Strips and comic books are not true folk art. You can call them “folksy” perhaps, in the sense that the “folks” certainly do pass, every day, on their right to survive, do make choices and indicate favorites. But the people do not create them. The strips are of the people and for the people, but they are not by the people. They are written and drawn by individuals with individual ideas, or by small groups with small-group ideas.
