About the Author:

David Okum stays in touch with young artists through his work as a high school teacher and by running after-school comic book workshops. A freelance artist and illustrator since 1984, his work has appeared in a number of anthologies and small press comic books. He lives in Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4 Up–This book is a study in contradictions. While it is a wonderful starting point for young comic-book artists who may be frustrated by the level of sophistication in many "how-to-draw comics" books, Okum's art skills are barely up to the standards that most mainstream comics reflect. Sloppy perspective and lack of detail are the most notable differences, as is Okum's use of thick, black outlines around all of his characters. To be fair, the audience for whom this book is written will most likely not take issue with the drawing style. In fact, they may enjoy these graphically simple superheroes that are also creatively diverse. A second aspect of the book that is both refreshing and frustrating is Okum's use of computer effects in his art. He devotes two brief pages to his use of computers for shading, highlighting, and special coloring effects. For the remainder of the book, as he shows a step-by-step process for drawing characters, the final drawing is always shown colored and highlighted by computer, although he never states that he has done this or how. In general, young artists will like reading Okum's character profiles and may glean some basic information on how to create a character for a comic book, cartoon, video game, or role-playing game. But for kids who want to find out how to draw professional-looking comic books, there are many better books available.–Steev Baker, Kewaskum Public Library, WI
