Scott McCloud (born 10 June 1960, USA) is an American comic artist and theorist. After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration from Syracuse University, he created his lighthearted comic strip ‘Zot!’. It was published by Eclipse Comics from 1984 to 1990 and won several prizes. Subsequent comics include ‘Destroy!!’ and ‘The New Adventures of Abraham Lincoln’, as well as the writing of DC’s ‘Superman Adventures’ and ‘Superman: Strength’.
McCloud is best known as the creator of ‘Understanding Comics’, the most influential study on comics since Will Eisner’s ‘Comics and Sequential Art’. What’s more, ‘Understanding Comics’ is a comic itself, so actually it is nicer, easier, more understandable and illustrative than Eisner’s classic work. Accessible and intelligent, ‘Understanding Comics’ stands as the best publication on the medium to date.
