Housed within this smart and unassuming Moleskine cover lies the key to turning your tender comic book dreams into a tangible and beautiful reality.
I Draw Comics is loaded with in-depth lessons and guidelines to teach you all about perspective, commonly used character proportions, how to layout your comics, composition and even story-telling elements.
There's over 100 pages of templates to practise with; all printed in non-photo blue ink so that you can keep your drawings in check, then scan them in grey-scale and watch the lines magically disappear leaving behind your impressive creations.
Now you can turn your adorable but mildly depressing stick figures into mighty fully-fledged superheroes worthy of their own graphic novel. That's right, this means "The Marvellous Misadventures of Apathetic Slob Man and Wasted Talent Girl" may finally see the light of day!
Best of all there's a wealth of links to external resources for aspiring artists who want to further hone their talents, as well as a vast contact list of global Comic Book publishers and Comic Con dates/locations for when your master-work is complete and you want to get your name out there.

Hopefully this will make me the cool Uncle who can draw things for his niece and nephew! Alistair, Essex - 10th March 2014
It's a great little book with sections explaining various forms of perspective, drawing the human body, head and face, layout and composition and storytelling. R J Tysoe, United Kingdom - 1st March 2014
Yeah, this is worth the money. Anyone of a certain age will remember 'How to Draw the Marvel Way'. Well, think of it like that - but with a whole lot more, besides. I actually bought this for my son, to further his interest in art and drawing. Suffice to say that it's been something we do together and something that I'm learning from, as much as he is! Who knows - I might even resurrect my home-grown hero of 1980, the Ice King, and finally get round to drawing that much dreamed-of comic-strip. Great stuff for anyone with an interest in comic art.
