Fund the art form of comic books to the same level that opera is supported.
background
The UK has a long tradition of making good comic books. Yet since the 1980s sales of comics have declined drastically. The many talented British creators need more funding support in order to continue creating interesting comic books - we do it for opera so why not for this part of British culture?
additional details
Comic books in Britain stretches back into the 19thC, taking in many aspects of our culture. British comic book artists and writers have contributed important aspects, characters and stories to the art form. It's a key artistic area we have led the way in. Yet nowadays most talented creators scrape by on a pittance and the medium is in danger of dying off. If we can support opera with grants and funding then this arguably even more significant aspect of British culture should be supported too.
