Gr. 9-12. Scared! begins with a brief history of horror comics (mostly in the U.S.), profiles of some popular illustrators, useful tips on drawing for the genre (creating "creepy characters," for example), and advice on references and resources. The bulk of the book is dedicated to straightforward how-to, with illustrations for a gallery of ghouls showing each character broken down into basic shapes. The approach is especially suited to YA artists just developing an interest in how comics are drawn. Coloring and Lettering is an extensive look at what an artist needs to know about these subjects in order to become a professional in the comics industry--from fundamental principles of color and using computers to tools and skills needed to create a variety of styles of lettering. The book also lends insight into how and why coloring and lettering in comics have changed through the history of the industry. This is a great resource for YAs seriously interested in graphic storytelling; it will also find an appreciative audience among adults. Tina Coleman

But, if you're just looking for some good ideas or inspiration for some drawings, this could be good for you.
It has a lot of step by step guides and contains a good variety of subjects to draw. Hailing from vampires, zombies, vixens to werewolves:) This book is easily one of my favorites even if i cannot give it a top score grade... The reason why, is because it IS a bit advanced. Even if the step-by-step guides are somewhat easy to follow, if you don't have "pencil feeling", then you'll screw up a lot:S Belive me:p
But that may be just me:S It's not a bad book at all, so i can reccomend this one:) Buy it, you won't be dissapointed:)
