I didn't pick up Stan Lee's How To Draw Comics for the purpose of learning how to draw, Letter or color. I'm already well versed in that part of Comic Book creation. You can check out myDeviant Art Gallery at http://chiprocks1.deviantart.com for some of my color samples if you're inclined to do so.

My main objective to giving this book a spin was just to update my knowledge and see if there were / are new things that currently being utilize by amateurs and professionals alike. After reading it, t

Stan Lee's How to Draw Comics is a starter guide to drawing comics aimed at beginners.

It introduces the world of comics and what you need to create them. It covers the basic topics like drawing, storytelling, finding work, etc. There are lots of useful comic creation tips discussed, complimented by examples from popular artists like Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, Frank Cho and the likes.

This isn't a technical book so there aren't any how-to or step-by-step tutorials.

For me this book was a little bit confusing. On one side its written like somebody is talking to a 12 year old and wants him to inspire to be a great comic artist, on the other side the exemples are very intricate and of a very high standart. They scared me and the whole time I was thinking "how on earth I'm going to draw this". What this book does it gives a rough overview about different aspects in making a comic. It talks a little bit of everything but doesn't go into much detail. Good for pe ...more

Good information on comics, drawing and the industry--especially for fans of Marvel comics. I'm not a Marvel or DC fan. I appreciate their role, but they are not my style. Lee came across as being over dramatic like a side show barker. Still I respect his career and influence--for better or worse--on the industry.

Sometimes I would draw, so I would look at some books like this. Love the cover. The art styles throughout were good. A fun book.
