Publisher Comments:

Comics are a unique form of storytelling created by talented and visionary artists. Creating Comics! is the first book to truly explore the backstories of the most talented visual artists currently practicing. Two of the most successful comic artists, Paul Gulacy and Michael Cavallaro, pen the foreword and introduction of the book, setting the tone for a truly remarkable collection of interviews from artists. Featured artists include Ryan Alexander-Tanner, Joseph Arthur, Gregory Benton, Ben Brown, Jeffrey Brown, Keith Carter, Michael Cavallaro, Amanda Conner, Henry Covert, Molly Crabapple, Marguerite Dabaie, Fly, Dylan Gibson, Michael Golden, Dan Goldman, Paul Gulacy, Chris Haughton, Glenn Head, Danny Hellman, John Holmstrom, R. Kikuo Johnson, Justin Kavoussi, Jim Lawson, Sonia Leong, Benjamin Marra, Paul Maybury, Tara McPherson, Josh Neufeld, Hyeondo Park, Chari Pere, Paul Pope, James Romberger/Marguerite Van Cook, J.J. Sedelmaier, Dash Shaw, R. Sikoryak, Maria Smedstad, Steve Spatucci, Jim Steranko, Denis St. John, Ward Sutton, Neil Swaab, Mark Texeira, Shawnti Therrien, Sara Varon, and Todd Webb. These artists walk readers through their conceptual process when devising story lines with powerful graphics. This is a must-read for all graphic novel enthusiasts!

 

Synopsis:

The ways of expressing a story in art are many and varied. The use of perspective, creative page layout, continuous action flowing from one panel to the next, a collage design, the use of shadow and light, and intersecting panels are all techniques for telling a story. The avenues of expression are as varied as the artists and cartoonists who express them. Creating Comics takes you on a journey to explore those approaches to artistic expression through the eyes of 44 artists. Featured artists include Ryan Alexander-Tanner, Joseph Arthur, Gregory Benton, Ben Brown, Jeffrey Brown, Keith Carter, Michael Cavallaro, Amanda Conner, Henry Covert, Molly Crabapple, Marguerite Dabaie, Fly, Dylan Gibson, Michael Golden, Dan Goldman, Paul Gulacy, Chris Haughton, Glenn Head, Danny Hellman, John Holmstrom, R. Kikuo Johnson, Justin Kavoussi, Jim Lawson, Sonia Leong, Benjamin Marra, Paul Maybury, Tara McPherson, Josh Neufeld, Hyeondo Park, Chari Pere, Paul Pope, James Romberger/Marguerite Van Cook, J.J. Sedelmaier, Dash Shaw, R. Sikoryak, Maria Smedstad, Steve Spatucci, Jim Steranko, Denis St. John, Ward Sutton, Neil Swaa, Mark Texeira, Shawnti Therrien, Sara Varon, and Todd Webb.
