Early life

McCloud was born in 1960[1] in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Willard Wise (an inventor and engineer) and Patricia Beatrice McLeod,[2][3] and spent most of his childhood in Lexington, Massachusetts.[4] He decided he wanted to be a comics artist in 1975, during his junior year in high school.

Syracuse University's Illustration program was closest to his career goals. He selected that school and major,[1][4] and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1982.[5]
