    Better as a cultural artefact than anything else though I did occasionally enjoy certain historical tidbits Perhaps this would have beenhard hitting if I had read it when it was published in 2000, but half assed discussions of diversity and cutting edge technology like CD ROMs makes it woefully obsolete and the writing wasn t anywhere near as engaging as its predecessor Understanding Comics needs an update just because I m interested in his take on the subject matter now this is in Better as a cultural artefact than anything else though I did occasionally enjoy certain historical tidbits Perha...

    Read through it in the library today.This is the first book I m reading from Scott McCloud, however I hope to read .In the first chapter, he outlines reasons why he s worried about the comics industry, but it s very clear he s writing from the 90 s It really had me thinking, every other sentence, I wonder what the state of affairs is now and whether he s still concerned He described a kind of bubble of comics creation that inflated and then burst in the 90 s I work in the games industry Read through it in the library today.This is the first book I m reading from Scott McCloud, however I hope to read .In the first chapter, he outlines reasons why he s worried about the comics industry, but it s very clear he s writing from the 90 s It really had me thinking, every other sentence, I wonder what the state of affairs is now and whether he s still concerned He described a kind of bubble of comics creation that inflated and then burst in the 90 s I work in the games industry, and it was honestly rather inter...

    Understanding Comics was understandably groundbreaking and something that I still draw inspiration from no pun intended , but this appendix like follow up doesn t hold the same clout Whereas Understanding Comics was a timeless philosophical study for the sake of the art, Reinventing Comics moors itself firmly in the late 90s, exhaustively studying the history and industry of comics as it stood in the 90s and how it may shape up in the then future The entire second half of the book is based on Understanding Comics was understandably groundbreaking and something that I still draw inspiration from no pun intended , but this appendix like follow up doesn t hold the same clout Whereas Understanding Comics was a timeless philosophical study for the sake of the art, Reinventing Comics moors itself firmly in the late 90s, exhaustively studying the history and industry of comics as it stood in the 90s and how it may shape up in the then future The entire second half of the book is based on an extensive and often esoteric study of where comics...

    Apragmatic book than his Understanding Comics and thus a bit less timeless, perhaps this is nevertheless a clear, well argued and explained essay.

    Other than his 3D Lincoln comic this is probably Scott McCloud s most overlooked comic, but unlike the Lincoln thing this book deserves your attention Yeah, even today, still Many people have claimed that this book was dated when it hit the shelves and is certainly irrelevant now, a historical curiosity at best That s partly true McCloud s cry fordiversity in subject and viewpoint in comics is as relevant as ever the dated caricatures of 90 s diversity notwithstanding, and his histor Other than his 3D Lincoln comic this is probably Scott McCloud s most overlooked comic, but unlike the Lincoln thing this book deserves your attention Yeah, even today, still Many people have claimed that this book was dated when it hit the shelves and is certainly irrelevant now, a historical curiosity at best That s partly true McCloud s cry fordiversity in subject and viewpoint in comics is as relevant as ever th...

    Karl Marx was a great describer of capitalism, but turned out to be pretty terrible at forecasting its fall It is a lot harder to predict or influence the future direction of something than it is to describe it McCloud gives it a good college try, though from 2011 Reinventing Comics has aged a lotthan Understanding Comics I am impressed that McCloud for the most part doesn t fall on his face, though as I read it I was constantly wondering how he is reacting to the state of comics NOW Karl Marx was a great describer of capitalism, but turned out to be pretty terrible at forecasting its fall It is a lot harder to predict or influence the future direction of something than it is to describe it McCloud gives it a good college try, though from 2011 Reinventing Comics has aged a lotthan Understanding Comics I am impressed that McCloud for the most part doesn t fall on his face, though as I read it I was constantly wondering how he is reacting to the state of comics NOW which is the pitfall of a book that is positioned on the tip of the quick moving digital revolution I m sure there are parts of this book that were out of date by the time it took for the book to be published hell, even as McCloud was inking this sucker you wonder how much he had to tear up and re write Like with Understanding Comics McCloud tries not to get too bogged down in the minutia, he focuses on the conceptual heart of comics sequential art Most of the subject of this book is Mc...

    After Understanding Comics, this was disappointing The economic analysis did make sense and I m fully on board with the need for both authorial and genre diversity However the long winded exposition about comics potential as an art form, especially in the digital realm, far exceeded my interest in the subject Also, McCloud s prose style long...
