DescriptionScott McCloud tore down the wall between high and low culture in 1993 with Understanding Comics, a massive comic book about comics, linking the medium to such diverse fields as media theory, movie criticism, and web design. In Reinventing Comics, McCloud took this to the next level, charting twelve different revolutions in how comics are generated, read, and perceived today. Now, in Making Comics, McCloud focuses his analysis on the art form itself, exploring the creation of comics, from the broadest principles to the sharpest details (like how to accentuate a character's facial muscles in order to form the emotion of disgust rather than the emotion of surprise.) And he does all of it in his inimitable voice and through his cartoon stand-in narrator, mixing dry humor and legitimate instruction. McCloud shows his reader how to master the human condition through word and image in a brilliantly minimalistic way. Comic book devotees as well as the most uninitiated will marvel at this journey into a once-underappreciated art form.

Amazing! Lots of usefull learning!
This book is Amazing. Probably the best book for learning how to make your comics. It explains how to plan them, how to interpret storytelling, how to choose your drawings and panels, compostiion, perspective, action, dailogue, body and facial expression, what tools to use and so on... And the best, the book is all itself a comic. Everything is explained through comics. A must have one definetely. by Sérgio Dias
