This review is from: Comics and Sequential Art: Principles and Practices from the Legendary Cartoonist (Will Eisner Instructional Books) (Paperback)
I was impressed with this, the information was accessible and it was not heavy in the academic theory of comic books (like The System of Comics). The comic-style format is akin to that of Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics and makes it much more enjoyable to read, Eisner even used some of his own panels from various comic books to demonstrate the various techniques employed by comic book artists. I gave it four stars because I wish it would have been longer, it is definitely a book for beginners to be used a simple point of reference for terminology and examples. I would recommend getting this with Scott McCloud's book Understanding Comics.
