1. Response: Understanding Comics
The comic is my childhood memory. I always think it is fascinating, but I have never seriously thought about what makes comics so interesting. Why continuous pictures and text boxes that appear constantly can form a complete story? and why I can accept all of the settings in my mind and be attracted by such stories?These questions are all answered in this book.
I loved to watch Tintin and Miyazaki's animation when I was a kid, and I always came up with this question "Why the characters in these works are so simple and abstract, but the backgrounds are realistic and detailed?"
In Scott McCloud's narration, I understand that a simple character can help viewers regard themselves as the characters in the comic, and a realistic background allows them to enter the exciting world of comics. These are about audience involvement and audience identification with a story's character.
