Comics journalism

Comics journalism, or Graphic journalism, is a form of The Illustrated London News and Harper's Magazine.

More recent writers/journalists and illustrators have attempted to increase validity of the genre by bringing journalism to the field in more direct ways. This includes coverage of foreign and local affairs where word balloons are actual quotes and sources are actual people featured in each story. Many of these works are featured online[1][2] and in collaboration with established publications as well as small press.[3]

Joe Sacco is widely considered to be one of the pioneers of the form,[4][5] along with some groups of authors that produced the first known magazines focused specifically on Comics Journalism. Among these publications is worth to mention Mamma!, a magazine of comics journalism printed in Italy since 2009 and produced by a group of authors; and Symbolia, a digital magazine of comics journalism for tablet computers.
