A handy guide to the mechanics, ideas, and the way comics work--in comic form, of course. Well done and inventive, McCloud covers a weensy bit of history, how to define comics, and then proceeds to break down art, iconagraphy, storytelling, lay-out, and much more. I was hoping for a guide more on how to read comics--I tend to get caught up just reading the words and ignoring the pictures and wanted some tips on integrated reading of art/words--, but this was a worthwhile read.
