Three of his paths, however, are of particular interest to anyone who wants to know how the Internet will affect both our lives and the livelihoods of future artists. Understanding Comics, with its brilliant how-to guide on marrying image and language, has become an indispensable reference for many Web designers. Now McCloud returns the favor by focusing on how the digital revolution will influence production, delivery, and the art form of comics itself. Informative without being pedantic, controversial without being argumentative, and always entertaining, this is both a worthy sequel to the author's brilliant original and a work that opens up the potential for an entirely different direction for sequential art in the realm of cyberspace. --John Longenbaugh

I guess he couldn't have seen how the web would morph into blogs, video, social sites, animation, apps, etc.
Reinventing Comics was a requested gift. Leafing through it I found it had lots to share and great illustrations for the comic fan.Published 2 months ago by J. A. Moore
