Product description


"...this book has all the secrets beginners might need." (Kirkus 2013-07-17)

"The first seven 'secrets' lay a solid groundwork for aspiring creators but what really makes Draw Out the Story exceptional, moving beyond your typical 'how-to-create-comics' guidebook, are the final three chapters that focus on creating meaningful and fun stories through exploration, imagination and "what if?" play.
(Canadian Children's Book News 2014-02-01)

"... although aimed at young adults, its solid advice will benefit aspiring cartoonists and comic makers of all ages and backgrounds." (Children's Bookwatch 2013-10-01)
