We have seen that many early animated films, particularly in the US, were based on print comics. Why do you think that is? What was there about comics that would make them an appropriate subject for film?
Many early animations were based on comic strips because they already had a fan base, they had enough popularity that if animated would gain even more attention and popularity. I believe it would also have a positive impact on publishers. Comics were a great subject for the film because they had the humor and it would be interesting, it was something new for spectators, and as mentioned before it had a funny and sometimes satiric plot.
