Gr 5–8—This collection goes beyond many how-to-draw books. In Villains, Heroes, and Action, Lee focuses on creating superhero cartoon characters in both classic comic-book and anime styles. Young artists are encouraged to start with basic forms and then define their subjects, gradually adding details until the picture is complete. As he demonstrates the drawings, the author explains how to use posing, angle of perspective, and careful composition to make illustrations have more impact. The remaining three titles focus on other aspects of creating graphic novels, including storyboarding, designing a catchy cover, page layout, and inking and coloring techniques. Despite a few small typographical errors, this series is likely to be a popular choice for aspiring graphic-novel artists.
