    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleThis book has two parts The first section talks about the current state of comics in general and it's not especially satisfying This is a shame because Wolk is a smart guy who obviously loves all kinds of comics and he writes sharp interesting prose He also seems to have a mission

    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleI had expected this to be a tad academic and a tad less fannish than it actually is Not that Wolk doesn't have interesting insights he certainly knows his stuff but too often the tone was rather too casual for my tastes even veering towards summary at times Even when I agree with Wolk's often hyperbolic characterizations of certain comics this one is the most terrible comic of its era that one is ridiculous etc such readings are what I expect from say a blog than a book Of course much of what

    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleWolk is a critic and his book is one of criticism It’s not what I was expecting – history of comics and some analysis of the medium perhaps – but I can’t blame him for my expectations The first third of the book “Theory and History” trends closer to what I expected but I found myself getting angry every now and then as I read it Wolk early on makes a distinction between “art comics” and “mainstream” comics and then makes a point how art comics usually auteurist work by a single creator rather than a writer artist team are generally superior to the mainstream Thankfully he doesn't say they

    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleWolk’s book on comics attempts to establish comic theory analogous to film theory or literary theory as a starting point for discussing comics Wolk himself seems to know how hapless a task this is pointing to

    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleReading Comics would be a great book for people with a basic curiosity of the medium but it’s also sidelined by the insularity of comics fans it’s mostly going to be read by people who already have an interest in them Which isn’t a bad thing because although Douglas Wolk would hope to appeal to the “curious newcomer” the topics covered inside should also help the “hardcore fan” Both terms are used on the inner lining of the dust jacketWolk is clever sometimes self awarely so but presents the material clearly and in an engaging manner He starts out with a very cursory history of the medium and talks a little about superhero comics which are often maligned in books on comics criticism – sometimes for good reason But the last three fifths of the book are essays about different creators Some ar

    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleThere is no part of this book that wasn't fun to read and I'm sure that for other comics fans similar to myself that would be entirely true too Douglas Wolk is not just a fan he is absolutely in love with the medium of comics and as he guides people through some of the best loved heavy hitters o

    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleI think the title says it all The book is divided in two halfs the first one has some comments and thoughts about comics its idiosyncracies the best and worst; the second half are reviews of works that the author deems noteworthy It seems like a very personal book and is at times fascinating the Grant Morrison article comes to mind but doesn't really bring a whole lot to the comics studies field and it doesn't have to

    Hardcover Ï Reading Comics PDF/EPUB Ì reading ebok, comics book, Reading Comics KindleThis is a tough book My enjoyment of it is bell curve shaped The first part is a discussion about comics in general and it’s a really slog to get through He makes the distinction between what he calls “art comics” which he defines as comics made with the sole purpose of revealing the artist’s concept the way the artist wants and what he generally throws into the waste basket of “superhero conics” which is basically anything published by a big name mostly DC or Marvel that has a strong hand in the design writing and style Man does he HATE the superhero comics to point where he said that people who like them have some part of themselves that have remained immature Once he’s done insulting everyone who likes superhero comics andor doesn’t like art comics the second part is a series of chapters about individual artists and their work This section is pretty in
