Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud

Scott McCloud, a 12-time Harvey and Eisner Award nominee, uses a comic book to explain and analyze the medium of comic books themselves, showing how words, lines, colors, symbols, panels and pictures all come together to create a unique and one-of-a-kind storytelling experience. Looking back at the 3,000-year history of the art form, McCloud shows how this unique genre is just as important and valid as film and prose in his own funny and profound manner.
