How to Draw Comics

October 7, 2013 § 1 Comment

I’ve read a couple books about how to make comics, and I’ve got a couple books up on ComiXology;  but if you think I’m qualified to tell you how to draw comics, you’ve got the wrong guy.   Instead, I’d like to point you to a great, concise lesson on how to draw comics from the genius team of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

Included as a three-page gag in The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1, I wish I’d found “How Stan Lee and Steve Ditko Create Spider-Man!” years ago.  (Of course, I never would’ve been able to afford to The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 until it was listed on ComiXology).  It’s very tongue-in-cheek and fun in a juvenile way, but also a very informative behind-the-scenes.  You can see all three pages on Comic Book Collectors Club, but, as with nearly any Ditko comic, reading the actual issue is a master class in comic book language.

(If you want to read more on how to draw/make comics, my favorite is still Will Eisner’s Comics and Sequential Art).
