Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kids-and many adults-love action heroes. Thousands of comics offer flying and fighting heroes with amazing powers in eternal battle with evil villains, robots, and aliens. Yamamoto (50 Nifty Space Aliens To Draw), who has been in the superhero comic business for nearly 20 years, teaches how the pros produce 22-page comics month after month. The manual covers facial expressions, costumes and weapons, motion, superpowers, and complex fight scenes. A final chapter deals with script format, layouts, panels, and pacing. Yamamoto gives us a more detailed volume than Ben Caldwell's Action! Cartooning, though both are brief. Recommended, particularly for YA collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
