Chapter 1 - Understanding Comics
I think the point of this chapter was essentially to say what is and is not actually a comic, as well as the importance of the medium as a separate thing from the creator. After reading this I like to think of a comic as a storyboard. A good example of this is how The Watchmen graphic novel was turned into a feature film. I think the important thing that McCloud is trying to get across is that it as long as it has 2 frames a comic separates itself from being just a picture with a caption.
