Book Review: The Art of Greg Capullo

The Art of Greg Capullo

The book is a collection of some of his cover works, notably Sam and Twitch, and Spawn, other titles, unpublished works and some personal pieces such as the one on the cover page.

The art is fantastic, especially the Spawn art, which are deadly. The use of blacks and lighting is great. I like the back portion of the book which features more of the comic art drawings, with coloured filled onto the fantastic line art.

Most of the art here are digital with the last 20 pages on black and white sketches. There are strangely no comic book panels featured. For many of the illustrations, which are the covers, they are printed to fill a page, with a smaller version on the opposite page. The smaller version is exactly the same, which is really redundant and could have been replaced with the pre-coloured ink sketches, or even more art.

I've also read that there are some issues with the binding for the paperback, specifically the glue holding the book together. Mine's the hardcover version and doesn't have that problem.

Overall it's still a pretty nice book for the fans.
