MEDIA REVIEWS
?A much-needed textbook that provides an analytical toolkit to bring to bear on the complexities of comics as narrative art and cultural practice. It is both rigorous and reader-friendly: the case-study approach encourages an active application of the conceptual framework that is carefully built up. This book is a real asset for all students of comics.? ?Ann Miller, University of Leicester ?Karin Kukkonen's Studying Comics provides the reader with the tools necessary to transform themselves quickly from a comics reader to a comics scholar, capable of engaging graphic narratives from a broad range of approaches and ready to engage in this dynamic and emerging field of study. This is a smart introduction that takes both its readers and its comics very seriously indeed, while always remaining lively and accessible.? ?Jared Gardner, Ohio State University
