Scott McCloud has also written _Understanding Comics_, which I recommend to anyone who's interested in understanding things, regardless of whether they're fascinated by comics. It gets into how time is handled in comics (and why a lot of what's important is between the panels), why simplified images can be so emotionally effective, that there are different percentages of sorts of scenes between American and Japanese comics, and probably any quantity of cool stuff that I'm not remembering at the moment.

Good news: November 30th isn't opposite Philcon or Thanksgiving/Darkover.

Scott McCloud's tour.
