Format: Paperback
I thought this was a very useful manual. There is only ~7 pages devoted to drawing, and the rest is focused on graphic storytelling with a lot information and insights that I have not seen in other related books. He discusses how to use the camera to create dramatic flow, how and why to crop a panel, how to break down a script into pages and panels, plus other stuff.

In regards to the art work, there is a lot of visual information to illustrate his points. They also show the various stages of the process that goes into a finished copy.

I also liked how he showed how to create pages focused on action as well as pages focused on character.

I have been looking for a book like this for a while. It goes beyond drawing a comic and gets into script breakdown and panel design. There are a millions books on how to draw comics, this is the first book that I have found that walks you through the process of actually developing an entire book from start to finish. If you are looking for more than a book on art, this is it. Highly recommended.

One of the best books I've been exposed to on how to say what you want in visual storytelling. Very inspiring work!

7 of 12 people found the following review helpful By James P. Williams Jr. on October 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
Of all the comic book drawing titles I've laid hands on, this had to be one of the fastest I returned to the bookshelf. The most interesting piece of this book visually is the front cover. The rest of the book is black and white with exception of the back cover.

The lack of color isn't a particular sore point mind you, a good number of manga drawing books are done in black and white. The problem here is that it's the poorest example of a book of this type I've ever seen. I would like to think it was just a copy from a bad print run as the black ink was far from crisp and overall very light throughout this book.

There's the standard basic information on how to draw this that and the other and what tools to use that can be found easily in a dozen other books. The manner in which all this information was put together, the book's design ...it's bland, uninviting and in places text just seems overly crammed onto the pages.

I doubt that much if any of the layout of the book was solely on the author and its unfortunate that Buckler's effort be given such shoddy treatment by the publisher. I'd think any publisher committing funds to such a project might check out the competition and not release a book that is just painful to look at.

As I've said in other book reviews don't take my word for it... but please go and look at it in your local bookstore or library before buying. Take a look at some other titles in this area to compare and contrast, you'll be glad you did.
