Reading Comics
How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean
by Douglas Wolk 
 
The first serious, readable, provocative, canon-smashing book of comics criticism by the leading critic in the field.

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 this is and how it came to be.

Wolk illuminates the most dazzling creators of modern comics--from Alan Moore to Alison Bechdel to Dave Sim to Chris Ware--and introduces a critical theory that explains where each fits into the pantheon of art. Reading Comics is accessible to the hardcore fan and the curious newcomer; it is the first book for people who want to know not just what comics are worth reading, but also the ways to think and talk and argue about them.
