    Drawing Cutting Edge Comics (2001) by Christopher Hart. Cutting Edge? Not so much... The comic book equivalent of "extreme" sports. While comic book figures are obviously drawn "larger than life," this book takes that technique well over the top. If you're not distracted by recurring illustrations of women with proportions which don't remotely resemble reality (augmention notwithstanding), you won't mind this book. Instead, I recommend Hart's books _How to Draw Comic Book Heroes and V Drawing Cutting Edge Comics (2001) by Christopher Hart. Cutting Edge? Not so much... The comic book equivalent of "extreme" sports. While comic book figures are obviously drawn "larger than life," this book takes that technique well over the top. If you're not distracted by recurring illustrations of women with proportions which don't remotely resemble reality (augmention notwithstanding), you won't mind this book. Instead, I recommend Hart's books _How to Draw Comic Book Heroes and Villains_ for a less "extreme" treatment of his method, and _Human Anatomy Made Amazingly Easy_ for general guidelines on drawing the human figure without a live model, and checking the proportions of your subject by "internal" reference. Others have suggested _How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way_ (1978) instead, and I concur. I also highly recommend _The DC Comics Guide to Inking Comics_ by Klaus Janson (2003) as a companion volume. Make sure you look at this one in the bookstore before deciding to buy it. (27 Aug 2005)
