Comic Response

I really enjoyed reading the Comic book as it was a theory/history book on comics written in comic format. Therefore, I appreciated his theory more because of this. I felt that him employing the comic book format while discussing the art of comics allowed the reader/viewer to not only see what his theory was but also see it in action and understand what he was saying. This, I think, was particularly apparent when he discussed the things our mind takes for granted or ‘accepts’ in a comic, such as the circle with two dots and a line is accepted, without question, as a person’s face. Moreover, I liked how he pointed out the power of the reader’s imagination and how one trick is to leave out details that the reader can fill in to their own personal wants.
