The interplay of texts and images that comics employ is probably the best possible way to bring attention of millennials to societal issues.
The comic artists have now started using humor as ink to expose the harsh realities of life. The use of satire to bring lime light to social issue in itself is nothing new and has been used by writers, bloggers, novelists and poets for ages now. But comic strips somehow manage to convey a message much louder and clearer without having many words in it.
The issues we suffer from or read about everyday are something not many people talk about. But the current age comic artists are making sure that these issues are heard off. They are using the art of comic making and mixing it with current affairs to create phenomenal comic strips that easily convey the problems we are facing daily in our lives.
Be it wage gap, gender bias, religion, love, betrayal issues or pollution and population troubles, there’s ain’t an social mess that these comics haven’t covered.
