Rave reviews for MAKE COMICS LIKE THE PROS!

makecomicslikethepros

MAKE COMICS LIKE THE PROS, the how-to book Fred Van Lente and I wrote with art by Colleen Coover, hit stores last week. And I’m just gonna say it, y’all — I’m super proud of the book and hope you buy it. We did our darnedest to write an incredibly practical, straight-forward, no-malarkey book about the actual experience of making comics that would be helpful for everyone from total beginners to fellow pros honing their craft. We learned a heck of a lot ourselves while writing the book, interviewing hugely smart people like Kelly Sue DeConnick, Klaus Janson, Gabriel Hardman, and Brian Clevinger. Here’s hoping it’ll be fun and helpful for you, too!

For more about the book, check out the podcast we did with the Comics Experience guys.

And here are a few review excerpts:

“‘Make Comics Like the Pros,’ of all the How To books I’ve reviewed in recent memory, is the best. If you can read only one, make it this one.” — Augie DeBlieck, Jr., Comic Book Resources

“If you are interested in writing comics or just would like to gain a better insight into the creative process that goes into making your favorite titles, then you should definitely check this book out. Highly recommended. A+” — Josh Begley, Fandom Post

“…truly invaluable for anyone interested in breaking into the comics industry.” — Henry Chamberlain, Comics Grinder

“‘Make Comics Like the Pros’ is the book that seems like the one most up and coming creators actually need. It’s an incredibly fair and impartial read with useful insight from pros done in a way that explains all the basics and leaves the rest up to you.” — Matthew Meylikhov, Multiversity Comics

Ask your local comics shop to hold you a copy!

Or you can buy the book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or digitally via iBooks.

Turok06-0

“Pak has introduced a set of characters in this Gold Key revamp that are absolutely mesmerizing…. Aiding and abetting this is, of course, the excellent art of Takeshi Miyazawa. Can this artist draw dinos or not? And those closeup facial expressions that have become such a signature part of this series already are handled deftly while the storytelling never suffers.” — Cosmic Book News

TUROK #6, written by yours truly with gorgeous art by Takeshi Miyazawa, hits stores today! It’s the second installment of the story of Turok’s adventure with Altani, pteranodon-riding daughter of Genghis Khan. On the fence? You can read TUROK #5, the entire first issue of the storyline, FOR FREE right here!

Read the preview for TUROK #6
