Sequart publisher Julian Darius announced on June 25, 2021, the release of How to Analyze and Review Comics, a new book edited by professor Forrest C. Helvie of Norwalk Community College on comic analysis and review. The book features articles on various topics ranging from inking, colouring, lettering, reading protocols, formats, criticism, and even web comics.
