Recently, the 12th edition of the China International Comics Festival has been held in Guangzhou, including a summit forum, which brought together cartoonists to discuss the future development of Chinese cartoons. 

At the forum, executive director of the Guangdong Game Industry Association, shared her insights on the development of domestic games and the animation industry. In 2019, the output value of Guangdong's animation industry stood at 63.22 billion yuan, accounting for 34.1% of China's total and ranking first in the country. Also, attendees expressed that China's distinctive traditional culture is the driving force behind the remarkable development of cartoons in the country. 

According to a famous cartoonist, fragmented reading habits have led to the widespread consumption of cartoons in the new media era, while the true value of the seemingly simple images lies in their thought-provoking nature.
