Format: Paperback
I would not recommend this book if you are new to comic book art, there are many other titles such as, "How to draw comics the Marvel way" that would be more beneficial for a beginner. Although some of the material in this title duplicates that of other tuition books of this nature, Drawing Cutting Edge Comics is a lot more contemporary. The sections on anatomy are very useful, as is the advice on how to draw comic book heroines and villainesses! The chapter on page design helps the aspiring artist to think creatively and offers good suggestions on how to make each page grip the reader and achieve maximum impact. It also contains good advice on ways to create original characters and encourages "out of the box" thinking. If you're looking for inking or colouring techniques you'll be disappointed, although the subjects are covered it is more to show modern examples of how the industry has developed and does not offer any practical guidance on inking or colouring. That said however, if you're already proficient at inking then you'll probably gain something from the examples, but nothing you wouldn't get from buying a recent comic book. All in all this is a good resource for comic book artists and I'm sure even experienced artists would make their work more dynamic by applying some of its techniques.

I have been looking for a book that could be used as an aid in teaching the strange and fantastic to my art pupils but that at the same time provide me with the stepping stones to further develop my own practice. This is such a book.Its approach to tricky postures is quite useful and anatomical accuracy, both details and generalities, is amply developed throughout. I reccommend it as a must have to artists, teachers and pupils alike.

I bought a bunch of these books all in one go and this one is definitely the best of the bunch. It has everything, save from digital coloring tips.

I'd say the author/book assume you are not completely clueless about drawing so it is light on explanations. But it features plenty of useful examples.

I used to have this book but someone borrowed it and I never got it back. I love this book as it gives great insight on what facial expressions, hands and feet look like. I don't like any of Chris Harts other books as the style looks strange (Manga). I bought this book used and it was in better condition than I thought. It took a bit to get here but shipping from the US to UK takes a few weeks. Overall good service.
