What's so great about Comics?

We all love Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes, but do we know why? What is it about the comics art form that draws us in so effortlessly? Scott McCloud answers this in his 215 page graphic essay Understanding Comics. Whether you are a parent who wonders why your teen is fascinated with Naruto, or an aspiring comics professional, this work is an invaluable read.

Also follow the McCloud family (Scott, wife Ivy, and daughters Sky and Winter) as they make their way across the country with the Making Comics 50 State Tour. They will be in the Midwest in Spring of 2007.
