For all of you that enjoyed The Comic Strip Artist's Kit and wanted more information along those lines...your answer may be here.
Many other websites have already praised "Making Comics" by Scott McCloud so I am just the latest person to pile on and add my endorsement. I have been trying to find it in bookstores for a while and I was finally able to grab a copy while out of town on vacation. This is a great book! For anybody interested in visual storytelling this book is a fascinating read. It's all really good information about storytelling, design, and drawing...in fact Scott covers many topics I have covered and have planned to cover here. Actually, I feel a little funny about a lot of this stuff being written down and explained. I don't feel like I need to cover some of this stuff anymore. So if you like this blog I can only assume you would like the book. I haven't read any of Scott's other books but I hear great things about "Understanding Comics" as well.
Amazon has the book so you can get it from them. Also, here's Scott's official site for the book.
