Book Review: The Insider's Guide To Creating Comics And Graphic Novels

The Insider's Guide To Creating Comics And Graphic Novels

This isn't a tutorial book that teaches you how to draw, but more of a guide to the process of creating comics. Its goal is to help readers understand what it takes to create them, and the various storytelling techniques employed. It's sort of similar to Stan Lee's How to Draw Comics but presented differently.

The topics covered are the basics such as reading scripts, page layout, camera angles, character acting, pacing, inking, coloring and other stuff. They are covered well, but in some instances it could do well with more in-depth explanation and more examples (even though there are plenty enough). There are a couple of one-page artist profiles which are interesting to read.

If you want to learn how to draw, you've to find some other books.

This book is recommended to beginners. For more advanced guidance, you can check out Bryan Hitch's Ultimate Comics Studio.
