Scott McCloud Visit

Posted on Posted in Celebrity Run-Ins, Reviews/Commentary

I saw comics teaching sensation Scott McCloud speak at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design(MCAD).  He had been  teaching a class there all week and gave a free lecture to the public this evening.

While the lecture was  brief, it did feature an interesting array of internet-based comics examples.  Of note was  the concept of structuring the comic book story so that it flowed almost as a continuous  ‘scroll’ from left to right or as a magnified chain of panels that the user could zoom in on.
