2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 12 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:17 Mins
Everything in the book is explained simply and clearly with lots of personal examples. He tries to address the many approaches to creating noir comics and does them well. For example when explaining the tools he used, he would talk on the type of ink to buy (fade and erase-proof), how to maintain them and choosing the right tools for the job.

The main bulk of the book deals with comic creation specific to noir style. He explains the ways to create mood, lighting and texture to aid the story. And also touches the comic creation part like paneling, pacing, creating drama, choosing backgrounds, using references and more. All the examples included are well caption to emphasis the techniques reviewed.

At the end of the book is a 16-page noir style graphic novel to show readers the finished product.

This book is a great introduction to noir comics and serves as a great reference.

You can view more of Shawn Martinbrough's work at Verge Entertainment, which is a company he founded with his partners.

This is a great book, I was eyeing it up in chapters and ended saving a whole bunch of money by using amazon. The book is an amazing guide into the field of black and white art. It also gives you many ideas and different style options which you could use for your own pieces. In all honesty I recommend this to everybody who has interest in creating artwork
