86. Scott McCloud and Comic Storytelling

86. Scott McCloud and Comic Storytelling

“Comics is a powerful idea, but an idea that’s been squandered, ignored and misunderstood for generations. No art form has lived in a smaller box than comics for the last hundred years. It’s time for comics to finally grow up and find the art beneath the craft.” -Scott McCloud

Scott McCloud is a cartoonist and arguably one of the most renowned cartoon theorists on the planet. He is well known for penning the Creator’s Bill of Rights in 1988, a document that seeks to protect comic book creators from unfair business practices. There is no better person to introduce you to storytelling in comic books.

I’m leaving you with two videos. The first is from a TED talk that Scott gave, where he discusses the magic of comics as a medium. The video below is from the second episode of “Adventures Into Digital Comics” where Scott and others talk about comic books as a storytelling medium.
