Gr 6 Up–The latest in this art-related series (previous titles include Anime and Manga,Impressionism,Animation, Sculpture, Graphic Art) takes on a relevant—and wildly popular—topic: comics. The title begins with an examination of composition and the language of sequential art. Marcovitz then explores the history of comic books and superheroes, looking at pivotal characters such as Superman and Captain America and the rise of darker, more complex themes within comics. The author ends with a look at digitization. A couple of brief pages are devoted to the portrayal of women and the issue of gender. Photos and sidebars break up the dense text.A comprehensive exploration of the format for report writers and fans.
