Frequently bought together
“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. A must-read for anyone interested in narrative of any kind.” -- Alison Bechdel
“Cleverly disguised as an easy-to-read comic book, Scott McCloud’s simple-looking tome deconstructs the secret language of comics while casually revealing secrets of time, space, art and the cosmos! The most intelligent comics I’ve seen in a long time. Bravo.” -- Art Spiegelman
“BRAVO!! ... A landmark dissection and intellectual consideration of comics as a valid medium. ... Anyone interested in this literary form must read it.” -- Will Eisner
“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

- a sort of comic book explaining the history, theories and backstories of comics.
- everything (well almost everything) is in B&W
- few pages only but not the regular A4 print - more bigger and all pages are captivating.

A great read, too.
This book was recommended to me when I asked about books for design as "not totally about design book but a must read for a designer".
I'm just going to say that this is one of the best informative books I've ever read!
It is an eye-opener & mind-blowing experience.
I recommend it for absolutely everyone, whether you are interested in comics themselves, design, or art in general.
There is no way you are going to regret buying this book.
All the best for everyone.
This book has given me a new appreciation for comics. I've read graphic novels completely differently since reading it. I now really notice the authors' styles, savour each frame, and I feel like I have a deeper understanding of the stories now than I would've before. I also appreciate the time and effort that goes into making a good comic and find it unfortunate that comics are generally not taken very seriously.
I will never look at comics the same way again, and in some ways I will never look at art the same way again either. This book is both for those experienced and very inexperienced with comics. Very thought-provoking but also an entertaining read!
