Description du produit
Revue de presse
“In this, McCloud’s third nonfiction book about comics, he has produced his most significant achievement to date, and that’s really saying something.” (Cory Doctorow)
“Only Scott McCloud could have organized his thoughts on comics like this. Scott’s talent as a cartoonist not only makes him intimate to insights no outsider can see, but also gives him the power to show it to the world.” (Jeff Smith)
“Every aspect of comics creation is covered in this enlightening, accessible guide presented in a comic-strip format.” (Booklist (Editor's Choice))
“A guide to creating comics that is as thoughtful and entertaining as the best-loved work in the field, both enjoyable and accessible to casual fans of the form and the new gold standard for artists who want to create their own comics, manga, and graphic novels. (Bookslut)
“More than a how-to, the book goes beyond simple instruction, digging into the real dirt of creating comics.” (Kirkus Reviews)
Présentation de l'éditeur
"Magnificent! The best how-to manual ever published." — Kevin Kelly, Cool Tools
Scott McCloud tore down the wall between high and low culture in 1993 with Understanding Comics, a massive comic book about comics, linking the medium to such diverse fields as media theory, movie criticism, and web design. In Reinventing Comics, McCloud took this to the next level, charting twelve different revolutions in how comics are generated, read, and perceived today. Now, in Making Comics, McCloud focuses his analysis on the art form itself, exploring the creation of comics, from the broadest principles to the sharpest details (like how to accentuate a character's facial muscles in order to form the emotion of disgust rather than the emotion of surprise.) And he does all of it in his inimitable voice and through his cartoon stand–in narrator, mixing dry humor and legitimate instruction. McCloud shows his reader how to master the human condition through word and image in a brilliantly minimalistic way. Both comic book devotees and the uninitiated will marvel at this journey into a once–underappreciated art form.

Pursuing its reflexion from Understanding Comics and Reinventing Comics: How Imagination and Technology Are Revolutionizing an Art Form, the author continues to amaze in his cunning and easy to grasp depictions of the sequential art. Takling every genre, he doesn't stop at the surface, and break technical subjects into funny pictures and self-explanatory doodles. You learn and you have fun in the process!
The best thing about it is that most of his reflexions apply to any kind of graphical art, be it painting, movies or video games.
This book is already a classic in its genre, appealing to anyone, expert or not, dissecting a whole part of our human brain, how it works, and why comics are more than a child matter.
There's little doubt McCloud will be the same for Comics as Huizingua or Callois were for Video Game: a pionneer and a visionnary, on a yet-to-explode new way to understand ourselves.
The eBook in itself has some imperfection. A few pages are blurry, yet readable. The pages aren't displayed in full screen. And, at the time I write those lines, the Kindle 4 isn't able to keep the zoom level on all pages. Meaning you have to zoom again every time you go to the next. Quite an chore for something that should have been easily implemented, and obviously needed for image-oriented eBook like this one...
This is a technical issue (images are too small), hence why I rated the book 2/5 instead of 1/5. I award 2/2 stars for the contents, but 0/3 stars for the book itself. I am not happy with my purchase and I really hope this book will get updated soon.

I wasn't sure if this book would be good or not, but Scott McCloud really knows what he is talking about! It's super straightforward and easy to understand. He will show you what makes a good comic, and give you for components and formulas for being able to convey what you want graphically! I really like it. Even if you don't like reading or drawing your own comics (who doesn't!?) it's pretty interesting to know that there is an actual art to making comics (it sounds like a pun but I don't intend for it to be! haha).
