Shelves: art-books
A nice, thick book that covers everything from figures to creating your own comic book.

This is a good book that provides many examples and exercises for the aspiring manga artist.

It seems much more complete then most 'how-to-draw' books but that results in a fairly large book that may intimidate some readers.

Notes
An excellent resource for comic/manga artist.

Learning Curve
Low: Good for new readers.
