does reading comics reduce childrens imagination?

we encourage childrean to read, but since most of them are not fond on books they read comicbooks (better something than nothing--at least they read) but don't you think that comics as they already have all the characters a default (the child can't imagine how the hero looks like, in what souroundhings are his wareabouts) decrease childrens abillity of vivid imagination. by reading books without pictures, the child must imagine everything and by that increase his imagination skils.

I don't see anything wrong with children reading comics, if anything I feel that comics can actively stimulate imagination. It is often easier to get children to read if they have comics, they can relate the words with the pictures and when I worked at my son's school the children were encouraged to read comics and then discus the stories. I used to see the children playing as their comic book heroes in the playground, using all their own imagination for their games
