Any good books on writing comics?
« on: 05 October, 2019, 07:01:19 pm »
I see there are a few books about how to write comics, but are there any good ones?

Having previously read or skimmed various how-to-write books, I don't have much optimism, but I thought I'd ask. Like most things in life I expect the trick is to just get off one's fucking arse and do it, then listen to constructive or fair criticism, then get on and do it some more, rinse and repeat.

Regards,

Robin

Your namesake Robin Etherington has a Kickstarter for the print version of his web series How To Think When You Write.

Thanks, I'll take a look at all that.
