Reading for Thursday

reinventing comicsSince we will be discussing visuality and ways of creating and crafting multimedia compositions with a heavy emphasis on images, I want us to read Scott McCloud’s “Through the Door” chapter from his text Reinventing Comics. You’ll find it here and also on our Sakai site under Resources.

As you read McCloud’s comic, think of the various ways he uses images to convey the very essence of what he’s arguing; how might that help us understand how we read these image-heavy resources?
