As the creative media palette expands online, the storytelling and multimedia principles explored in Scott McCloud‘s ‘Understanding Comics’, + ‘Reinventing Comics’ become more relevant everyday. ( Aye, aye’s they’s rad books that cannot be recommended enough to any kind of visual creatives ). ‘Making Comics‘ is Scott’s latest, which he promoted on a yearlong U.S. tour, trialling mobile ‘home-schooling’ with his teenage daughter on the way. Given the way Scott uses the comic form itself, to deconstruct and explains the subtleties and potential of comics, art, technology etc, it seemed appropriate to review his book in comic-style. Melbourne’s fine comic auteur, Gregory Mackay stepped up to the drawing board for it ( or was it graphics tablet? ), with Francis Bear in tow. ( + Give him a poke to get some more of his enchanting dystopian inked suburbia up online too! )
