FOUNDATIONS IN COMIC BOOK ART by John Paul Lowe is a not only a book about drawing comic book characters; it's a great introduction to drawing in general. The book is very helpful in showing the budding artist how to notice the shapes and forms in the things that they want to draw. Really helpful for me was the instruction on drawing perspective because that's always been a sticking point for me as an artist.
Because this is a book about drawing for comic books, after the basics are covered, the reader is introduced to the concepts that will help them to draw comic book figures. The book doesn't stop with the drawing process, however. For comic book art, there is also inking, and Lowe introduces the reader to inking techniques as well.
I found this to be a very helpful book as someone who wants to draw well and be a visual artist.
