02 Sep 2008 Comics for Communication
It was interesting that Google used a comic strip to effectively communicate the reasons why they are introducing a new browser called Chrome. I was especially taken in by the discussion of processes and tabs, a topic that would normally be rather dry.
Comics were recently used to communicate legal concepts to First Nation tribes in BC.
Geoff Brown recommends “Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art”, a book that discusses the use of comics for communication. It was written in 1994, but is still #1 in Amazon’s “Cartooning” category.
