    A very cute instructional book with a little background story to draw readers in. Personally, I think that episodic format detracted from the actual art of making comics, but I’m sure that kids will enjoy following along. Adorable drawing style.

    Readers get an internship with Maggie and her dog Rex helping fix up and then save her grandfather’s comics library from an evil parking lot developer. To save the library Maggie has to collect a treasure map, and along the way readers learn all about how to make a comic from the art supplies comic artists use, to the planning process, to layout tips, and final production methods.

To save the library Maggie has to collect a treasure map, and along the way readers learn all about how to make a comic from the art supplies comic artists use, to the planning process, to layout tips, and final production methods. This is going to be SUPER popular with our students once our copy arrives. They already love graphic novels and drawing books, so the two of them combined is magic. The book does a splendid job of breaking down the comic making process detailed enough this could be the launching pad for the next new comic artist out there. The plot is definitely just a device to help the book flow a little easier. This is much more informational than entertainment in content, but still a great book. A definite must for school library shelves, and the perfect present for any budding artist you know. The language is simple enough for middle graders but the information is informative enough even high school and older artists could get a lot out of this. Highly recommended. No content issues. I received an ARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    A DIY Guide to drawing Comic, there is a story-line. You have been given an internship to work with Maggie building her grandpa's library of comics, and along the way, Maggie will teach you how to create comics yourself. Also, there's a villain, Dr. Carl Stephens, who has acquired the lease of the building from the bank and wants to tear it down. Good thing Maggie has a piece of a treasure map from her grandfather - maybe you can help her follow the clues and Save the comics library.

Good thing Maggie has a piece of a treasure map from her grandfather - maybe you can help her follow the clues and Save the comics library. Maggie gives step by step instructions on drawing panels, using details to show the story, how to use captions, and writing a script; you visit an art supply star to learn about all the best pencils, erasers and pens and. how to take care of them, and so much more. The kids are going to love this! The instructions are perfect - simple and precise. The story is engaging, but most of all it keeps the reader going through all the s=different steps to making a comic. It's not one you will have to worry about the kids writing in - each of the projects start with a blank piece of paper. I love that Maggie has the reader draw their own panels and talks about layout and design and everything. This will definitely be popular.

    Super detailed and uses a story line as just the background to the main plot which is learning the ins and outs of making a comic, all the way from materials needed to draw to how to scan/copy/publish the finished product. Very detailed but interesting and because it is in comic book form, it is really easy to understand and follow along with the instructions. Would be good for anyone 3rd/4th grade and up.

    This book caught my eye at a local comic book shop and I immediately picked it up because I had a few students in mind who would appreciate it. I guessed right and they love it! I love it! Very kid friendly book packed with information accompanied by adorable illustrations. I noticed that this is part of a "How to" series of graphic novels. Probably going to check out the other titles in this series as well.

    This series of comics that teaches kids how to do a wide range of activities is fantastic. This is the second I've read and its so practical and helpful. After reading it my kids instantly made their own comics that looked awesome! Really fun and creative set of books, and this one might be the best.
