Scott McCloud (scottmccloud.com) is a well versed cartoonist and one of the most prolific comic theorists. His practice-and-theory way of doing things means he can get pretty meta when talking about comics. Like, when he discusses the significance of framing, or the space between the frames, also known as "the gutter."

McCloud's publications show this double-barreled approach. His comic theory book 'Understanding Comics' (1993) is a seminal work. It's an incredibly inspiring read that helps you understand why comics is a unique visual language as well as a true art form in its own right.

McCloud also talks about his most recent non fiction work, 'The Sculptor', which came out in 2015. A story about a sculptor whom Death gives 200 days to live in exchange for the power to sculpt anything he can imagine. Like his non fiction work, The Sculptor is a story that works on many levels.
