Review Text

'Scott McCloud's Reinventing Comics is a manifesto, and an audacious one, irritating as the grain of sand which may one day produce a pearl. It will provoke a lot of arguments, it will make a lot of people think, and it may ultimately change the world a little-which is, after all, what a manifesto is for." Neil Gaiman
