Comics: A Medium in Transition
More than any other popular art form, comics are sensitive to the formats, platforms, and devices that connect them to readers. How can this unique medium communicate content effectively when all assumptions about its form are up for grabs? Author and comics artist Scott McCloud puts a blizzard of new trends into perspective in a fast-moving visual presentation.
