Would you consider Comics to be listed as literature?

I recommend comics to add in the Literature. Comics is a very important literature for young childrens. It is also read by the adults for fun. It gives Lot of fun & entertainment for the Young. It is also a hard task to make a book reading Intresting.

There are many comic books that are great works of literature. Though not every comic is high quality literature, but then again nor are all books (see trashy romance novels). The ruling was silly, and made by people who were suddenly worried that every year there would now be a new comic story that would take over the best fantasy award, which is silly, as there aren't many fantasy comics even today with a much broader field of books to pick from, and even fewer of those could be qualified as the best literature of the year.

I certainly do not agree with this ruling as I know that comics are a major part of literature.I grew up reading comics and they alone were that turbocharge that led me into reading every other type of writing. Were it not for comics, I might never ever have become the avid reader that I now am.I am still one of the biggest readers of comics around.I simply love comics,and will never stop buying and reading them.LOL!!!!
