Do it yourself

Everyone has a compelling life story; there's no such thing as a boring childhood. If you're inspired by these graphic-novel memoirs, why not try creating your own? Making Comics by Scott McCloud—author of the groundbreaking Understanding Comics—explains in step-by-step chapters how and why comics work to illustrate a story, and how the reader can use them to tell their own. There are tips on just about every aspect of creating a comic book, from how facial muscles work to how to make the most of a text bubble to what certain postures can tell readers about a character's mood. It's a handy guide for both aspiring artists and those who simply enjoy reading graphic novels.
