About the Author:

John M. Byrne is a top cartoonist and teacher who has appeared on Nickelodeon and the BBC. His books include Learn to Draw Cartoons, Learn to Draw Comics, and Drawing Cartoons That Sell.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School—This well-organized how-to is filled with practical information. Byrne touches on all aspects of cartooning—history, drawing exercises, types of tools and materials, basic drawing skills, lettering, paneling, storytelling, humor, using computers, marketing, and much more. Various styles are included, with special chapters devoted to caricatures and manga. The book itself is attractive and has a good balance of text and color illustrations, which provide plenty of examples. The writing is clear and concise. "Must Know" and "Want to Know More" asides are found throughout, offering hints and tips as well as useful Web site addresses to plumb for more on particular topics. A solid title with useful information for both beginners and more advanced artists.—Lara McAllister, Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia
