Why comics are the most democratic form of entertainment
In my opinion, comics are the most democratic form of entertainment and I have good reasons to back my opinion with, or at least that is what I believe. This may seem like a far-fetched idea, but I would urge you to stay with me and see if you will agree with me.
First of all, one of the cornerstones of democracy is that the freedom of speech is guaranteed. And while no one is stopping you from saying what you want in movies or in music, most artists tend to censor themselves in order to sell stuff. They know that people will frown upon opinions and claims that are too controversial. With comics, this is not the same. For some reason, comic writers do not censor themselves.
Another very important reason why comics are so democratic is that you can make a comic without any costs, basically. If we are being entirely basic and bottom line, you can create a comic with nothing more than a surface and something to draw with. When you compare that to making movies, or even making music, it becomes obvious that comics are the most affordable form of entertainment to make, which makes them very democratic.
These low costs, combined with the specific way of expressing your ideas mean that you will have no limitations as to what you will put in your comics. For instance, drawing a single square with nothing more than a tree is no less expensive than putting in a scene that will have two dozen spaceships and giant space squids fighting them. You cannot do this with any other form of entertainment.
Finally, you can enjoy in comics for a fraction of price of any other form of entertainment. For instance, you can get together with few other people and you can buy a comic book together. Once one of you is done with it, they can pass it forward and you all get the same experience for cents.
