"You are in store for a pretty in-depth tutorial of what to do and not to do while drawing comic book characters ... some of today's so-called top talent would do well to take a look at Tom's in-yo-face style of teaching the fundamentals". -- Ain't It Cool News, September 27, 2007

I can see he was trying to be humorous throughout this book, but he was just flat-out un-funny. He has some sort of an immature humor in here, and sometimes they can be insulting to you as a reader in general. Plus it kinda hurt the book making it seem child-ish. So one point taken down for lame humor, skipping the details in how to color, and bad quality design of each page making them look like they're for ten year olds. I think that's what he was trying to do? I know I'm being pretty brutal, but that's how I felt when I read this book.
What I love about this book is his "Don't" and "Do" category explaining what you should draw and what you should NOT draw. That was definitely a fun read! All his art and explaining how to draw exactly what you want are very good. You won't be disappointed. I guarantee you. The problem is the design of the pages around his drawings, they made this book look like it's only for childeren. That's one flaw in this book including his weird humor. It's just hard to explain.
Again, this is a very good "how to draw comics" book. It will be worth your money to get it. Just beware of weird feeling of "Am I reading a childeren's book?".
