I am working my way through this book. I am learning as i go. When i am done, i plan to get my story and start...this book is divided into lessons. the writers have been there, done it and now teach it. This is their lesson plan. The US is better (with some research) at training artists to make a living out of art, what was once called 'commercial art'. Hers in the UK, not so much. And the information can be hard to find and learning a battle. If you want to do a graphic novel, get this book. The information you will get is great, the structured lessons will teach you something, and that is what you need.

Very much not a digital age book, I found the approach very archaic, if your trying to do anything on the computer this is not the book , its all ink and process white, and gets a little convoluted explaining things which made me glaze over at times. I like Abel's work so was disappointed.
