Eisner, Will. Comics and Sequential Art. 2nd Edition. New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 2008. Print.
Comics and Sequential Art is a masterwork of the twentieth century’s great American artist, Will Eisner. He was a pioneer in the field of comic arts. In his revised classic book Comics and Sequential Art, he refines the art of graphic storytelling into clear, concise principles that every cartoonist, comic artist, writer, and filmmaker needs to know. The book is an essential text filled with invaluable theories and easy-to-use techniques. Eisner has revealed the fundamentals of graphic storytelling. He addresses dialogue, anatomy, framing, and many other important aspects of the art form. This updated instructional book is as valuable a guide as the 1st edition. And, I will be using this book to understand and the guide readers of my research paper through the types of comic books and how they changed with time.
