An Insightful and Thoughtful textbook
March 28, 2011
If you are interested in any aspect of comics at all, this is the first textbook you should have on your shelf. Scott McCloud guides you through the history and theory of comics art with wit and wisdom, all captured in an easily accessible comic. More than a simple funny textbook, this book will change your opinions on comics, whether you have never picked one up before, or you are long-time comics professional. This textbook could be used as curriculum for a college course, despite (or maybe because of) the whimsical artwork. The art draws you in and makes the information easy to accept and understand (in fact, McCloud gives examples of why the comics' art form makes it easy to read and identify with). McCloud takes this subject matter seriously, and after reading, you probably will too
