Developed as a text for a course the author delivered, it’s a little dry and feels like it relies on their coursework and feedback. An interesting discourse on how stories come together, filtered through the weirdness of the individual comics artist.

Probably one of the best books on teaching and making comics available. A reader interested in learning the craft of comics would do well to gollow its course. This book is excellent!


I read this on the suggestion of Lynda Barry in “Syllabus” for my Humanities course, focusing mostly on the philosophy side, but I’m looking forward to actually taking the course as Brunetti outlines it and working on my own fledgling doodles.

Brunetti’s best known work is his autobiographical comic series Schizo. As a textbook, it’s highly effective as well.
