    This book spent a lot of time preaching an attitude that I hope anyone interested in reading a book called the aesthetics of comics would already understand, and that is that comics are a worthwhile art form to study He also seemed to give no credit to the creators of comics both books and strips , assuming that everything a philosopher could pick up about them was a purely commercial and or accidental choice.

    One of the best explanations of how the medium communicates with readers its strengths, weaknesses, and what generally makes comics work Carrier brings an art historian s knowledge and seriousness to reexplain comics as a serious and worthwhile mode of communication.

    Interesting and well researched, but limited in that it wants to make comic strips representative of the entire art form, among other strangely delimiting moves.

    ugh so aloof Here s one reason to hate art critics He doesn t even hardly talk about comics , instead deferring to fine art and statues A LOT This was published in 2000, there was plenty to choose from back then, though admittedly not as much as today Carrier knows a lot about art, but very little about comics I wouldn t have even finished it except the work is mentioned a lot in The Art of Comics A Philosophical Approach.
