chapter 2 response
McClouds approach to describing the aesthetics of comics give a clear sense of how people interpret what they see. Weather what they are seeing is in a comic, a web page, or an illustration. I enjoy reading "understanding comics" because of the format along with the context. Each page has short and to the point points. Every comic is different and shows a clear example of what is being said in the text. In chapter 2 McCloud proves, through his comics, that people get the full meaning of a picture even if it is not realistic. The symbols we lean to accept and become accustom to don't need vivid detail or even have to look remotely like the real thing. People understand and accept the icons for the real thing.
