Artist Talk: Scott McCloud

February 13, 2015
Rubloff Auditorium; entry at Columbus Drive only
$10 CHF and AIC members; $15 nonmembers; $5 students and teachers

Join Scott McCloud, cartoonist and author as he discusses life in and outside of comics. Scott McCloud has made it cool to take comics seriously and is best known for his three books on comics theory, Understanding Comics (1993), Reinventing Comics (2000), and Making Comics (2006). Now the man hailed by graphic icons from Neil Gaiman to Alan Moore is back with a brand new graphic novel, five years in the making! The Sculptor reworks the classic tale of an artist willing to do anything to succeed, including making a deal with Death. 

“With Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics the dialogue on and about what comics are and, more importantly, what comics can be has begun. If you read, write, teach or draw comics; if you want to; or if you simply want to watch a master explainer at work, you must read this book.” — Neil Gaiman.
