This review is from: How to Draw Comics the "Marvel" Way (Paperback)
Some people warned me when I was thinking about buying this book that it wouldn't help me in developing a drawing skill because it was not a "How to Draw Book", but man were they wrong. Stan Lee' enthusiasm shines like a light house in the dark throughout the book, helping the reader 'get into the mood' and John Buscema' art work is (as per usual) fantastic. Not only does it help develop your skill but begins from scratch and is an amazing book for the begginer (more so than an intermediate artist). In my view the only thing missing is a little splash of colour in the pages that follow the front cover. If you want to learn to draw comics books (not only the hero and villian figures but also objects, perspective, inking, rendering [shading], front cover design and almost everything else you could think of. then this is for you.

I feel I should vindicate you by mentioning this book was actually recommended to me by a professional illustrator as a good 'how to draw' guide, regardless of whether I wanted to go into graphic novel drawing professionally. Great review !
