Scott McCloud goes to Krannert in Illinois for another lecture

Scott McCloud makes another lecturing visit on his 50-state tour to promote his book "Making Comics", this time at Krannert in Illinois:
In 1993, the comics writer, artist and theorist first championed the powerful language of comics with his book "Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art."

McCloud's book was not simply a text about comics with pictorial examples, but was instead written and drawn entirely in comic book format. John Jennings, an associate professor in FAA, said of McCloud, "In my opinion, Scott McCloud is one of the most important figures in visual culture and media literacy. His insight into the comics medium is second to none, and his passion and expertise will influence comic book creators for generations to come."
I certainly hope he does make an impact.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
