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."
