Community Reviews

Entertaining and educational

If you ever read comics or graphic novels (or if you have kids who do), this is an insightful look into the history, what, why and how of "sequential art."


I feel as if it was an interesting glimpse into art theory in regards to the industry of comics. I also love how the delivery was in graphic novel form, which is a feat when you are describing something philosophical.

Really helpful

After reading this, I feel like I understand comics a lot better. Recommended for comics readers and writers alike!
