Comics are a medium that uses images and text/ visual information to express ideas, typically in the form of panels in a sequence, using characteristics like speech bubbles and captions to relay the text. Archies, Tinkle, DC and even Marvel are some comics that impacted our childhood as we spent hours reading the entertaining pieces. Now with social media, the form of conveying the comics has taken a turn toward being digital, with webcomics showcasing illustrations and animations in the form of static posts or videos. There are many comic artists on Instagram, but a few caught our eye. Let's look at who?
