The Comic Book Guide for the Artist-Writer-Letterer by Nick Cuti

I go to Diversions of the Groovy Kind allot- so should you. Why? Because you discover obscure digital finds like the one below the fold in the handy pdf viewer.  The Comic Book Guide for the Artist-Writer-Letterer, a pamphlet comic format book on making comics published by Charlton Comics in 1974 was for kids of the early 70’s the only way to get down with how pros made comic art. Predating How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way by 4 years, TCBCFTAWL concisely made clear all the basic techniques for the amateur artist. Thanks to Cartoon Snap! Blog for making the PDF download. Read on your ipad or desktop or print it out and learn.
