Critic Wolk illuminates the most dazzling creators of modern comics--from Alan Moore and Alison Bechdel to Dave Sim and Chris Ware--and introduces a critical theory that explains where each fits into the pantheon of art.
From the Publisher:
Suddenly, comics are everywhere: a newly matured art form, filling bookshelves with brilliant, innovative work and shaping the ideas and images of the rest of contemporary culture. In Reading Comics, critic Douglas Wolk shows us why and how. Wolk illuminates the most dazzling creators of modern comics-from Alan Moore to Alison Bechdel to Chris Ware-and explains their roots, influences, and where they fit into the pantheon of art. As accessible to the hardcore fan as to the curious newcomer, Reading Comics is the first book for people who want to know not just which comics are worth reading, but ways to think and talk and argue about them.
A critical history and analysis of graphic novels and comic fiction looks at the evolution of the genre and its impact on the ideas and images of modern popular culture and offers profiles of the most important creators of modern comics--Will Eisner, Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, and others--and their place in the pantheon of art and artists. Reprint.
