Comics and graphic novels have had lasting impacts on literature, art, film, humor, politics, and culture.
In academic research, comics and graphic novels have been studied not only in the fields of literature, art, and cultural history, but also in fields such as education - as a gateway to reading for children, an accessible medium for learning a foreign language, and more.
"The first goal of this project is to catalog every comic, graphic novel, manga, creator, character and anything else that could relate to the field of comics...making as many connections possible from one issue, one creator, one character to everything else in the site."
