    From Steven Grant

    Kind of unfortunate the cover so resembles those cheesy 'How To Create Comics/Manga/Good Girl Art/etc.' books at bookstores all over. This collects the WRITE NOW!/ DRAW! crossover stunt of a year or so ago, but stands apart from most of the 'creating comics' books on the market by taking the reader step-by-step through the process, including discussions of things like why some types of character poses are better than others, guided by people who've actually worked as professional editors, writers and artists. While the comic they produce - it runs here as well, in 'published' form as well as in stages - isn't great shakes, and the 'directions' swing toward the Marvel/DC milieu Danny and Mike come out of, here the journey is the destination, and a clearer map will be hard to come by. Again, indispensable if you're interested in producing your own comics.
