"Thierry Groensteen brings the eyes of a fierce critic to ten comics that should be on every reader's shelves. As one of the most acclaimed scholars and theorists of the ninth art, Groensteen in this exciting new translation turns his attention to the evolution of the form through the close reading of some of its most celebrated works: Watchmen, Epileptic, Fun Home, and more. Insightful, eclectic, and wide-ranging, Groensteen demonstrates once again why he is one of the most important comics scholars in the world."
--Bart Beaty, professor of English at the University of Calgary and author of Comics Versus Art

"Thierry Groensteen is undoubtedly the leading voice in comics theory of the last decades. This book is a wonderful opportunity to also discover his numerous close-reading skills and qualities. Groensteen's work has the ideal mix of theoretical framing and analytical sharpness, and his direct yet utterly precise style ideally matches his commitment to an art we'd better start writing with a capital A."
--Jan Baetens, professor of cultural studies at the University of Leuven and coauthor of The Graphic Novel: An Introduction
