1970-1984 Comic book stores first started opening and promoting the comic industry through the idea of collector's and conventions.
1984-1992 Independent comic printing was on the rise, thus some quality of comics were very low. Companies rose and fell quickly, but DC and Marvel upped their quality of storytelling and continued to reinvent their characters and history.
1992- Present DC comics made a bold move and killed off Superman. This caused a hype and peak in sales, however consumers faded. Japanese comic books hit the states and also brought in a surprising amount of female fans. There are currently many controversies of this age surrounding copyright issues.

Appropriation: Appropriation is the practice of creating new work by taking a preexisting image from another source—art history books, advertisements, the media—and transforming or combining it with new ones.
Lichtenstein was one of the first American Pop artists, his inspiration often came from the culture and little of the artist's individual feelings. Which was a change from the previous abstract expressionist movement. Lichtenstein was often accused of copying from comics, but his production methods emphasized mechanical reproduction. On large canvases he used stencils to paint Ben-Day dots, and made alterations to parody and emphasize his paintings. He often made work to challenge previous art ideas and notions and worked to bring a serious context to pop art.
