    Going through the book a second time. There is the same impression of underachiever, but overall the pictures have seldom something in common with the text so the information is quite low even for a book in this category.

    This is such a great book for people starting out who want a fun overview of the comics world, especially those interested in going the Indie and self-publishing route. I thoroughly enjoyed it and got a lot of inspiring ideas.

    The author is trying his best. But the hints are convoluted and over complicate the newcomer.

    I am looking forward to trying some of these methods of drawing comics as a form of expressing myself

    I've used exercises from this book in my college classroom and used other exercises with 8th graders in a half-day zine making workshop. This is a splendid book for anyone who wants to get better at visual storytelling. I doubt you will do every one of the 52 exercises, but even if you do 10 or 20, it will up your game. The exercises are meant to improve your plotting, pacing, and all around cartooning skills.

The exercises are meant to improve your plotting, pacing, and all around cartooning skills. The author has a lot of connections in the comics industry and many well known artists contribute their favorite exercises. I especially like Robyn Chapman's attitude. She talks about living the dream. I find it refreshing and helpful for aspiring comics artists. I will paste it below... "Living the Dream For many of us, the dream means making a living, possibly a good one, from drawing comics. That dream does come true--for a small number of people. The rest of us need to build a counter narrative to The Dream. For the past seven years, I've worked in what can vaguely be called the comics industry--as an administrator, a teacher, an editor, a publisher, a project manger, and now an author. If I had waited around for that comics drawing job I would have long since starved. So, am I disqualified as being professional? Hardly. All being a professional means is that you take cartooning seriously and approach it with an industrious work ethic. With a little effort and a bit of guidance, we can all be professionals, and each fashion a version of The Dream to our personal trajectories." from Drawing Comics Lab.

    I appreciate this book. Very easy to follow along, with diagrams that actually make sense. Some of the other artists who show up in the book seem really disinterested (like she of the one-pager section. But this was inspirational, and got me thinking that I can actually do this!

    Very thorough introduction to making your own comic! It was interesting, and it kept me entertained. It was also full of prompts/projects to help develop your own characters, comics, etc.

    I'm due for a revisit with this. There's lots of content inside, and I especially love the instructions on making little one-pages and books. I'm due for a revisit with this. There's lots of content inside, and I especially love the instructions on making little one-pages and books.
