Book Description
A comic book about comic books. McCloud, in an incredibly accessible style, explains the details of how comics work: how they're composed, read and understood. More than just a book about comics, this gets to the heart of how we deal with visual languages in general. "The potential of comics is limitless and exciting!" writes McCloud. This should be required reading for every school teacher. Pulitzer Prize-winner Art Spiegelman says, "The most intelligent comics I've seen in a long time."
Praised throughout the cartoon industry by such luminaries as Art Spiegelman, Matt Groening, and Will Eisner, this innovative comic book provides a detailed look at the history, meaning, and art of comics and cartooning.

    Uno de los mejores libros que he leído nunca. Opino que debería ser lectura obligada en escuelas de arte y en cualquier cículo en que exista interés por entender la imagen, porque este título no trata sólo de cómic (de hecho es de lo que menos se habla), sino de lectura de imágenes. Ameno, interesantísimo, y muy didáctico.

    Oltre alle illuminanti informazioni riguardo a questa arte sono rimasta impressionata dalla semplicità e velocità con cui riesce a trasmettere concetti, anche complessi, mantenendo un tenore piacevolmente leggero. Comincio a pensare che molte cose potrebbero essere insegnate in questo modo. Immediato, concetti complicati "disegnati" con semplicità disarmante. Se mi avessero insegnato la geografia con questo sistema probabilmente non la odierei così tanto! E non l'ho ancora finito...

    I thought this book was interesting, it talked and explained a lot on comics. why authors write the way they do and why the pictures and borders are the way they are in the comic books(:

    The book opened my eyes to many small details about comics that i did not realize. Understanding Comics is a great book for people that are looking for a eye opening new way to read comics. This book also brings many key facts to everyday life, such as the hat inference that once a hat is put on it becomes part of that person.
