The history of the comic

the history of the comic is more directly related to the print and caricature.
Towards the end of the 19th century in Europe as in the United States, newspapers resorted to various incentives in order to attract the largest number of readers and, therefore, control the market. The modernization of printing of United States systems will allow that from 1893 in Sunday supplements appeared a page in color. On this page of the "New York World" appeared in 1895 a vignette of the cartoonist Richard F. Outcault that will lay the groundwork for the current cartoon.
The character that creates is The Yellow Kid, a Chinese dress with a long yellow nightdress, the neighborhoods of New York.
In The Yellow Kid were, for the first time, the three conditions which, according to R. Gubern - enable you to identify the comic as understood it today dia:br
1-sequence of consecutive images to articulate a narrative.
2-the permanence of, at least a stable character throughout a series
3.-integration of the text in the image.
