Comic Costumes are a fun way to show off your fandom of popular characters from your favorite comic books and comic strips ranging from Charlie Brown to The Incredible Hulk. Comic strips have been around since the 18th century and are still going strong every Sunday. Comic books have even been around for about 75 years and still capture our attention today.
Some of the most well-known comic characters have been around since the Golden Age of comic books. Superman and Captain America were the original comic superheroes who represented justice and patriotism, hence the red and blue themes in their costumes. Comic books are still popular today all over the world, especially in the US, Europe and Japan. Comics in Japan are known as Manga and have a distinctly different style than American comics. They’re usually drawn in black and white, rather than color.
Comics have changed over the years and the characters aren’t always as perfect as they were originally. Superheros from the Silver Age of comics have flaws, like Spiderman, who’s a bit of a nerd and Batman who has a very dark past. Those kinds of qualities are what make even superheroes relatable, which is part of why we’re drawn to these characters and want to wear comic costumes. Whether you want to wear spandex and a cape or dress like your favorite lasagna eating cat, comic costumes are fun, memorable and popular. You’re sure to get a lot of recognition when dressed like your favorite comic character.
