Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-While it won't replace a more traditional study of anatomy, this book covers the basics in good detail, always relating the discussion of bones and muscle groups to the exaggerated physiology found in comic books. The illustrations are lavish, often in full color, with black and white used for the drawings where color would obscure the lesson being imparted. A mixture of comic-book-proportioned anatomical drawings and finished art helps to show the transition between fact and presentation, with the text highlighting what has been emphasized as well as what has been left out to get the proper look. The last part of the book includes a discussion of how the comic-book business works and several interviews with artists, all of which drift from the topic of anatomy somewhat but is still useful and interesting. Attractively presented and educational, this title will be popular with comic-book fans who like to draw.-Paul Brink, Fairfax County Public Library, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    A Valuable Book for Comic Artists!
    I purchased this book out of desperation, looking for someway to make my comic book characters look more
    "superheroic." I was not disappointed. This is not a how to book, but it makes a very useful reference book
    for anatomy (from a comic book point of view). I highly recommend this book!

    Highly recommended

    Drawing cutting edge Anatomy is very easy to follow. The book is only a 144 pages long, but covers about all you need to know about drawing comic book action figures. I believe it is well worth the investment for comic book artist . This book covers the anatomy of the male/female body well. This book was worth the investment.
