    One thought on “The DC Comics Guide to Coloring and Lettering Comics”

    1. I scratched my head through a half dozen books about color written by fine artists, then found this one from a comic book artist and everything became immediately clear. Just needed to find someone who spoke my language.

    2. Being a graphic designer, it reiterated some stuff I learned in college, but it also taught me some new things about scanning. Great read!!

    3. I am a colorist who is looking to expand into the other side of comic book creation and picked up DC Comics Guide To Colioring and Lettering for the sole purpose of bettering my skills as a Letterer. What happened while reading this book is that I learned some valuable tips and tricks for coloring as well with regards to printing and outputting files, as well as some practical coloring techniques that I had never even thought of. Onto the Lettering section of the book, I learned more than I coul [...]

    4. A surprisingly unique approach to these ideas; detailed and pulled right out of current creator workflows.

    5. I think this book is indispensable, and it's definitely one to buy rather than borrow. I've read it cover to cover a few times, and I still learn something new from it each time (as my skill slowly improves); I also keep it close to hand so that I can refer to specific sections.Chapter 5 is worth the purchase price by itself; even though the book is 11 years old, and there have been several new software releases since then, I still had to jump through the hoops before the computer colours would [...]

    6. Very informative, very detailed guide to lettering and coloring. It is in-depth, easy to understand, and very clear. As I have worked an independent comic book company in the past, I found some of it to be very basic. This is most likely a good thing, meaning it starts from the ground up for beginners.Some of it I found rather subjective (like the section on "how to properly render a female face") as that always depends on the style of the artist. I wish they hadn't bothered with the page on "an [...]

    7. As an amateur comics writer and avid comics reader, who has merely dabbled in image manipulation software enough to make broad and clunky requests of my illustrator, I do not feel completely qualified to judge this book on its methods. I did find it very readable, very accessible, and very clear. I feel confident having read it that I would know immediately what the first steps toward colouring or lettering my own book would be should I choose to do it. That said, it was also very technical, and [...]

    8. For anyone interested in the art of Coloring or Lettering for comics, this book would have to be considered the definitive guide. Broken into two sections, each gives a copious amount of information relevant to the topic at hand. Unfortunately, since both topics share one book, the brevity of some subjects is sometimes disappointing. Todd Klein's instruction on lettering is quite interesting, though could easily be perceived as boring to those not interested in it. I would have liked to have see [...]

    9. Cons:If you have a graphic design background like I have, then you will probably know 90% of what was covered in this book.Pros: The rest of the info contained in this book is so rare and hard to come by that if you don't already work in the comic book field it is worth the money picking this book up because it will definitely help you reach the next level.

    10. Each and every book in this series is jam-packed with useful information for anyone who wants to work on comics. I've gone through three of them so far. Moving onto Pencilling Comics after this.

    11. The Best color theory book I've ever read! Its so simple and practical and applied. The lettering part is a waste of time.
