Eisner says in Comics and Sequential Art (first published in 1985), “The format of the comic book presents a montage of both word and image, and the reader is thus required to exercise both visual and verbal interpretive skills” (8). In reductionist terms, it is also the oldest known “comic.” Religion has always had a vested interest in publishing, and, with a mass audience of the poor and illiterate and a mandate to teach children, comics.

Disappointed by her parents, friends and so-called boyfriends, Orange (yes, that's her name) decides to end it all by throwing herself off a building. Chapter Nine all but skips the period of World War II and moves unswervingly to “Mainstream American Comics, Post-World War II”.
