SCARED! How to Draw Fantastic Horror Comic Characters is a response to the rise in interest in the horror genre in film, comics, and graphic novels. Readers are given a brief history of horror comics-like EC, Vertigo, and DC Comics-and the influence of legendary horror genre artist Bernie Wrightson, before all manner of horror creatures are unleashed. In-depth step-by-step instructions are provided for drawing such horror subgenres as Bring on the Monsters (werewolves, wolfman, and teenage werewolf); Love at First Bite (vampires, vampire bats, and vampire slayers); Up From the Depths (killer sharks, piranhas, and the swamp and its inhabitants); and Some Things Are Best Left Buried (the crypt, the mummy, and the ancient curse).

From Booklist:

Gr. 9-12. Scared! begins with a brief history of horror comics (mostly in the U.S.), profiles of some popular illustrators, useful tips on drawing for the genre (creating "creepy characters," for example), and advice on references and resources. The bulk of the book is dedicated to straightforward how-to, with illustrations for a gallery of ghouls showing each character broken down into basic shapes. The approach is especially suited to YA artists just developing an interest in how comics are drawn. Coloring and Lettering is an extensive look at what an artist needs to know about these subjects in order to become a professional in the comics industry--from fundamental principles of color and using computers to tools and skills needed to create a variety of styles of lettering. The book also lends insight into how and why coloring and lettering in comics have changed through the history of the industry. This is a great resource for YAs seriously interested in graphic storytelling; it will also find an appreciative audience among adults. Tina Coleman
