A short but interesting biography starts the book off, talking about his career and the different projects he works on. There are stories on he he started out started drawing figures in the sand with a twig, using shoe polish for inking, doing freelance illustrations, breaking in into the comics industry and so on.

The art in the book contains work from his black and white comic book covers, comic panels, illustrations never published and a few traditional medium paintings at the back. The style ranges from simple stylized designs to intricate line drawings with amazing hatching.

It's pretty cool to see the different style of inking in various pieces. Sometimes they are fine and rough, sometimes bold and strong.

Alex Nino has worked on Disney's project such as Treasure Planet, Mulan, The Emperor's New Groove, and Alantis. None of those production work are featured in the book, sadly. This book consists more of his work relating to comics.

Overall, this is a nice volume for those who like the comic drawing style of Alex Nino.
