Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art
Starting to read this it brought back memories of when I used to read comics. It is very true that comics have recieved a bad reputation I guess to a point where people only think they are kiddie, crude, disposable, and cheap. I don't think people understand the true meaning of comics and often times define it as to narrow. There are many different types of ways to write comics seeing as there are many different styles. Understanding Comics is definetly a really good way to comrehend comic books if you don't know a lot about them. It breaks down definitions and shows accurate drawings of how things are done and thought of. It breaks down for you action shots and sounds to get a full effect of what is happening in the scene. It also shows how to capture different frames to connect all together to string a story line. I really like the begining as it was very helpful and informational to a non-comic book reader.
