" Some handy hints & ideas for kids, or adults wanting the basics " said.

" I checked this book out after discovering it for research. I am working on writing and illustrating a basic-for-kids "textbook" for my comics classes that I teach - kind of a kids version of Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics". Too many "How To" books out there are teaching kids all the wrong things. I think this is a great book kind of bridging the gap between a "how-to" book and what I am doing. " said.

"This is a fantastic layout of everything you need to know about comic strips--from the 'science' of it to the drawing to the publication. As an introduction, Roche includes a few examples of types of comic strips to show the history and show good writing, popular illustrations styles and how to work a punchline. He also goes through some basic illustration techniques, giving 'the usual' for many of today's popular comic strip artists. After drawing, Roche describes some storytelling techniques, character development and discovering your style. Plenty of examples are sprinkled throughout the book, as well as practical advice. Finally, Roche explains turning your comic strip into a professional product and what to do with it once you're done. Anyone seriously interested in comic strip art will appreciate this book, and perhaps the school newspaper advisors should be made aware as well!" said.

" A thorough explanation of making comics from brainstorming concepts for plot and characters, doodling ideas for jokes and layout, explaining how to make each panel more dynamic, and even ways to share or publish your work!It's chock full of details for kid or older artists, but it's also not too detailed as to lose interest or flood the point. " said.
