The earliest example of a repeating comic character dates back to the late 1700s.By following the growth of print technology in Europe and Asia, it is possible to understand how and why artistsacross cultures developed different strategies for telling stories with pictures.This book is much more than a history of graphic narrative across the globe. It examines broader conceptualdevelopments that preceded the origins of comics and graphic novels; how those ideas have evolved over thelast century and a half; how literacy, print technology, and developments in narrative art are interrelated; andthe way graphic narratives communicate culturally significant stories.

Grandville, Willhem Busch, Frans Masereel, Max Ernst, Saul Steinberg, Henry Darger, and LarryGonick are discussed or depicted.Read moreYou May Also LikeMaking Comics: Storytelling Secrets of Comics, Manga and Graphic NovelsThe Power of Comics: History, Form and CultureThe Rise and Reason of Comics and Graphic Literature: Critical Essays on the Form
