How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way

How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way by Stan Lee and John Buscema describes the book this way:

Stan Lee, the Mighty Man from Marvel, and John Buscema, active and adventuresome artist behind the Silver Surfer, Conan the Barbarian, the Mighty Thor and Spider-Man, have collaborated on this comics compendium: an encyclopedia of information for creating your own superhero comic strips. Using artwork from Marvel comics as primary examples, Buscema graphically illustrates the hitherto mysterious methods of comic art. Stan Lee's pithy prose gives able assistance and advice to the apprentice artist. Bursting with Buscema's magnificent illustrations and Lee's laudable word-magic, How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way belongs in the library of every kid who has ever wanted to illustrate his or her own comic strip.


Review by John Erickson, November 2007:

I recieved this book as a birthday present when I turned 13 (give or take a year) and to this day it's one of the best presents I've ever received, probably because I was just the right age and level of artistic maturity to get the most out of it. How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way is not particularly in depth, but it covers all the basics of comic style drawing and composition and is an excellent resource for young artists maturing in their dedication and technique.
