If you read, write, teach or draw comics; if you want to; or if you simply want to watch a master explainer at work, you must read this book. -- Neil Gaiman McCloud's masterwork is not just an indispensable treatise on comics, it's also the best primer around on visual literacy and the mechanics of storytelling.

Bravo. -- Art Spiegelman Reading Understanding Comics blew my teenage mind, and gave me a toolbox full of ideas that I still use today. -- Raina Telgemeier The best analysis of the medium that I have ever encountered. -- Alan Moore BRAVO!! ... A landmark dissection and intellectual consideration of comics as a valid medium. ... Anyone interested in this literary form must read it. -- Will Eisner
