are you ready to have some fun?
The history of modern comic strips started in 1895 when a bald little boy with big ears and bare feet appeared in a newspaper called the New York World. He was dressed in a night-shirt and words were printed on his shirt. He was called the Yellow Kid, this because it was the first time the newspaper used the color yellow. A man called Richard F. Outcault created the Yellow Kid. He later started using word balloons, which we now see in most comics.
Faster than a speeding bullet!
More powerful than a locomotive!
Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound!
Look! Up in the sky!
It's Bird! It's a plane!
In 1933 two American teenagers tried to sell a comic strip about a hero with supernatural powers. Unfortunately nobody was interested, who would believe in such a character?
Not many years later, the newspapers were full of Superheroes.
