In 1993, Scott McCloud tore down the wall between high and low culture with the acclaimed international hit Understanding Comics, a massive comic book that explored the inner workings of the world’s most misunderstood art form. Now, McCloud takes comics to the next level, charting twelve different revolutions in how comics are created, read, and perceived today, and how they’re poised to conquer the new millennium. McCloud explores the life of comics as an art form and as literature and the volatile and shifting public perceptions of comics. McCloud also paints a breathtaking picture of comics’ digital revolutions.
