Reading Making Comics
by Scott McCloud.
How is that? Understanding Comics
is a brilliant piece of seminal work in Comics Studies.
Does the sequel live up to it?
Never read Understanding Comics
(But i want to,after hearing what everyone said about this book),so i can't make a comparision.
The book is very interresting with many informations of how to build a comic what kind of choices you can make.
The book covers the transitions of panel to panel(and the pages themselfs),narritive,making characters,building worlds,what kind of tools you can use,styles of comics and many others.
It very fascinating the way he see and displays his thoughs.
A very worth read.
