Rating:4 out of 5
Stan Lee is an iconic figure in the comic book industry, most known for comic book characters such as Spider-Man. If you’ve seen any of the Spider-Man movies, you’ve seen Stan Lee at least once. Comic books are an interesting visual storytelling medium, and I’ve always been a fan of comic book heroes. STAN LEE’S HOW TO DRAW COMICS is a great book for anyone interested in entering the comic book world.
The book covers many basics of drawing specifically for comic books, from the tools you’ll need, to drawing figures, to drawing backgrounds, to inking, lettering, and coloring your comic book artwork. The book features many step-by-step lessons on how to draw things like anatomy, character costumes, and backgrounds. It includes the artwork of many prominent comic book artists and focuses on the characters of Marvel Comics.
I’ve read quite a few books on drawing comics, and this one is good. I especially found the section on coloring comics helpful. If you want to start drawing comics, then this book will give you the steps to start right away.
