Freddie E. Williams II, THE DC COMICS GUIDE TO DIGITALLY DRAWING COMICS artist: Mr. Media Radio Interview

I am old enough to remember what a sensation Stan Lee and John Buscema caused back in 1978 when the book, How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, was published.

That book promised to pull back the curtain and teach would-be comic book artists how the House of Ideas did things and how you could, too.

But that was then—this is now. In the digital age, knowing how to hold a pencil is so 1999. If you want to make it in comics today, you need a lot more technical skills and information. And that, no doubt, is why Freddie E. Williams II is going to do very well with his timely new instructional book, The DC Comics Guide to Digitally Drawing Comics.

Williams is already on a bit of a roll, having worked on the DC miniseries Countdown, as well as Robin, The Flash and others. You can check out his work at his own website,
