This book provides student journalists, artists, designers, creative writers and web producers with the tools and techniques they need to tell nonfiction stories visually and graphically. Weaving together history, theory, and practical advice, seasoned nonfiction comics professors and scholars Randy Duncan, Michael Ray Taylor and David Stoddard present a hands-on approach to teach readers from a range of backgrounds how to develop and create a graphic nonfiction story from start to finish. The book offers guidance on:

-how to find stories and make use of appropriate facts and visuals;

-nonfiction narrative techniques;

-artist's tools and techniques;

-print, digital, and multimedia production;

-legal and ethical considerations.

Interviews with well-known nonfiction comics creators and editors discuss best practices and offer readers inspiration to begin creating their own work, and exercises at the end of each chapter encourage students to hone their skills.

"In recent years the most ground-breaking and celebrated comics have been non-fiction. Journalism and memoir in comics have a power and intimacy that is only now being fully recognised. This book provides the knowledge and tools to enable you to create such comics. Packed with interviews, practical advice, and exercises, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in creating or studying non-fiction comics." -Chris Murray, University of Dundee

"An exceptional work! By combining an academic approach with perspectives from contemporary comics pros, Duncan and company establish a necessary foundation for interrogating the visual rhetoric of nonfiction comics-an invaluable resource for comics scholars and pros alike." -Zack Kruse, Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne
