So how do I cite a comic book, anyway?

Problem: you need a works cited page for your visual analysis. For most of you, that will only include one citation–the comic book your image comes from. But how do you cite that? It’s not exactly like most forms of text you cite.

Solution: good news! Someone has done the work of figuring that out for you (it’s not me). There’s a great website called Comic Art in Scholarly Writing, and they’ve created a citation style guide just for you. Well, maybe not you specifically, but for all of those among us who need to know how to create an academic citation for a comic book. Go to their Citation Guide to see explanations and examples of how to do this.
