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.
