He also did Reinventing Comics, which doesn’t seem to get mentioned nearly as often.

His bit on iconography, and why artists may opt for more realism or less realism, really struck a chord with me.

i would go even further and recommend Understanding Comics to anyone with an interest in narrative and story telling. among my improviser friends, it’s a go-to guide for ideas about telling compelling stories.

Another thumbs up. Really good stuff.

This very good but Will Eisner’s Comics & Sequential Art and the followup books are better
