As one of the first comics to attempt to explain how comics work, it effectively puts forth its main argument that any topic can be made into a comic. Its history is cursed, its tenants plagued by abominable love, and its hallways lined with coffins and the rotted dead. The stereotypical gender roles were quite obvious: men alone are capable of succeeding independently and being courageous, while women are subordinate figures in the background.
