A classic drawing textbook from an American comics pioneer, revised and enhanced for a new generation.

Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Milton Caniff, Al Capp, and George Herriman, this book distills the art of graphic storytelling into principles that every comic artist, writer, and filmmaker should know. 2-color art and text.
