For creative writers and artists, comics provide unique opportunities for expression - but unique challenges, too. Creating Comics brings together in one volume an authoritative guide to the creative process, with practical drawing exercises throughout and an anthology of comics demonstrating the eclectic possibilities of the form.

Creating Comic covers:

- Using images to conceive and develop characters and stories
- The complete range of possible relationships between two images
- The step-by-step structure of visual narratives
- How to approach each page like a unique canvas
- Combining words and images to create new meanings

Fully integrated with the main guide, the anthology section includes work by creators including: Lynda Barry, Alison Bechdel, Jaime Hernandez, Marjane Satrapi, Adrian Tomine, and many others.
