The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck
is widely considered the earliest known comic book. It was originally
published in several languages in Europe in 1837. It was reprinted in
New York on September 14, 1842 making it the first comic book printed
in America.
Odadiah Oldbuck
was 40 pages long and measured 8 ½' x 11'. The book was side stitched,
and inside there were 6 to 12 panels per page. There were no word
balloons but there was text under the panels to describe the story. A
copy of it was discovered in Oakland, California in 1998.

The comic was created by Switzerland's Rudolphe Töpffer,
who is considered by most historians as the creator of the picture
story.
