Definitely NOT "Understanding Comics"23 septembre 2003
- Publié sur Amazon.com
The idea behind this book was "computers, internet, and comics." Sounds great, but there was a bit too much explaining the history of computers and internet. It was necessary for those people who don't know, and I reccomend it for those who want to learn about computers / internet in general. However, as a seasoned computer tech of sorts, reading most of this book was like "eating 10 pounds of potato salad" as McCloud himself described his book at one time. Another problem is that the book is somewhat outdated. Comics on the web are proliferating successfully, and broadband and VERY fast computers are quite affordable now. It has good moments, though his first book "Understanding Comics" is much, much better. That is a landmark title for comics.
