PostPosted: Sun Aug 10, 2014 6:17 pm    Post subject: Comics are complicated



If you’ve ever felt there must be something more to making comics than just copying drawing styles then this is the book for you.

Topics include:

Choosing the right moments—what to include, what to leave out.
Framing actions and guiding attention.
Choosing words and images that communicate together.
Creating varied and compelling characters with inner lives and unforgettable appearances.
Understanding body language and facial expressions.
Creating rich, believable worlds for your readers to explore.
Picking the tools that are right for you.
Navigating the world of styles and genres.



The controversial 242-page follow-up to Understanding Comics advocates 12 different revolutions in the way comics are created, distributed and perceived with special emphasis on the potential of Online Comics.

Part One examines comics as an art form and as literature, creator's rights, the changing business of comics, public perception, and gender and ethnic diversity.

Part Two explores comics and new technology, including digital production, digital distribution, and the design challenges of comics in a digital environment.



A 215-page comic book about comics that explains the inner workings of the medium and examines many aspects of visual communication. Understanding Comics has been translated into 16 languages, excerpted in textbooks, and its ideas applied in other fields such as game design, animation, web development, and interface design.

Winner of the Harvey and Eisner Award, the Alph'art Award at Angoulême, and a New York Times Notable Book for 1994 (mass market edition).

Topics include:

Definitions, history, and potential.
Visual Iconography and its Effects.
Closure, reader participation between the panels.
Word-picture dynamics.
Time and motion.
The psychology of line styles and color.
Comics and the artistic process.



Come on into the store and check out these cool books today.
