Abstract:
			
In this 'New Media Age' the screen has replaced the book as the
dominant medium of communication. This dramatic change has made
image, rather than writing, the center of communication. In this
groundbreaking new book, Gunther Kress considers the effects of a
revolution that has radically altered the relation between writing and
the book. Taking into account social, economic, communicational and
technological factors, Kress explores how these changes will affect
the future of literacy.

Title: The Language of Comics
Series Title: Intertext
			
Publication Year: 2003
Publisher:	Routledge (Taylor and Francis) 
		http://www.routledge.com/
			
Author: Mario Saraceni, Assumption University 
Hardback: ISBN: 0415286700, Pages: 128, Price: U.S. $: 55.00
Paperback: ISBN: 041521422X, Pages: 128, Price: U.S. $: 15.95


Abstract:
			
The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs
of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: A core
introduction to language analysis (second edition, 2001) is the
foundation text, which is complemented by a range of 'satellite'
titles. These provide students with hands-on practical experience of
textual analysis through special topics and can be used individually
or in conjunction with Working with Texts.

The Language of Comics: 

*includes a large number of real comics, from individual frames to
full comic strips

*provides a history of comics from the end of the nineteenth century
to the present

*explores the "semiotics of comics," from the interaction between the
verbal and the visual and how texts interrelate to the way speech and
thought are reported in narrative and point of view

*makes the case for comics as multimodal texts and considers future
developments in the genre

*is user-friendly and accessible, and provides a full glossary.
