    '''4-koma''' are four panel comics popular in Asian countries, such as Japan.

    ==History==
    4-koma consist of four equal panels, most often ordered vertically. The limited number of panels result in the comics presenting very quick gags. Because of this, they are often used to parody other areas of entertainment and make fun of previously established quirks. The first panel serves to introduce the subject of the comic. The remaining panels will build from there, culminating in the punchline being presented in the final fourth. An example:

    *'''First Panel:''' "I am the genie of the lamp, I will grant you three wishes"
    *'''Second Panel''' "Wow, really?" "Yes. What is your heart's desire?"
    *'''Third Panel''' *pointing to girl in distance* "I wish Haruna had bigger breasts"
    *'''Fourth Panel''' *character lies on the floor beaten up, narration notes ''"She heard him..."''*
