As there is no dominant national language, the four main languages of French, Italian, German and Romansch form the four branches which make up a literature of Switzerland.
The original Swiss Confederation, from its foundation in up to , gained only a few French-speaking districts in what is now the Canton of Fribourg, and so the German language dominated. During that period the Swiss vernacular literature was in German, although in the 18th century, French became fashionable in Bern and elsewhere. The French branch does not really begin to qualify as Swiss writing until after , when the French-speaking regions gained full status as Swiss cantons.

When dealing with Hungarian comics, one cannot separate comics made by Hungarians from translated foreign matter, since in some eras most of the publications come from the latter group and influence comics fandom and the general picture about comics in the country. The roots of Hungarian comics reach back to the mid 19th century. Until the late s the development of the genre were parallel to current trends in European comics. Comic strips were generally found in newspapers and magazines, featuring works from both Hungarian and foreign artists.

Women's media in Francoist Spain suffered as a result of the Franco regime.
Many writers, translators and others were forced into exile, or faced stifling censorship and harassment if they remained. New regime restrictions meant writing became one of the few acceptable occupations for women, and literate women with few other outlets for participation in Spanish society became voracious readers. Internationalism disappeared in the early days of Spanish literature. The s and s saw the most popular form of women's literature being romance novels.
Despite important literary contributions like Carmen Laforet's novel Nada, the , s and s were a period where the broader male dominated literary establishment refused to take women's literary efforts seriously.

Dutch comics are comics made in the Netherlands. In Dutch the most common designation for the whole art form is "strip" short for "stripverhaal" — "strip story" — , though the old-fashioned expression "beeldverhaal" — "picture story" — remains utilized on occasion, particularly in formal texts and treatises on the subject matter , whereas the word "comic" is used for the usually soft cover American style comic book format and its derivatives, typically containing translated US superhero material.
This use of the in colloquial Dutch adopted English word for that format can cause confusion in English language texts. Since the Netherlands share the same language with Flanders, many Belgian comics and Franco-Belgian comics have also been published there, the latter in translation. Sample of his artwork.

The Shattered Spectacle Emerging as it does out of an ages-old tradition for popular, humorous storytelling and imagery, it seems inevitable that cartooning would experience a major reconfiguration as popular culture was becoming mass culture.
While the focus has here been on the first major innovator of sequential cartooning, it should once again be noted that most of the things that characterize the new comics of the 19th Century also largely apply to non-sequential cartooning. Since the Renaissance, popular traditions of expression had been largely divided from those institutionalized by the elite.

With the rise of the bourgeoisie, the formerly so clear division between the two necessarily started collapsing. In the arts, this resulted in dramatic attempts at reconfiguring increasingly obsolete classical ideals, which eventually ended up having to give way to timely representations of the here and now, of modern life as it was happening. It seems natural that a form with its roots in popular imagery with its archetypical and humorous idioms, finding itself in sudden confluence with an artistic culture it had until then been largely separate from, would situate itself in opposition to it.
Popular culture by definition being timely, this manifestation would naturally enough be one deeply engaged in the modern culture it was part of. But in opposition to most other manifestations of mass culture, such as the panoramas, dioramas, wax museums, and eventually photography and film, 35 which all sought to replicate reality as convincingly as possible, cartooning, due to its roots, stayed archetypical, unnaturalistic, and irreverently anti-classical and anti-authoritarian. Unabashedly topical, it would directly reference and comment upon events, people and cultural developments around it, as well as its own role in the order of things.
It therefore seems logical that it would remain in opposition to the naturalism that, in all its intense timeliness, in the 19th Century was an avant-garde, elitist project that turned out to have such resonance that it would largely dominate popular culture through the 20th Century. This is not to say that comics and cartoons were not affected by the changes in visual culture.
In the case of comics, one can certainly see the idea of juxtaposing images to form a narrative as a naturalist impulse; an attempt to provide the illusion of movement so sought after in visual media at the time. It has already been noted here how storytelling techniques such as cross-cutting in comics prefigure their use in cinema, something which seems like a clear indication that similar, modern visual approaches to storytelling were current across the board. The splintered field of experience exhibited in the writings of the Romantics and the work of the plein-air painters would increasingly inform the creation of art through the 19th Century, with painting invariably presenting a point de vue on the world, rather than, as it had earlier, a self-enclosed totality.
It does not seem like a huge stretch of the imagination to see the proliferation of sequential cartooning during the century as a manifestation of these trends.

Nevertheless the idea persists, despite there having been dissenting voices for many years, like David Kunzle, Benoit Peeters, Thierry Groensteen, and several others, who all point towards the late 18th, and especially the early 19th Century as the period in which the medium asserted itself in its modern form.
