it was amazing
bookshelves: art, comics

This was exactly what I was looking for. I'm glad that it was, too, because I believe it's the only book that covers creating digital comics so thoroughly. There's obviously more than can be contained here, but I'd list this as essential. Might check out the forthcoming digital color book DC is doing also.

The one thing this book did for me is make the whole process doable. I can see from start to finish how I could do this and that's huge. It's still a lot of work, but now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Also this book opened my eyes to things I would have considered "cheating." It's almost as if I needed permission and now I have it :)

There was some info about automating a lot of steps in Photoshop (beyond basic actions) which sounded intriguing, but I don't see that I have a use for it unless I get into a high pressure production timeline.
