Scott McCloud Lecture
October 7, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The School of Art presents a public lecture and signing by comics advocate, scholar, and author Scott McCloud, on Friday Oct. 7th from 6 to 8 pm in AJ 175, just off the Atrium Foodcourt.
Fans of comics and comic history will be very familiar with the work of Mr. McCloud, which includes his groundbreaking text, Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art, and his most recent graphic novel, The Sculptor.
Scott’s website says it best: “Depending on who you ask, I’m either comics’ leading theorist or a deranged lunatic, but life continues to be very interesting for me and the ideas that I’ve raised continue to provoke reactions throughout the comics community and — increasingly — beyond it. Pick up Understanding Comics (or look for it at your local library) to begin nding out why.
Anyone interested in comics, the history of comics, and graphic novels as an art form will enjoy this presentation.
