Born in the nineteenth century in the United States, the comics still enjoy a huge circulation.
Initially conceived as an addendum to newspapers, it develops as a genre in its own right with a weekday frequency, although with a lot of hesitation due to the high editorial risks; this explains, for example, short initial runs of comic strip characters who have become famous over time.
In terms of value, it is enough to mention the first issue of Action Comics, published in June 1938, which contained the first comic strip of Superman, beaten at auction for a million dollars!
In Italy, the genius of Arnoldo Mondadori should be noted. Thanks to an exclusive contract with Walt Disney, he created a school of top-quality Italian cartoonists, whose publications are still of great commercial interest.
