The 9th Art is the link between traditional literary narratives to a visual language of myth as seen in comic strips. Once considered the lowest form of literature, denounced by parents, teachers and clergy for their corrupting on the minds and moral of youth, comics now command the attention of cultural critics and scholars of Art history. Comics and cartoons are an indelible fact of American Life and consequently of American Art, and are central to the postmodern sensibility.
