This the number one book for those who want a clear course in how to draw from the very beginning. Chapter one teaches drawing with ‘Form’ which is the first hurdle we must overcome when drawing the three-dimensional world on a two-dimensional surface. In addition to being packed with excellent information and tons of illustrations, this book is one of the most ‘digestible’ sources around. That means you will actually use it and learn from it!
From the publisher: “One of the first and still one of the best, Stan Lee’s How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way has been the primary resource for any and all who want to master the art of illustrating comic books and graphic novels.
Stan Lee, the Mighty Man from Marvel, and John Buscema, active and adventuresome artist behind the Silver Surfer, Conan the Barbarian, the Mighty Thor and Spider-Man, have collaborated on this comics compendium: an encyclopedia of information for creating your own superhero comic strips. Using artwork from Marvel comics as primary examples, Buscema graphically illustrates the hitherto mysterious methods of comic art. Stan Lee’s pithy prose gives able assistance and advice to the apprentice artist. Bursting with Buscema’s magnificent illustrations and Lee’s laudable word-magic, How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way belongs in the library of everyone who has ever wanted to illustrate his or her own comic strip.”
