This is a book for anyone of any age who wants to create their very own comics. The books author, Stan Lee, is a major comic book artist and editor and helped create so many of the iconic characters that we see in today's comics. Anyway, let's get to the things that this book features. It features great instruction, it tells the tools that are needed, etc. The things that it covers are. . . human figures, shapes, perspective, action, backrounds, layouts, cinematics, penciling, inking, coloring, and more. Here are some other things to consider.

IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER TO COMICS

If you are a beginner to comic drawing, you should get this book. It provides great instruction for the newcomers to comic creation.

IF YOU ARE AN AVERAGE COMIC ARTIST

If you are an average comic artist, this book is really great because it offers little details such as wording and panel size and layout. It really does offer good details to make your art better.

IF YOU ARE A PRO COMIC ARTIST

If you are a proffetional comic artist, than you really don't need this.

THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT GOOD ABOUT THIS BOOK

The things that are not good about this book are these; it relies heavily that you have computer software and scanners and drawing tablets, etc. It really needs to teach you more about how to draw it yourself, instead of teaching you to color your art the normal way, it mainly teaches how to digitally ink and color your art. Even though it may look better and be easier, I just want to know how to do it the pen-and-paper way. Thanks for reading! If it was helpful, click "yes". Thanks!

    My spider sense is tingling that this is the best how-to book ever!

    Stan Lee's how to draw comics was an excellent guide of instructions on how to make your own comics just like the man himself, all while providing you with history
    and back stories of his life and of the comics he's made and others have made throughout history! If your looking for how to draw your own comics, then you've got the right book. Stan Lee will provide you with every single
    step you need to create your own comic books from penciling, to inking and coloring, and even perspectives. He also lets you know all the tools you will need along the way like drawing tablets, drafting tools, rulers, and of course pens and pencils!
    And while you slowly start to become a comic book artist like Stan Lee you also learn a lot about the history of comic books and how they've evolved throughout history and changed in tone. Some things you'll learn are how comics went from their friendly
    silver age in the 1950's of superheroes just saving the day to later times when they started to allow darker aspects and educational things like drugs to avoid in issues of books like the amazing Spider-man. So buy this book today and let Stan the man Lee induldge
    you in the history of his work and comic book creators like him all while telling a story of their history!

    I'm making an ethnography about comic book fans and this book didn't provide insight on how such a fan base started and information on all the comic books that they love and how they're made.
