Comic books have always been a favorite for children. Comic books are benefit in education because of its inspiring power. The capability of comics to encourage students was recognized long back during Hutchinson's experiment (1949) with a set of courses made around Puck - the Comic Weekly. In the study comics had been found "helpful for motivation" by almost 74% of teachers found while 79% argued that comics "has increased involvement of individual ".

William Marston theorizes that the medium of comic books is woven into the very basics of its nature. As per the words of Marston, people have a natural inclination towards comics. By introducing comic books into the classrooms, teachers can make the atmosphere of "unbelievable inspiring power of comic books". Comics' main advantage over other storybook forms is that comics, being consist of “graphic and other images” are basically a illustrated medium, where pictures and text take on the burden of the story collectively.Comics can work as a liaison step between tough disciplines and ideas. Comics can make students inclined towards the regulation of reading, particularly those who do not really take pleasure in reading or have a fear of disappointment or failure. The suggestion of finding comic books helpful in corrective reading teaching was supported by a study at the University of Pittsburgh. Many teachers "discovered comic strips to be mainly helpful in particular classes or for pupils who are slow in learning in usual classes".

W. W. D. Sones, professor of Pittsburgh University in 1944, in a relative study between comics and text, found that comics' visual excellence increases the ability to learn. He noted that students of "low and middle aptitude level" were particularly assisted by comics' visual quality. Sones' conclusions indicated the inclination towards teaching to numerous intelligences amongst instructors today. In the struggle of engaging students of all learning dispositions, comics can confirm to be an alarming tool.Ahead of particular works, the very act of making comics is an interdisciplinary doings. In fact, reading and writing, comics-based ventures can develop sketch, computer, and explore skills. Many of the skills used in comic books creation can be used for film-making and designing.
