Making Comics: Storytelling Secrets of Comics, Manga and Graphic Novels
Author
Scott McCloud
ISBN
9780060780944
Scott McCloud tore down the wall between high and low culture in 1994 with Understanding Comics, a massive comic book about comics, linking the medium to such diverse fields as media theory, movie criticism, and web design. In Reinventing Comics, McCloud took this to the next level, charting twelve different revolutions in how comics are generated, read, and perceived today. Now, in Making Comics, McCloud focuses his analysis on the art form itself, exploring the creation of comics, from the broadest principles to the sharpest details (like how to accentuate a character's facial muscles in order to form the emotion of disgust rather than the emotion of surprise.) And he does all of it in his inimitable voice and through his cartoon stand-in narrator, mixing dry humor and legitimate instruction. McCloud shows his reader how to master the human condition through word and image in a brilliantly minimalistic way. Comic book devotees as well as the most uninitiated will marvel at this journey into a once-underappreciated art form.--Booklist (Editor's Choice)Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Scott McCloudPublisher: William Morrow & CompanyPublished: 09/05/2006ISBN: 9780060780944Pages: 264Weight: 1.25lbsSize: 10.10h x 6.70w x 0.70dAward: Capitol Choices: Noteworthy Books for Children and Teens - RecommendedAward: Quill Awards - WinnerReview Citations: Library Journal 09/15/2006 pg. 45Publishers Weekly 09/25/2006 pg. 52Booklist 09/01/2006 pg. 35School Library Journal 12/01/2006 pg. 178Booklist Ed Choice Adu Bk YA's 01/01/2007 pg. 11Library Journal 03/15/2007 pg. 53Library Journal 12/01/2012 pg. 44Library Journal 02/01/2016 pg. 38
