Review quote

"In one lucid, well-designed chapter after another, he guides us through the elements of comics style words combine with pictures to work their singular magic. When the 215-page journey is finally over, most readers will find it difficult to look at comics in quite the same way ever again."-- Garry Trudeau, "New York Times Book Review""If you've ever felt bad about wasting your life reading comics, then check out Scott McCloud's classic book immediately. You still might feel you've wasted your life, but you'll know why, and you'll be proud."-- Matt Groenning, Creator of "The Simpsons""A rare and exciting work that ingeniously uses comics to examine the medium itself."-- "Publishers Weekly"
