When we think of comics it is all too easy to reduce them to pictures and word bubbles. That’s less than half of the story: a good comic relies on an awareness of page layout, framing, point of view, pacing, spacing, lettering and many other techniques, which – paradoxically – are often invisible to the lay reader.
Written by an award-winning comics artist, writer and editor, this volume is the most thorough exploration to date of the possibilities offered by the comics medium to the writer or artist alive to its unique grammar.
Using hundreds of examples of art from some of the biggest and most-respected names in comics, Gary Spencer Millidge lifts the lid on the technique and thought which underpins the best comics, providing a fascinating insight for readers, writers and artists alike.
