Comic Book
A COMIC BOOK or COMICBOOK, also called COMIC MAGAZINE or simply COMIC, is a publication that consists of comic art in the form of sequential juxtaposed panels that represent individual scenes. Panels are often accompanied by brief descriptive prose and written narrative, usually dialog contained in word balloons emblematic of the comics art form. Although comics has some origins in 18th century Japan and 1830s Europe, comic books were first popularized in the United States during the 1930s. The first modern comic book, _Famous Funnies _, was released in the United States in 1933 and was a reprinting of earlier newspaper humor comic strips , which had established many of the story-telling devices used in comics. The term _comic book_ derives from American comic books once being a compilation of comic strips of a humorous tone; however, this practice was replaced by featuring stories of all genres, usually not humorous in tone

Holy Terror (graphic Novel)
HOLY TERROR is a graphic novel by Frank Miller which follows a superhero named The Fixer as he battles Islamic terrorists after an attack on Empire City. The novel was originally proposed as HOLY TERROR, BATMAN! in 2006 but is no longer a project associated with the Batman character or DC Comics . Miller explained in 2010 "It’s no longer a DC book. I decided partway through it that it was not a Batman story." CONTENTS * 1 Development * 2 Criticism * 3 References * 4 External links DEVELOPMENTAs originally announced the plot revolved around Batman defending Gotham City from an attack by the Islamist terrorist group Al-Qaeda . According to Miller, the comic would have been a "piece of propaganda " in which Batman "kicks Al-Qaeda 's ass." Miller announced the graphic novel during a panel at the WonderCon comic book convention held in San Francisco in 2006. He summarized the work as "not to put too fine a point on it, a piece of propaganda... Superman punched out Hitler . So did Captain America . That's one of the things they're there for." The title of the graphic novel is a reference to the War on Terror as well as the catchphrase ("Holy , Batman!") used by Burt Ward (Robin ) in the 1960s Batman television series

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero). Occasionally, a book may appear without a printed ISBN if it is printed privately or the author does not follow the usual ISBN procedure; however, this can be rectified later. Another identifier, the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN), identifies periodical publications such as magazines ; and the International Standard Music Number (ISMN) covers for musical scores
