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
"The best analysis of the medium that I have ever encountered."--Alan Moore
"Reading Understanding Comics blew my teenage mind, and gave me a toolbox full of ideas that I still use today."--Raina Telgemeier
"BRAVO!! ... A landmark dissection and intellectual consideration of comics as a valid medium. ... Anyone interested in this literary form must read it."--Will Eisner
