Ferret how come you don't consider comics as books. In the 1960s they were thicker and now they are called COMIC BOOKS there's character development, plot twists and plot holes and continuity. In Japan they consider comics literature. And not every comic needs superheroes and villains. Archie is a good example as is Garfield, Peanuts, Beerkada etc. Even sometimes superhero comics don't show the heroes as heroes. Also the characters aren't one-dimensional.
