Upper secondary school students' interest in comics (English)
Abstract [en]

This master's thesis deals with the interest in comics among students at the social science programme in an upper secondary school. The history of comics and the reading habits of comics have also been examined. For the completion of this study 54 students, 19 boys and 35 girls, took part in a questionnaire. The results of this statistical survey shows that the department of comics at Malmö city public library plays an insignificant role concerning the interest and reading of comics for the students. The main readings of comics for the students are in the daily paper, which resembles reading habits of adults. The majority of the students had the opinion that boys read more comics than girls do, which correspond to this survey and earlier ones. Most of the students knew about comics and got in contact with comics as children when their parents read to them. They have also had a subscription of a comic paper. The students showed a low interest in borrowing, buying and reading comics, which make me draw the conclusion that the interest in comic is low among them. The opinion of reading comics is connected to childhood reading and something you do alone. Lack of time and competition from other media might also play a significant role for their low interest in comics. If librarians and teachers would inform and encourage the reading of comics, and show the students the wide offer, there is a possibility that the interest in comics would increase among students in upper secondary school.
