America’s lead­ing com­ic book pub­lish­er brings its super­star cre­ators and clas­sic char­ac­ters to the sec­ond in an author­i­ta­tive series of books on how to cre­ate comics. The art of Klaus Jan­son has endured in the ever-chang­ing com­ic book indus­try for over 30 years. Now this tal­ent­ed artist brings that expe­ri­ence to the most crit­i­cal step of effec­tive com­ic book sto­ry­telling: pencilling.

Cov­er­ing every­thing from anato­my to com­po­si­tion to page design, Jan­son details the meth­ods for cre­at­ing effec­tive visu­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Step by step, he ana­lyzes and demon­strates sure­fire strate­gies for com­ic book pen­cilling that are infor­ma­tive and excit­ing. Using DC’s world-famous char­ac­ters, he illus­trates the impor­tance of know­ing the fun­da­men­tals of art and how best to use them.

The DC Comics Guide to Pen­cilling Comics is packed with a wealth of test­ed tech­niques, prac­ti­cal advice, and pro­fes­sion­al secrets for the aspir­ing artist. It is a valu­able resource for com­ic book, graph­ic nov­el, and sto­ry­board artists everywhere.
