Bryan Hitch's Ultimate Comics Studio Book Review


About the Book: The world's top comic artist Bryan Hitch explores his inspirations, approaches and techniques through a stunning collection of his finest pieces from Marvel, as well as brand new pieces commissioned especially for this book. Packed with information, practical tips on panel composition, storytelling, tools and materials, inspiration and references, how to break into the industry and much more, this is the long awaited guide and a must-have for Bryan Hitch fans all over the world. Including a foreword by writer, director and producer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon, this is a veritable visual feast of dynamic, impactful art for comic fans all over the world.


Our Take: I'm always interested in art "instructional" books, as an artist myself.  Its always nice to get some tips from the pros and some new insight. I do enjoy Hitch's artwork and this is a great showcase for his work.  Its primarily just that, though, a showcase.  There isn't much art instruction or tips to be found.  There is a cool look at this pencil to ink artwork and some shots of his studio, which I always enjoy.  Thats not to say there is nothing to be learned, I did find a few good tips and some nics pencils to work off of.  Overall, its a nice book, especially if you're a fan of Hitch's comic book art.
