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!
