5.0 out of 5 stars Eisner is THE MASTER!, 14 Feb 2006
This review is from: Comics and Sequential Art (Hardcover)
Eisner is definantly the master of comic books, even though he's not with us anymore. This amazing book is the definant companion to any other instructional art book, whether it be 'How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way' or 'Comics Crash Course'. Mr Eisner shows you how movie frames compare to comic panels, how calligraphy inspired certain posture and the effect of unlimited space. He provides storytelling examples on writing a comic script, creating beautiful composition and the preparation before doing the work.
Other essential elements you'll learn about include why most comics are not considered English literature material, how an artist lays down the 'acting' for his characters and how silent comics can still communicate their message to the reader!
Like all the professionals, I will start with this book whenever I draft any piece. Stick with Eisner. He, alongside other greats like the Manga-god Osamu Tezuka, invented these techniques.
