This is an exploration of the history, meaning, and art of comics and cartooning. Using comics to examine the medium itself, the author takes the form of a cartoon character and explains the structure, meaning, and appeal of comics, and provides a running analysis of comics as art, literature, and communication. He reaches back to pre-Columbus picture manuscripts and Egyptian monuments to trace the history of the comics and examines their place in today's pop culture.

    Un'opera eccezionale che nel descrivere i meccanismi del fumetto si reinventa, ampliando gli orizzonti del genere stesso.

    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...
