Review “David Chiu truly makes drawing comics fun in this book: he manages to share his expertise succinctly while not bogging down the reader with too many lengthy explanations. I would recommend this book to children of any age interested in drawing their own graphic novel, and any teacher to have to help prepare for teaching comics in the classroom.” ―David Shear, Art Teacher, Long Island, NY “David Wayne Chiu’s Create Your Own Graphic Novel is a great starter workbook for the young cartoonist. Whereas many how-to-draw-comics books get bogged down in drawing technique, Chiu’s focus is on the more integral aspects of comics―storytelling and theory! He succeeds in presenting these topics so as to make them comprehensible to the young reader, in a sequence of step-by-step interactive lessons. This is a great introductory volume to prepare the young cartoonist for the more advanced Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud.” ―Jason Little, Cartooning Coordinator, School of Visual Arts “If you're curious about comics as a creative means to tell your story, Create Your Own Graphic Novel: A Guide for Kids is an absolute must-get! It's an essential guide that walks the reader through all the basics in a clever and engaging way. David Wayne Chiu utilizes his deft skill, combining words and pictures to give you the understanding of how you, too, can create your own story using words and pictures. He conveys the joy and relative ease of the task while covering a lot of ground. For those of you looking to create your own graphic novel, there is no better way to start than with this guide. Highly recommended!” ―Fletcher Chu-Fong About the Author DAVID WAYNE CHIU provides an array of sequential art and illustration services.
