Ch9 and analysis of book
Putting it all together: McCloud asks why are comics so important. He thinks the answer is simple. Sequential art. He says we are all isolated. And no matter what no one will know what any one else is saying or feeling. McCloud states that the only way to break the wall of not knowing is to understand. Comics are one of the few mass communications where individual voices can still be herd. He describes that we need to clear our heads of every thing we know about comics and then try and understand how comics could be helpful. Language is what drives comics. It is what gives meaning purpose. His last point is that comics are endless in their possibilities.
This book has helped me out a lot to understand comics. At first I didn’t like it and thought it was stupid, but then I figured out that comics are much more than super heroes and bad guys. It’s a way to learn it’s a way of understanding. Just like McCloud says there is a comic out there for anyone. My favorite thing about the book was that he made it easy to understand where he was coming from he gave great analogies and made his ideas very clear with simple examples That got to the point and explained what he wanted.
