If comics is a giant dome, with your story locked inside, The Field Guide to Graphic Literature presents you with 28 different philosophical doors into that world. The practicality of this book, and its acknowledgment of the myriad of avenues and practices in comics, makes me feel inspired as both a creator and a teacher.
