DAWN OF A NEW ERA OF COMICS. Reinventing Comics: The Twelve Revolutions

In the book Reinventing Comics: The Twelve Revolutions (2001) of by Scott McCloud, he explains many new theories of how the comic book industry evolved  since the release of his first book of Understanding Comics Books: The Invisible Art (1993). In this new book of Reinventing Comics: The Twelve Revolutions McCloud explains the how the new media change the way we as a general public readers looks at comics and how how made it tougher to design to a creditable story line . In this chapter, McCloud's goes on to explain the book (Comic Book:The Invisible Art. 1993) was meant to grow as a cultural movement in whole new viewing of comics to classical literature. McCloud's has pointed out in this chapter to is the importance reamaging the way the read comics book and the media outlets has emergence since the first publications of McCloud's revolutionary book almost a decade ago. The main points that stuck out in this that McCloud's describes in this chapter is the "Twelve Revolutions" and how the effects of these revolutions will continue to progress in a positive revolution. The Twelve Revolution are describes as the following: Comics of Literature,Comics of Art, Creative Rights, Industry Innovation, Public Perception, Institution Scripting, Gender Balance, Minority Representation, Diversity of Gender, Digital Production, Digital Delivery, and Digital Comics. In all of these the most important are but the digital variety that have the most effect in the world today is the introduction of the digital age and its effects creatively.

In retrospective, i agree on the Scott McCloud's Twelve Revolutions theories and how they effect the modern age of comic book.  The importance of Twelve Revolutions can be argue in many ways but many will be a positive manor of thoughts of creative process. McCloud's also points out in this chapter that comics books are still not consider appropriate literature and especially culturally excepted. The perception of a Average comic reader in most peoples mind is some kid, that's always pick on in school and gets no respect in theory. McCloud's mentions in the chapter that we have not yet passed perception and people still do not read comics books in public because of the stereotyping of a comic reader. If we think a progression as reading a comic book in the subway train rather than a newspaper, McCloud's ideas will some day be a reality rather than a thought.

  1. You need to proofread, Jake. Much of your post is confusing or doesn't make sense.

    And how does this chapter relate to one of our other texts?
