Understanding Comics: The Invisible ArtTitle: Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art
Author: Scott McCloud
Publisher: Kitchen Sink Press/HarperCollins Publishing
Comments: Written by Scott McCloud, this book, a comic book about comic books (as well as graphic novels) provides an excellent look into how comics work as a narrative medium. Once again, though primarily about comics, some of the ideas and concepts in this book have applications in other fields, including graphic design, document design, as well as traditional (i.e. text-based) narrative.
