Dating to the nineteenth century, Chinese comic art has been involved in each stage of the country’s modern history. Cartoonists often faced backlash in the forms of government restrictions, economic deprivation, and punishment. However, there were also many rewards as these artists helped set artistic policies for China and where involved in the formation of the country and its drive to so-called modernization. The conclusion paragraph reiterates four themes of the book: 1. the common threads that ran through the history of China's comic art; 2. the outside factors that influenced the development and nourishment of Chinese comic art; 3. the links historically between Chinese cartoons and the country’s more general art and literary professions; and 4. the relationship of art (specifically, comic art) to Chinese society. The conclusion also emphasizes the importance of crises of twentieth-century China and other major changes, such as the rise of modernization, switch to a market economy, and increased use of the internet, that tie together the history of Chinese comic art.
