Erin Finnegan, over at her tumblr, has posted a simplified graphic taking a very broad view of the history of American and Japanese comics, focusing on the genres that each are dominated by. Interesting to me is the idea that at a certain point in both American and Japanese comics there were a huge proliferation of genres explored in comics.

And for those with some time on their hands here is a great recording of her talking further about genre at a panel.
