Who likes to read comics? Has the audience changed over the years? Wer'e doing this in english-- please tell me the answer!
I would say that the audience for comics and comics books has definitely changed over the years.
Think back to even 20 years ago to the days before everyone had the internet in their home--families relied on the television and the good ol' Sunday paper to get their news. Every Sunday paper features a section of the comics, which younger children (as well as adults) could read and enjoy. Now, due to the internet, less people read the newspaper and more rely on websites like cnn.com, msnbc.com etc to get their news, and these websites do not feature comics.
As a teacher, I use Calvin and Hobbes cartoons in my classroom to teach Transcendentalism in American Literature, and most of my students have no idea who they are!
I think young children (under 15) still like to read comic books, but most likely gained that appreciation from their parents or because their favorite movies are now based on the characters.
