Making Comics

Last Sunday, comics guru Scott McCloud came to local comic shop Austin Books as part of a whirlwind fifty-state tour to promo his new book, Making Comics. I haven't finished reading it yet, but his earlier book, Understanding Comics, is well worth reading if you've ever had a passing interest in comics. It's truly a literary treatment of What Is Comics and Why. Cat had it in an Art History class as a textbook.

I assure you that any blurriness in the photo is due to my own motion, not any sort of elaborate photo trickery.

I own all three of these. Start with the first, if you haven't already.

Cool! I really enjoyed "Understanding Comics". Can't remember if I've seen it here in Poland though, so I guess I won't hold my breath for "Making Comics" showing up here any time soon. :)
