Discover how to create great comic strips and make a career out of doing it. Packed with superb illustrations by industry professionals, this comprehensive book takes you step by step through the entire process - from initial idea to final printed page...

How to Draw & Sell Comic Strips is an essential guide for all aspiring illustrators as well as writers. It's also a good place to pick up a few tips if you are thinking of making your own movies - because knowing how to write a clear storyboard is essential when you are shooting scenes out of order.

This edition is well thought out and covers everything from the history of the comics industry, the basic elements, storytelling, drawing the story, lettering and colouring and selling your work. It even has a global list of contact addresses, telephone numbers and e-mails of companies that may be interested in your work.

Titan have also managed to do an impressive job on the presentation side. An art related book needs to look artistic, and this volume looks like a work of art in itself. The pages are well illustrated, without making everything look too cluttered, and it's relatively simple to find the information you are after. You can either dip into the book, or read it from cover to cover.

Whether you are a novice with a flair for drawing, or a fanatical illustrator in their spare time, this book will help you take that next step into making money out of your talent.
