Scott McCloud comic
A "How to" graphic novel on the creation of "Comics" (sequential art). This is the third installment of Scott McCloud's educational graphic novels: Understanding Comics being the first and Reinventing Comicsbeing the second.
A young Clark Kent watches in awe as his supernatural abilities steadily grow, and he stands at the brink of a new world of power and possibilities. But for the first time, he finds reason to question the limits that his adopted parents have placed on him. Confronting the consequences of his actions, Superman must forge in steel the moral world-view that proves to be the source of Superman's real strength!
David Smith is giving his life for his art - literally. Thanks to a deal with Death, the young sculptor gets his childhood wish: to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding what to create is harder than he thought, and discovering the love of his life at the eleventh hour isn't making it any easier. This is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and a gorgeous portrait of the world's greatest city. It's also about the small, warm, human moment of everyday life. Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work, now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking new work.
Zot! is about a young girl, Jenny, who finds and befriends a superhero named Zachary T. Paleozogt (or Zot for short) from an alternate dimension.
