Abstract:

A diverse study of how words and pictures interact in comics to make messages. In our culture, which depends increasingly on images for instruction and recreation, it is important to ask how words and images make meaning when they are combined. Comics, one of the most widely read media of the twentieth century, serves as an ideal for focusing an investigation on the word-and-image question. This collection of essays attempts to give an answer. The Language of Comics, however, is the first collection of critical essays on comics to explore a single issue as it affects a variety of comics.
