Comic Book Documentary

I'm in college with a film major and I have to make a documentary for my film class. I can't really think of any ideas for one, and I thought it would be cool to do it on the world of comic books, but I need a specific aspect of it. At first I thought of doing it on the question "What is comic book culture?" but I seems too in depth. I need a simple question that I can get right to the point on. Can anyone help?
