By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on May 24 2012
Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:05 Mins
This book was getting postponed so many times I thought it was never going to get published. So finally it's out and IDW did a great job with the publishing, as usual. It's a 224-page hardcover.

The book presents a retrospective look at the Amanda Conner's illustrious work. You can see from her student work that she has that sense of humor all along.

Every chapter starts with several photos of Amanda Conner. It's usually her in funny situations like being chased by a T-rex, or necked choked by Powergirl. To quote from her facebook description, "Amanda Conner is the first (and hottest) female artist to crack Wizard Magazine's Top Artist list." You'll see just why from the photos.

Her art is beautiful and charming. I like the occasion doses of humor either in the story or the way it was drawn. She can turn bar fights into mud wrestling with just a few panels. There are also down-to-earth humor like Supergirl bringing her dog and cat out for a fly. And her comic The Pro is just hilarious.

The incredible variety of work featured shows that she's a very versatile artist. There are even examples of character designs created for animation. More of her DC comics work will be included in another book coming up later called The DC Comics Art of Amanda Conner.

Her included candid commentary are refreshing to read. She talks about the art pieces got her into trouble - the one with Vampirella on the toilet bowl - and other drawing mistakes, and whenever possible the remedy, like including a cat-washing sequence for Powergirl's cat that was coloured wrongly.

It's an inspiring and enjoyable book. Highly recommended to fans of hers and comic art.

HASH(0xb4951ed0) out of 5 stars Good book but came dammaged twice March 6 2014
By Robert F. Frydryck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the art of Amanda Conner. She was confident enough to show her early work, so you get to see her grow. I always have been a fan of her expressions, and a great source for study.
On the down side the book came dammaged. I returned it for an exchange, and it was replaced with a copy that was dirty. Cerently not what I expected from a new book.

Come on Amanda, show some pride in your work and where it comes from!

HASH(0xb494e528) out of 5 stars Great Art and a history lesson of the Artist July 26 2012
By Nelson H. Pacheco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I originally purchased this book because I absolutely love Amanda's art. When I received it and started flipping through the pages, I was surprised as to how much of a history lesson you're getting about the artist themselves. Most art books I've ever seen contain many pieces and commissions; while this book does carry on those art works, it also contains a lot of her material from her time learning the art form of comic books. It was very insightful to me and makes me acknowledge and respect the artist more, knowing how she went from a 'Barbie' artist to the kick ass artist of many Marvel and DC characters (particularly Power Girl). For many of us up and coming artist, this is a great book to check out for a good price and get some working knowledge of what we have to go through in order to make it in this industry. Surprisingly inspiring buy.
HASH(0xb4951ea0) out of 5 stars Love Amanda? Sept. 25 2013
By Ricardo R. Arenas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you love Amanda Conner, get this. It's a pretty insightful overview of a very prolific artist and their growth over their career. You get peeks at work long out of print or sketchbook pages that Jimmy P. would be privy to only. This isn't just her work at one company either, it's Amanda at DC, Marvel and everything inbetween... which is a ton btw. Like awesome sequential art and want to see the evolution of a master at it? Get this.

HASH(0xb494e0c0) out of 5 stars A Humanizing Style May 19 2012
By Glenn R. Howes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
With the release of the third generation iPad, I've gotten back into reading comics after a 20 year absence, and by chance decided to buy JSA Confidential #1, which lead to quickly to 2,3 and 4, and looking through comiXology for everything they have by Amanda Connor which led me to Power Girl 1-12, and eventually to buying this book. What a clean style, filled with the little emotions of daily life and dialing in a pleasant balance between cartoony and realism. When Power Girl slouches down and pouts or is a little sad until someone gives her a hug, well that's hard to convey and isn't something you'd expect to see in an action packed superhero yarn, but there it is.

This book is a nice personal look at Connor's professional life with snapshots of her personal life. She complains about her time drawing Barbie, but really that's a cute bit of kitsch that would be lost to time without this collection. I've been compelled to read a fair amount of awful Barbie drivel at my daughter's request and I could have done with some of her artistry.

The testimonials from other artists get a bit tiresome, but nobody makes you read those, and it would be fun to see the young Connors in her Electra modeling getup, but all in all, a fine retrospective to an artist who's been producing great work from a young age.
