The bestselling international classic on storytelling and visual communication

"You must read this book." - Neil Gaiman

Praised throughout the cartoon industry by such luminaries as Art Spiegelman, Matt Groening, and Will Eisner, Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics is a seminal examination of comics art: its rich history, surprising technical components, and major cultural significance. Explore the secret world between the panels, through the lines, and within the hidden symbols of a powerful but misunderstood art form.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"If you read, write, teach or draw comics; if you want to; or if you simply want to watch a master explainer at work, you must read this book." -- Neil Gaiman
"McCloud's masterwork is not just an indispensable treatise on comics, it's also the best primer around on visual literacy and the mechanics of storytelling. A must-read for anyone interested in narrative of any kind." -- Alison Bechdel
"Cleverly disguised as an easy-to-read comic book, Scott McCloud's simple-looking tome deconstructs the secret language of comics while casually revealing secrets of time, space, art and the cosmos! The most intelligent comics I've seen in a long time. Bravo." -- Art Spiegelman
"Reading Understanding Comics blew my teenage mind, and gave me a toolbox full of ideas that I still use today." -- Raina Telgemeier
"The best analysis of the medium that I have ever encountered." -- Alan Moore
"BRAVO!! ... A landmark dissection and intellectual consideration of comics as a valid medium. ... Anyone interested in this literary form must read it." -- Will Eisner
