Understanding comics: Scott McCloud on TED.com

In this unmissable look at the magic of comics, Scott McCloud bends the presentation format into a cartoon-like experience, where colorful diversions whiz through childhood fascinations and imagined futures that our eyes can hear and touch. Listen for a moving meditation on the nature of vision — and for four indelible rules of life. (Recorded February 2005 in Monterey, California. Duration: 17:08.)
