Greatest 12 Characters of the 1830's
Who is on this list, what this list is about and how they got on the list!
This is one of a set of lists I made showing a progression of the greatest characters in a heroic style throughout time. Focusing for the most part on one decade at a time. The heroes that we know and love today were inspired by heroes before them. Some are even real people who moved into folklore. Before comics there were pulp magazines. Before that there was dime novels and before that was the penny dreadfuls. There were many others as well like Gothic novels, story papers and yes even a real novel.
These are the greatest characters of the 1830' between the years 1830 and 1839. These would be characters who will go on to be the biggest influences in comics either directly or indirectly. In other words these will become great inspirations to future comic characters and stories. Right now they are in order of year.
The first thing many will have to do when they look at this list is get the Disney versions of literature out of their heads. For example The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a lot more Dramatic than Disney's and the characters are much more full and in some cases tragic.
