DVD Review: How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way

How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way 1977

Although this instructional DVD was produced in 1977, it is very entertaining and educational. The set is simple and you can tell from the glasses and clothing Stan Lee and John Buscema are wearing that is was done some time ago, the information is not really dated.

I particularly like the tips on ratios and foreshortening they give you. You can stop the DVD and sketch along with them. Any artist interested in cartooning might benefit from watching this video. It is another one of my finds from Netflix.

Following is the review from Netflix:

Renowned Marvel Comics illustrators Stan Lee (creator of Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk) and John Buscema (creator of Conan the Barbarian and the Silver Surfer) reveal the secrets of producing comics in the signature Marvel style. Their lessons focus on fundamentals such as drawing panels and dramatic action, using examples from such series as “The Fantastic Four,” “The Avengers” and “Spider-Man.”
