By Philip Amara

So, You Wanna Be a Comic Book Artist? is a hip how-to book that helps aspiring young comic book artists realize their dreams. Using a lively, informative style, Phil Amara shows kids how to create their own superheroes, write storylines, get their comics published, and possibly become famous. The book features precise techniques for creating a superhero or villain, advice on how and where to submit work and how to navigate the minefield of self-publishing a comic or zine, interviews with current artists, and biographies of the founders of the most popular comics. The book also profiles ten young comic book artists who are publishing their work.
