Years ago I read a bunch of How To Do Comics books, most of those were a rip off.This book is good I m debating buying a copy or memorizing where it is in the Library Currently it s in the Newest book section It s not as good as Lurene Haines books on the Business of Comics, but it is helpful This won t be the among the first coupla books I recommend for Comics How To, But it ll be at the top of the next handful I hope a lot of people take this one out of the Libury Library Simsbury.
A good introduction to generating ideas, building your confidence, plotting and creating a story, laying out and drawing a graphic novel or comic book, and making connections in the industry It s a quick read in a graphic style with personal examples and encouragement from the author As you can tell by the title, the book is aimed toward aspiring comic writers and artists, but it is also useful for readers and for creators of fiction in other forms.I bought my copy from the author herself when I [...]
This is a great how to guide for those looking to get into writing their first comic or graphic novel Aimed at young adults, a reader of any age could get some great ideas, especially in the planning process A lot of it could be used for storytelling in general.
This book was alright It s pretty simplistic I was surprised that the reviews are so over the top on Of course, it is geared towards 7th grade and up but honestly, this might have appealed to me when I was 7 or 8 By the time I was in 7th grade I would have found it ever so slightly condescending The writer seems to assume that the majority of graphic novels are made up stories, but she does throw in Harvey Pekar s American Splendor Granted, the term graphic novel does imply fiction, but graphic [...]
This book may have been designed to help you create graphic novels or comic books, but the information inside is relevant to writing in general Most of the tips and tools can be applied to any form of writing, as a basic guideline to follow to create a fantastic and entertaining story.It even helps you deal with writer s block.So a very useful book indeed
I don t really know how to rate this book, since I ve never read any other books about making your own graphic novel I really liked how she broke everything up into easy steps I really liked her advice on writing she had some different approaches that I plan to implement into my Creative Writing class.
A great book on creating a Graphic Novel The book gives many helpful suggestions and uses many images to illustrate these ideas The text is light hearted but gives serious attention to the goal of creating a well thought out graphic novel A fine addition to any creative person s library.
A good quick introduction to graphic noveling The illustrations are cute and topical, and it s easy to get into.
This is one of those moments If only I could give this a zero
It s a really cute book for young people, but there s definitely something to be gained by readers of any age I liked how simply it went through all the information.
