Awesome Book! This book is written for anyone looking to create comics, and especially anyone looking to create and self- publish their work. I'm a self-taught comics artist working the whole process alone and this book gave some great insight into simple but hard-to-find things like what dimensions a page should be and how to care for your tools. It also comes with "homework" you can do at the end of each lesson to put to use what you've learned. Definitely worth it!
