These comics play an important role in developing the overall personality of an individual. Most important, those who do not enjoy reading novels can always try reading comics as it is less time-consuming, enthralling and relaxes a person. If, as adults, we inculcate this in our children, slowly, as they grow up, they will develop a love for reading. Children can have their own clubs or groups wherein each child can exchange their read comics with others. This also encourages kids to get the fundamental value of sharing, the value of money and the best utilization of time.

Many kids nowadays are a single child in the family. So, for them sharing is a new thing. These comics help to imbibe a positive quality. When kids exchange books, they don’t have the feeling of having comics only for themselves. This helps kids to learn to save money and not repeat books that their friends have. Most importantly, this keeps kids away from social media and technology. It helps children to bind with each other. If every child gets an opportunity to enter the world of comics, the coming generation will grow up to be better citizens with loads of positive values.
