Do you need a book that tells you how to make comics?

This is that book.

Jessica Abel and Matt Madden do an amazing job putting together the basics of how comics should be made -- not only for potential comics creators, but for the classroom. Each chapter has homework, additional reading, and a whole lot of examples from amazing authors.

This book is also great for teachers or librarians who are interested in learning more about the behind-the-scenes comics-making process. What goes into how your favorite graphic novels are made? Find out here!

Ingrid Hardy I own this book, and agree with your review. It is a great starting point for learning about creating comics and makes it very acessible for everyone, in my opinion.
