MI – Comics and the Art of Visual Communication


Cartoonist Scott McCloud appears at the Ann Arbor District Library on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

“Comics” is finally coming of age as an artistic and literary form. Now this once-maligned medium of expression is poised for new opportunities, thanks to a mutating media environment and a potential revolution in visual education. Author and comics artist Scott McCloud shines a light on these and other fascinating trends—and demonstrates why every visual choice we make matters—in a fast-moving cascade of images and ideas.

Scott McCloud is an American cartoonist and comics theorist. He is best known for his non-fiction books about comics, Understanding Comics (1993), Reinventing Comics (2000), and Making Comics (2006). And he is the cartoonist/writer behind Zot (1984-1990) and The Sculptor (2015).

Vault of Midnight will provide books for sale at this event.
