Reading Comics

Douglas Wolk, author of READING COMICS, will be at Quimby’s, Saturday, August 11th, 7:00 pm. As usual, it is a FREE EVENT!

In Douglas Wolk’s READING COMICS: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean, fans have a collection of criticism about the artists and writers they admire most: Frank Miller and Klaus Janson (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), Alan Moore and David Gibbons (Watchmen), Dave Sim (Cerebus), Steve Ditko and Stan Lee (Dr. Strange), Keith Giffen (Legion of Super Heroes), and more; and newcomers have a history of how comics evolved, a diverse list of the comics worth reading, and a context for how to read, consider, and discuss comics.
