25 September - US Comic Book Day
The first “comic book” as we now know it was a Swiss comic called, “Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck”, printed in 1842. It set up the prototypical comic book format, and started a trend of more and more smaller comic books pop up. The first standard-size comic was called “Funnies on Parade”, and was an example of how most early comic books were organized- a collection of “funnies”, short humorous comics, bound together in a short booklet.
While comic books and graphic novels did start out in all these smaller mediums, their storytelling and artistry has only grown over the years, and by now they encompass so many genres and styles. National Comic Book Day is celebrated on September 25th, and celebrates the history of the medium and its impact on our culture. Collectors, fans, readers and even artists join in celebrating this day by attending national celebrations.
