Panel Borders 400: Understanding Scott McCloud
Starting a month of show about creators whose passion for comics leads them to do more than just create strips for the medium, on the 400th episode of Panel Borders, Alex Fitch talks to Scott McCloud, one of the masters of modern comic books, about his career so far.
The artist is probably best known for his guides about the medium of sequential art such as Understanding Comics (1993), which led to The New York Times describing the creator as “a sort of Marshall McLuhan of comics”. However McCloud is also a great comic book creator in his own right, returning to the medium of fiction with an epic 500 page magical realist graphic novel The Sculptor, recently released by SelfMadeHero, and penning the beloved superhero series Zot! in the 1980s.
