Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art is a 215-page non-fiction comic book, written and drawn by Scott McCloud and originally published in 1993. It explores the definition of comics, the historical development of the medium, its fundamental vocabulary, and various ways in which these elements have been used. It discusses theoretical work on comics (or sequential art) as an artform and a communications medium. It also uses the comic medium for non-storytelling purposes.Understanding Comics received praise from notable comic and graphic novel authors such as Art Spiegelman, Will Eisner, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and Garry Trudeau (who reviewed the book for the New York Times), and was called "one of the most insightful books about designing graphic user interfaces ever written" by Apple Macintosh co-creator Andy Hertzfeld . Although the book has prompted debate over many of McCloud's conclusions, its discussions of "iconic" art and the concept of "closure" between panels have become common reference points in discussions of the medium.

Starting in the mid-1980s, a talented set of comics artists changed the American comic-book industry forever by introducing adult sensibilities and aesthetic considerations into popular genres such as superhero comics and the newspaper strip. Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (1986) and Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons's Watchmen (1987) revolutionized the former genre in particular. During this same period, underground and alternative genres began to garner critical acclaim and media attention beyond comics-specific outlets, as best represented by Art Spiegelman's Maus. Publishers began to collect, bind, and market comics as "graphic novels" and these appeared in mainstream bookstores and in magazine reviews. The Rise of the American Comics Artist: Creators and Contexts brings together new scholarship surveying the production, distribution and reception of American comics from this pivotal decade to the present. The collection specifically explores the figure of the comics creator-either as writer, as artist, or as writer and artist--in contemporary U.S. comics, using creators as focal points to evaluate changes to the industry, its aesthetics, and its critical reception.

Comics have become important elements in the culture of the 20th century, not only has the genre been recognized as a medium and an art form in its own right; it has also inspired other means of communication from text books to interactive media. In 13 articles, Comics and Culture offers an introduction to the field of comics research written by scholars from Europe and the USA. The articles span a great variety of approaches including general discussions of the aesthetics and definition of comics, comparisons of comics with other media, analyses of specific comics and genres, and discussions of the cultural status of comics in society. One way to characterize this book is to focus on the contributors. Recognized and established research with important publications to their credit form one group: Donald Ault, Thierry Groensteen, M. Thomas Inge, Pascal Lefvre and Roger Sabin. Another group is from the new generation of researches represented by PhD students: Hans-Christian Christiansen

David Smith ist Bildhauer. Talentiert, aber nicht berühmt. Deshalb nimmt er auch allzu gerne das faustische Angebot an, jede Skulptur, die er sich vorstellen kann, mit seinen Händen erschaffen zu können, ganz gleich aus welchen Materialien. Auch wenn der Preis für diese Kunst sein Leben ist. Doch David hat dabei zwei Dinge nicht bedacht: Die Schwierigkeit ein Kunstwerk für die Ewigkeit zu erschaffen und ... die Liebe. Er hat nur 200 Tage, um beidem gerecht zu werden. Es gibt nur wenige moderne Comicschöpfer, die so großen Einfluss auf die künstlerische Konstruktion von Comics hatten wie der Amerikaner Scott McCloud. Nach seinen berühmten Standardwerken über Comics ("Comics richtig lesen", "Comics neu erfinden" und "Comics machen") hat er nun endlich seine erste große Graphic Novel geschrieben. Auf fast 500 Seiten nimmt er den Leser mit auf eine einzigartige Reise durch die Kunstwelt und die Seele eines Künstlers. Mit jedem Panel beweist McCloud seine große Fähigkeit, mit Bildern erzählen zu können.
