Draft November 17, 2009 There has always been a debate about whether comics are a medium for kids or adults. Comics have their share of children and their share of adults who read them. But for the most part, especially in the present day, comics have been associated with children. Why is this? Because it is for the most part true like all stereotypes. Comics have became a children’s medium for a couple of reasons. They have more to offer to children than adults. All comics offer an entertainment value to whomever reads them, adults or kids, but kids can use as a next step in their literary education level after picture book. For fifty years the content wasn’t intriguing for adults so the industry shifted to suit younger audiences. The comic book code eliminated from comics most of the qualities of entertainment that made them enjoyable for adults, mainly to prevent children from exposure to mature themes that they might not be read for. Decreasing the vulgarity in comics leaves a lot of the material open to only produce child friendly themes under the monitored code.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
