A bit of a marketing ploy, but some very good info.
Let me begin by saying that if you want to learn how to draw comics, this should be the 2nd book you buy (the 1st being Christopher Hart's 'Drawing Cutting-Edge Comics'). While the information on facial proportions can be vague, the book puts a lot of emphasis on what you actually need to draw comics, not just pin-ups. The focus on storytelling is what gives this an edge over most drawing books. The virtual lack of color is not a downside; it is actually an upside, because your pencilled pictures will not be in color, making this book easier to compare them with. The biggest downside to this book that I can think of is that almost all of the art is from existing DC Comics. While it's good to show art from lots of artists, I think that it's mostly just crass marketing. However, this book deserves four stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
