"Regardless, though, considered as a whole, The Art ofComicsis an excellent collection and one which is likely to provokespirited debate and serve as a spur to further research withinAnglo-American philosophy (and philosophy more generally) into thissadly neglected art form. I, for one, look forward to these futuredevelopments immensely. To quote one of the greats in the historyof comics--excelsior!." (British Journal ofAesthetics, 1 October 2013)
"The Art of Comics would make a fine addition to anyundergraduate reading list, introducing as it does severalimportant notions in contemporary aesthetics." (TheJournal of Aesthetics & Art Criticism, 1 November 2013)
