Understanding Comics, by Scott McCloud

Posted: March 3, 2003 at 3:43 pm in fun_nonfiction

This is one of the few books that takes a close look at the medium of comics. Scott McCloud uses the comic book format to explore the conventions of comics, and how comics use our brain to do most of the heavy lifting for them. It’s an interesting look into what makes the medium work, and as a guide to studying the ground rules in any medium.
