is the book for people who put down Scott McCloud's Understanding
Comics wanting more theory.
This book investigates the underlying structure of the "comic
medium"– visual language. Doing so, it expands, refines,
and lays the foundations for the first major alternatives to the
theories proposed in UC over a decade ago.
the earliest of Neil Cohn's theoretical writings in 120 pages,
it covers the split between "comics" and "the comics
medium," the boundaries between text and image, child visual
language learning, and lots more. Special focus is also given
to the importance of the sequential aspect of
visual language grammar. This includes a lengthy in-depth analysis
of panel-to-panel relationships – culminating in arguments
against 'panel transitions' and the proposal of a new hierarchical
"generative" analysis, placing primary importance to
the roles of time and space.
new ground, this book lays the foundation for a reunderstanding
of the graphic and linguistic modes of communication.
