    Comics: A Medium in Transition

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    American comics are changing fast. Bolstered by the literary ambitions of the “graphic novel” movement, a flood of international influences and the growing importance of new technologies, the comics landscape shifts regularly in surprising and increasingly unpredictable directions. Author and comics artist Scott McCloud puts all these trends into perspective in a fast-moving visual presentation.

    Scott McCloud has been writing and drawing comics since 1984. His book Understanding Comics was a New York Times Notable book for 1994 and is available in 16 languages. “Sin City” and “300” creator Frank Miller called him “just about the smartest guy in comics.” His new book, Making Comics, explores the art and craft of telling stories visually.
