A Bibliography of Comics Theory

Here is a suggested bibliography for comics theory. There's more to read, of course, but these will give you a few major touchstones in comics scholarship.  I would especially recommend Understanding Comics as a popular (rather than rigorously scholarly) central text.
A Comics Studies ReaderAlternative Comics: An Emerging LiteratureThe System of ComicsComic Book Culture: Fanboys and True Believers (Studies in Popular Culture)Comic Book Nation: The Transformation of Youth Culture in AmericaUnderstanding Comics: The Invisible ArtComics and Sequential Art: Principles and Practices from the Legendary Cartoonist (Will Eisner Instructional Books)
