A Fascinating Interview With Scott McCloud, Author of ‘Understanding Comics’ and ‘The Sculptor’

Scott McCloud

Fellow Laughing Squid tentacle Brian Heater recently sat down with author Scott McCloud to discuss both his critically heralded work like Understanding Comics as well as his new book, The Sculptor, on Heater’s podcast RiYL.

That, no doubt, is a large part of why it took Scott McCloud so damned long to bare himself in such a way. The artist has, quite literally, written the book on making comics — three of them, in fact. For decades, his work has been largely regarded as the gold standard for making and interpreting sequential art, a watershed moment in the academic approach to the form.
