Scott McCloud, comics artist and interpreter, has been making comics since he was in high school, and got his first real comics' job shortly thereafter in 1983 at DC Comics. From then till now McCloud has produced non-fiction books, innumerable fiction comics, and has given presentations at a variety of institutions. McCloud's book, Understanding Comics, has played a pedagogical role in Carleton's classrooms, and captured the imagination of its students. Watch Scott McCloud at the 2005 TED Conference.
