An excellent read

McCloud's book makes comics accessible, but it's also a great resource for any writer. His take on the creative process and the interaction between message and craft is insightful. Pick this book up ... Read full review

User Review  - profhayes - Overstock.com

I am using this book as the required text in my English course Comic Books and Visual Literature. I only wish the author would write a revised version and bring it into the 21st century. Otherwise it is still great as it is! Read full review
