Review : One of the best technical books on visual story telling.
I’ve read and studied many books on this subject. It is hard to find good technical information on it. Some of the best books do have some extensive information but take some effort to understand their deeper meaning. This book is advanced and one of the best books I’ve picked up. If you are looking for a useless and childish book assuming there is one distinct way to draw a story with plenty of pretty pictures in bright colors and men in tights this is not it. The author is not some hack who’s drawn a few low quality comics and is looking for an extra paycheck. Rich Buckler is the real deal with decades of experience and know how. Make room on your shelf next to Will Eisner’s books. This book is excellent.
