Bryan Hitch is a very accomplished artist who has drawn for The Avengers, Fantastic Four, The Ultimates and Captain America. The 128-page Bryan Hitch's Ultimate Comics Studio looks at his process on creating comics. It's available as paperback and hardcover.
This book isn't a step-by-step tutorial book. It's for the intermediate artists and assumes you already know the basics to drawing comics - things like perspective and figure drawing.
The main chapters are on storytelling, composition, drawing and a bit on the finding work. It doesn't cover all aspects on drawing comics but those covered are really insightful.
Bryan Hitch provides tips and analysis on the different drawing stages from roughs and layouts to inks and colour. Using his own panels as examples, he breaks them down and explains his thought process, specifically on the different areas to improve on and why they are drawn the way they are. The commentary is concise and easy to follow.
I wish there could be more pages. It's a great book.
Highly recommended to artists who want to improve their work.
