      Abstract

      This review in graphic form responds to Simon Grennan’s 2017 monograph ‘A Theory of Narrative Drawing’, describing its form and key ideas, and commenting on its contribution to the field, whilst enacting the graphic mark-making which is its focus. The review concludes that though some more framing material would have been useful for readers, the book repays a second reading and makes an invaluable contribution to the view of comics as an active process of meaning-making.
