Comics are changing fast, both in the kinds of stories they tell, and how their creators tell them. Thanks to the “graphic novel” movement, the manga invasion, and the growth of webcomics, the story of comics in America is more exciting and unpredictable than ever. Author and comics artist Scott McCloud puts all these trends into perspective in a fast-moving visual presentation.
McCloud is the author of the groundbreaking graphic books Understanding Comics, Reinventing Comics and Making Comics and is also the creator of the comic book series Zot! McCloud and his family are currently in the middle of a 50-state tour celebrating the release of Making Comics. For more information, see www.scottmccloud.com.
