- Islam bring an influence on the philosophy of beauty in Indonesia. This can be seen from the basic changes of artworks in the Hindu-Buddhist era, when it is compared to artworks that were later born in Islam influence. This study examines the history and philosophy of Islamic art, especially comic media, from the pre-Islamic period to the post-modern period in Indonesia. Data analysis used in this study was interpretation analysis, so that the data collected from document review and literature study is the key to the research conducted. Islamic art excludes works that are sacred or cultured. Islamic art works are not a means of ritual, or in other words they cannot be a means of connecting humans with their God. Islamic art in Indonesia then continues to adapt to the influence of the renaissance and industrial revolution brought by colonialism from Europe to Asia. New art media emerged as a result of the meeting of those two different cultures, one of which was comic media. Islamic comics in Indonesia began to appear in the 1960s. Industrialization requires the development of various lines, they forms the Islamic comics that exist today. Now the comic industry is not only about questioning how to sell printed paper. Digital and internet media make the comic market develop into a level that cannot be imagined before
