    Comics and Narration HC (2013) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Written by Thierry Gronesteen. This book is the follow-up to Thierry Groensteen's ground-breaking The System of Comics, in which the leading French-language comics theorist set out to investigate how the medium functions. He now develops that analysis further, using examples from a very wide range of comics, including the work of American artists such as Chris Ware and Robert Crumb. He tests out his theoretical framework by bringing it up against cases that challenge it, such as abstract comics, digital comics and shojo manga, and offers insightful reflections on these innovations! Hardcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 192 pages, Text (with B&W Illustrations). Cover price $55.00.
