Comics: An Introduction provides a clear and accessible introduction to the Comics form – including graphic narratives and a range of other genres – with sections explaining key terms, history, theories and major themes. The book uses a variety of examples to show the rich history as well as the current cultural relevance and significance of Comics.
Taking a broadly global approach, Harriet Earle discusses the history and development of the form internationally, as well as how to navigate comics as a new way of reading. Earle also pushes beyond the book to lay out the ways that fans engage with their comics of choice – and how this can affect the industry. Two final chapters take a close-up look at how Comics can work for social change and political comment. Chapters on Journalism and Life Writing looks at how the coming together of word and image give us new ways to discuss our world and ourselves.
A glossary and further reading section help those new to Comics solidify their understanding and further their exploration of this dynamic and growing field.
