Paul Karasic and Mark Newgarden expand their 1988 cult-classic essay, How to Read Nancy, into a book-length deconstruction that gets down to the practical and nuanced concerns of comics language with a minimal amount of hyperbole and a maximum amount of entertainment. Each aspect of comics syntax (dialogue balloons, panel size, character design, etc.) is dissected to reveal the hidden armature. In terms of explaining comics, this delivers the goods: to the aspiring beginner, the seasoned pro, the overburdened educator and the perplexed librarian alike.
