I guess the idea is to understand the basic structure and potential of comic art, but must it be so academic and dry? Except this one has pictures or should I say, integrated with pictures?
Understanding Comics is a misleading title, perhaps How to and why you should appreciate comics would suit the purpose of the book better. Majority of people in terms of an audience that is likely to pick up a comic-related theory book has little trouble understanding the intention of the drawing and writing - we can feel the atmosphere, be moved by the characters and thrilled by the action.
Appreciating the history, concept and techniques that help build it up are, however, often overlooked. Much like film and literature, comics require a lot of conceptual and aesthetic decision to make it effective and communicative, and McCloud tries hard to evaluate the general methods that are used to convey these expressions. Frankly it is a bit arrogant to me. No matter what your medium - ink and paper, music, written words, motion picture, performance, construction, we as the audience give ourselves far less credit when apprehending these art forms.
Do you get it? Comic art is merely another form of story telling, it is equally capable of being as representational or avant-garde as any other art form. Why the fuck should it be efficient?
Then why should it be readable, straightforward and commercial like everything else? What McCloud is saying is that as an artist you have more control over the output.
And then he started talking about the human condition and how we can fix the world with reading more comics. And then there are angels reading comics, statues of bullied comic readers, massive yin yang symbol! The world map! Epic lightening! Message received.
