"From Comic Strips to Graphic Novels is an exemplary work of scholarship, and provides an excellent overview of comics research in general, graphic narrative theory in particular." David Herman, author of Storytelling and the Sciences of Mind
"If you need to know where to find the cutting edge of contemporary theorizing about graphic narrative, you have to come to the right place. Crowded into the sixteen essays of this omnibus collection are field-reports from the whole range of graphic narrative theory. Ably edited by Stein and Thon, this volume amounts to a one-stop-shop for graphic narrative theory in the 2010s." Brian McHale, author of Postmodernist Fiction
"Gathering contributions by the most prominent scholars in the field, this volume is a landmark in the study of graphic narrative. The variety of the represented approaches and of the works being examined bears witness to the extraordinary vitality of graphic narrative and graphic narrative studies in contemporary culture, and makes this volume a prime choice as a textbook." Marie Laure Ryan, author of Avatars of Story
