How much influence do comic books have today ?

How Canadian Comics are influenced by the U.S

Comic books 50’s/60’s

Michael Uslan: "There's more to Batman than Pow, Zap, and Wham. And for abut 20 years whenever anyone mentioned the world batman, or wrote about it in print Pow, Zap and wham were always attached to the name."
William Dozier :"(The Batman comic book I've read) were all so juvenile, and so then a very simple idea struck me, and that was to over do it. And if you over did it I thought, it would be funny to adults, and yet it be stimulating the kids, the daring, doing but you had to appeal on both levels (Holy Batmania doc.) "
