The Art of Comics
A Philosophical Approach
“The Art of Comics would make a fine addition to any undergraduate reading list, introducing as it does several important notions in contemporary aesthetics.” (The Journal of Aesthetics & Art Criticism, 1 November 2013)"The Art of Comics: A Philosophical Approach is the first-ever anthology on the aesthetics of comics in the analytic tradition. As such, it is predictably rigorous, but, perhaps more surprisingly, it exhibits a very deep love of comics as well as an intimate and close knowledge of the art form in all its diversity and detail. The book is a splendid addition to the growing body of work on the philosophies of the arts."
—Noël Carroll, The Graduate Philosophy Program, CUNY
"A new, rich topic is always welcome in philosophy. Comics are just such a topic in the philosophy of art, and this excellent collection is a splendid opportunity to explore the subject."
—Ted Cohen, University of Chicago
