Many books exist today that explain how to make a comic or graphic novel. But this is the very first one that offers a real method of how to read the masterpieces of the Ninth Art. An internationally acclaimed specialist in the field, Thierry Groensteen, tackles in this study all the major questions that are raised by the genre. More than fifty full-colour images transform the book in an anthology opened to all styles and tendencies of yesterday’s and today’s comics.
