About this title

Synopsis:

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Traces the 3,000 year history of storytelling through pictures, discussing the language and images used.

Review:

A comic book about comic books. McCloud, in an incredibly accessible style, explains the details of how comics work: how they're composed, read and understood. More than just a book about comics, this gets to the heart of how we deal with visual languages in general. "The potential of comics is limitless and exciting!" writes McCloud. This should be required reading for every school teacher. Pulitzer Prize-winner Art Spiegelman says, "The most intelligent comics I've seen in a long time."
