The DC Comics Guide to Inking Comics

For the aspiring artist who wants to become an expert comic book inker, this is the definitive, one-stop resource. America's leading comic book publisher brings its superstar creators and classic characters to the third volume of its authoritative series on how to create comics.

Legendary comic book penciler and inker, Klaus Janson, uses world-famous DC characters such as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman to demonstrate an array of inking techniques. He covers such essential topics as using textures, varying line weights, creating the illusion of three-dimensionality, and working with light and dark. Janson's lively, step-by-step instructions are informative, exciting, and clear. In addition, every technique shown in this guide conforms to actual industry standards.

This book includes an introduction by Frank Miller, one of the most influential comics creators of his generation. Early work at DC Comics and Marvel led to the development of his distinctive film noir style on such titles as Daredevil and Wolverine and later, Sin City.

The book features 100 black and white illustrations throughout.
