we can assign comics for media category, because they basically perform the same function as an other media, is protecting and transmitting information.
The comic media is separated that:
lets play with ideas and testing all limits what you can not in any other media,
Illustration important of ideas and texts for reinforcement at any situation. Also for reader everything looks more attractive.
For this reason, in this media come advertising. Often comics are a media for not only entertainment.
Differently than ordinary notice, paintings of stories particularity can express action, movement, sound, in stationary space. The text is enhanced with illustrations, but leaves a lot of space and for the reader's imagination.
It is also necessary to mention the color expression. Images transmit dynamics and make effects with colors. So it is exposed all the most important visual receptors.
Another advantage of the comics is ability to cater a large amount of information in a few pages
Advertising products with comics help we can choose from a variety of different roads:
