This is a fantastic collection of comic art by Dez Skinn, with full-page color layouts, spanning the entire artistic process – from character design to covers. Featuring work by stalwarts such as Ben Templesmith, Sean Phillips and Alex Ross, the collection also includes lesser-known artists, all with unique styles.

Each piece is accompanied by commentary from Skinn as well as the artists, plus their contact information. The book is nicely organized according to genre, from noir to fantasy to comedy to “real world.” Mark Millar provides an introduction.
