Reviews - What do customers think about Manga Mania: Shonen: Drawing Action-Style Japanese Comics (Manga Mania)?
Highly recommended Sep 11, 2008
Not only is this the first book I've seen focused solely on the Japanese shonen, but it is extremely well done. Well written and massive amount of step by step drawings, demonstrating the simple steps to create amazing characters. Starting with the basic drawing of the head with great mood expressions, moving on to the body (posture & action included) followed by the numerous individual types of personalities & characters make this book the best drawing guide/companion I've had in a long time. I highly recommend this book.
