February 8th, 2009 by MarkMonlux

Scott McCloud will be giving a lecture titled “Comics: A Medium in Transition”

American comics are changing fast. Bolstered by the literary ambitions of the “graphic novel” movement, a flood of international influences and the growing importance of new technologies, the comics landscape shifts regularly in surprising and increasingly unpredictable directions. Author and comics artist Scott McCloud puts all these trends into perspective in a fast-moving visual presentation.

Scott McCloud has been writing and drawing comics since 1984. His book Understanding Comics was a New York Times Notable book for 1994, and is available in 16 languages. McCloud has lectured on comics and digital media at Google, MIT, Pixar, Microsoft, and The Smithsonian Institution. McCloud’s online comics can be found at

The lecture is free and the details can be found here.
