Comic books reached its golden age from 1938 to 1956 as a man in red and blue costume came into existence. This was Superman, the very first comic character to possess power beyond a normal human being. However, in a recent news, it reveals that comic sales significantly dropped in 2017 compared to 2016. Researchers are looking at the possibility of a content crash and the need for diversity as readers crave for something that is fresh and new.
