Product description


"Every aspect of comics creation is covered in this enlightening, accessible guide presented in a comic-strip format."--Booklist (Editor's Choice)

"A guide to creating comics that is as thoughtful and entertaining as the best-loved work in the field, both enjoyable and accessible to casual fans of the form and the new gold standard for artists who want to create their own comics, manga, and graphic novels.--Bookslut

"More than a how-to, the book goes beyond simple instruction, digging into the real dirt of creating comics."--Kirkus Reviews

"Scott McCloud's brilliant treatise on the inner workings of cartoonists will delight amateur artists and curious fans alike."--Salon

"In this, McCloud's third nonfiction book about comics, he has produced his most significant achievement to date, and that's really saying something."--Cory Doctorow

"Only Scott McCloud could have organized his thoughts on comics like this. Scott's talent as a cartoonist not only makes him intimate to insights no outsider can see, but also gives him the power to show it to the world."--Jeff Smith
