(W) Gail Simone, Delilah Dawson, Leah Moore, Gene Ha, Various (A) Martin Simmonds, Jen Hickman, Rafael Albuquerque, Gilbert Hernandez, Various (CA) Michael Allred
What do you want to learn about? Take your pick in this anthology combining the unprecedented approach of a "how to" book with the diverse subject matter from over 100 contributors sharing their hidden talents via one-page, nine-panel comics!
Each story is part personal "how to," part "how-so." Some of these one-pagers will illuminate aspects of the comic book storytelling process like drawing likenesses, lettering, and cropping art panels. Others go beyond the comics world from the practical (catching a loose dog, changing a tire, speaking in public), to the fun (creating cheap horror makeup, skanking at a ska show, faking a guitar solo), to the peculiar (destroying the Internet, training your doppelgänger, surviving a bear attack - probably).
Includes entries from a variety of comics creatives including John Allison, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Becky Cloonan, Sanford Greene, Paul Pope, Gail Simone, Mark Buckingham, Box Brown, Gilbert Hernandez, Jill Thompson, Chynna Clugston Flores, and more.
Bonus features include a brand-new story, "How to Wash Your Hands," an introduction by Kelly Sue DeConnick and an essay about the traditional 9-panel grid by Jim Rugg.
Art Baltazar and Franco - the Eisner Award-winning creative team behind Superman of Smallville and Tiny Titans - provide their signature take on a certain apartment building (Arkham) in Gotham City and the people (mostly) who live there!
Young Bruce Wayne is drawn to the fun and excitement he sees going on at Arkham, but to Wayne Enterprises, it's just another property they own.
Bruce is determined to find out why Arkham is full of so much fun and laughter.
What exactly is going on over there?
Time to sneak over when no one is looking... even though it's like the house is laughing at him!
