Did you know...? (Fun Facts)
The oldest oak trees are over 1000 years old. It is more common for oak trees to reach a couple hundred. Oak trees are believed to represent longevity, strength, and wisdom.
The term 'graphic novel' is very new. Bookstores didn't begin designating 'graphic novels' as a genre until the early 2000s. Some of the most prominent comics artists actually prefer the term 'sequential art' or just plain 'comics.' If we consider comics to be a series of images that tell a story, cave paintings and Egyptian hieroglyphics would count as some of the earliest examples of the art form. That would make comics thousands of years old!
Oak Tree Comics was founded on June 30th, 2020. If you see an oak tree on our birthday, say, "Hi!" Read our first book, and you'll learn trees can actually speak!
