The author looks at the history of the development of comic art as a unique art form that relies equally on words and pictures to convey messages. Comic art historians offer insight into comic art's evolving place in the art world.
"Written for middle school to high school age students, the Eye on Art Series from Lucent Books provides an in-depth look into the various art movements. What makes this series special for students, however, are the beautiful full-color pictures that appear on nearly every page and the sidebars that discuss important aspects of the arts in further detail. This set is highly recommended for school and public libraries."
