What? You haven't rushed out and bought Kerry Gammill's book, yet? You claim to love comic books and movies and still you haven't raced across the city like a superhero to find it? Well, you're missing out on wonders from other worlds and treasures from the most exciting adventures that ever happened right here on earth. Kerry Gammill is a superb illustrator and a fantastic storyteller; talents he has on display all through this excellent primer for anyone wishing to enter the comics or film business. From his humble beginnings doing 'fanzines' to drawing SPIDER-MAN and SUPERMAN to designing fantastic characters for movies and TV, Gammill gives lots of insight and information for those would-be artists out there trying to get their foot in the door. But most of all he gives you page after page of gorgeous artwork! Boy, his HULK and SUPERMAN designs are amazing! Both are projects that were dropped by the studios at the time but now you can see never before published material prepared during pre-production of each. What are you waiting for? Order this terrific book today and be prepared to spend hours observing each graceful pencil and ink line while getting psyched up for becoming a major league illustrator for the comics and movies!Was this review helpful?

Don't be put off by the title! You need not be an aspiring artist to appreciate this wonderful collection of illustrations by comics and film visualist Kerry Gammill. While there are certainly some useful and inspiring notes by the artist for those interested in a career in graphic illustration, KERRY GAMMILL'S DRAWING MONSTERS AND HEROES FOR FILM AND COMICS is really designed for anyone who simply appreciates outstanding illustration in general, and Mr. Gammill's talents in particular. Found between its covers is page after page of eye-popping, gorgeous illustration, covering this remarkable artist's contributions to the worlds of imagination, both printed and projected. While Gammill's work is well known in the comics media, here is a rare and fascinating opportunity to appreciate his dazzling gift for graphic interpretation of characters, technologies, and costumes destined for the 'silver screen'. My only criticism?--that the book is not twice as big. When you come across a talent this engaging, you simply don't want the fun to end! KERRY GAMMILL'S DRAWING MONSTERS AND HEROES FOR FILM AND COMICS is an excellent gift choice for anyone even remotely interested in the craft and artistry involved in 'illustrated imagineering'.Was this review helpful?
