What is there left to say about costumed adventurers - are their exploits the be all and end all of how adventure works with the genres? It is true that the Fantastic Four owe their origin and their raison d'etre to a sense of adventure. A spirit of scientific enquiry becomes something more in a manned spaceflight through cosmic rays.
While all their battles are 'adventures', perhaps the meaning we are looking for would cover their time travel episodes or journeys to the Negative Zone.
I think you do need a protagonist or group of protagonists for any adventure. The panorama of space does not hint at adventure, only being and nothingness, but put The Spacehawk in the picture, gazing out, and you have adventure. Or, at least, he has adventures.
Does taking classic fantasy adventures and combining them, heighten the fantasy or the adventure or both? Read on.
You'll see horror mixed in with adventure - and in French, while action/adventure is all over the shop.
And, while hesitant to describe war as an 'adventure' (at least, not in the 21st century), comics are dealing with depictions of the battlefield that address such elements.
Western adventure strips have a long and enduring history. The romance of the nineteenth century carried through the twentieth.
Romance and adventure blend quite nicely; often with other elements as well. The same can be said for drama and adventure.
secret agents and detectives are a staple of the adventure strip.
What we all came here for.
Adventure and humour in the mix? You got it, Buster
