About the Author
Manuel Auad has been writing articles exploring and extolling the work of artists and illustrators since the early 1960s.

After releasing three volumes featuring the comics and illustrations of Alex Toth-the first of which, the aptly-titled Toth, won the Eisner Award for "Best Comic Related Book-Manuel has since published books on Jordi Bernet, Alex Niño and Franklin Booth, as well as a portfolio of Frank Brangwyn's Stations of the Cross.

As a young artist, I had the chance to spend an afternoon with Dorne. I felt like I knew him all my life. He was a facinating person and the advice he offered gave direction to much of my career.
Dorne's unique ability is really seen in his preliminary drawings. When you look at an illustration by Al Dorne, you can't help but marvel at the way he captured hands. Through the years, I learned a lot studying his preliminary work. The book contains a few of his preliminary drawings but I wish there were more.
He was not much for color, but his drawing was nonpareil. He was also a
marvelous natural cartoonist.
