YA A book full of illustrations which show students how to draw action poses, capture facial expressions, de velop a comic story line, break it into panels, create appropriate layout, and understand application and presenta tion. This three-part book begins with a history of comics and looks at examples from around the world. The middle sec tion is the most useful for YAs, as it explains the creative process needed to master the comic format. The third sec tion equips students to publish their products. Many high-school students are fascinated by drawing and reading comics; this title will undoubtedly be a big hit. Jane Sermas, Episcopal High School, Bellaire
