I grabbed “Draw Comics Like a Pro” during a visit to my local library. Mr. Bigley’s years of comic book drawing experience are on display in this great albeit short book. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on proportions and dynamic poses.
The book seems to be aimed at a younger reader because some of the chapters are craft projects instead of drawing exercises.
I added it to my collection because I found a great deal on Amazon. I’d recommend a library check-out before you buy to see if the information is already contained in a book you already own.
According to lambiek.net:
Albert Bigley studied at the Ringling School of Art. He began his career in the late 1980s by working on the First Publishing titles ‘The Badger’ and ‘Sable’. He then did artwork for DC’s ‘The Fly’ and ‘Race Warrior’ and Marvel’s ‘Iron Man’, ‘West Coast Avengers’, ‘Scarlet Witch’ and ‘Darkhold’ throughout the early 1990s. For Archie Comics, he drew ‘Archie and Friends’ and ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’, and for Image, he cooperated on ‘Geminar’. He has illustrated stories for Disney’s ‘A Bug’s Life’, ‘Monsters Inc.’ and ‘Lilo & Stitch’ since 2002. He has also illustrated coloring books, story books and merchandise.
