From political cartoons to offbeat graphic stories, from the Ã¢ÂÂfunniesÃ¢ÂÂ to underground comics: a contemporary look at comic art from around the world in a volume packed with vibrant visuals, deft texts, and arresting human observationFrom cartoons to graphic novels, from humor to superheroes, comics are the worldÃ¢ÂÂs most popular form of illustration. And, as in all forms of illustration, artists and designers experiment with visual ideas, image-and-word play, narrative sequencing, and stylistic flourishes through sketching. What we rarely see is the creative thinkingÃ¢ÂÂthe doodlingÃ¢ÂÂthat leads to fully formed visual ideas and stories. Comics Sketchbooks presents the private notebooks of eighty-two of the worldÃ¢ÂÂs most inventive, innovative, and successful artists alongside new talents and emerging illustrators. The artists have been selected by the worldÃ¢ÂÂs leading critic and most knowledgeable source in the field of graphic design and illustration, Steven Heller, who has had personal access to some of the most private and unseen material. Although there have been several comic-book compilations over the years, none has the visual excitement, insight, and mind-blowing creativityÃ¢ÂÂ and funÃ¢ÂÂof this one. 700 illustrations in color and black and white
