Midterm Examination

Using the reading of Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics Ch. 1, I want you to write a 3-5 paragraph (using a blue book), summary and analysis of reading.

You need to:

  1. Make sure you have 3-5 paragraphs

  2. Provide a summary of the reading, including at least 1 quotation

  3. Provide an analysis of the reading, including at least 1 quotation – you can choose to focus on whatever you want to in terms of analysis, but this should go beyond a simple summary.

  4. Finally, evaluate the reading based on how well you think McCloud has or has not convinced you that there is more to comics than you might have previously thought.
