How to Draw Noir Comics: The Art and Technique of Visual Storytelling

How to Draw Noir Comics: The Art and Tech­nique of Visu­al Sto­ry­telling is an instruc­tion­al book based on the cin­e­mat­ic, high con­trast noir style of acclaimed com­ic book and graph­ic nov­el illus­tra­tor, Shawn Mar­t­in­brough.

Martinbrough’s work has been pub­lished by DC Comics, Ver­ti­go and Mar­vel Comics, illus­trat­ing sto­ries rang­ing from Bat­man to the X-Men. This is his first book, released through Wat­son-Gup­till Pub­li­ca­tions and The Nielsen Com­pa­ny.

In How to Draw Noir Comics, Mar­t­in­brough shows how the expert use of the col­or black is crit­i­cal for draw­ing noir comics. He demon­strates how to set a mood, design char­ac­ters and loca­tions, stage action and enhance dra­ma, and dis­cuss­es impor­tant top­ics like page lay­out, pan­el design, and cov­er design.

How to Draw Noir Comics includes The Truce, an orig­i­nal graph­ic nov­el writ­ten and illus­trat­ed by Mar­t­in­brough which incor­po­rates the many lessons addressed through­out the book, and has an intro­duc­tion by crit­i­cal­ly-acclaimed nov­el­ist Greg Ruc­ka, author of the graph­ic nov­el White­out, cur­rent­ly in pro­duc­tion as a major motion pic­ture.
