Why did I love this book?
First things first, every other book on understanding and making comics is simply an addendum to the work of Scott McCloud and Will Eisner. The fact is: most comics creators begin the process of learning to write and draw comics by teaching themselves from the comics and graphic novels they read, mostly through observation, and trial and error. With Understanding Comics, Scott McCloud, in addition to Eisner, pioneered the analytical study of how and why comics work. It’s a must-read for any serious comics creator, because it gives prospective comics creators and educators a solid foundation on which to build.
