C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Controllers Adding an Action to a Controller

I'm trying to understand /ComicBooks/Detail URL

Where is the ComicBooks coming from? I know about the Detail that it's from the Detail() method but I can't find the reference to ComicBooks

Your thinking is right on track with where the course is going, you're just getting ahead of things a bit.

The "ComicBooks" part of the URL identifies the controller (the name with "Controller" removed). This will be covered in the next video, Overview of URL Routing.
