Presenting an excerpt from Mastering Comics, a new course of material to accompany First Second Books’s first 2008 comics textbook, Drawing Words & Writing Pictures. School of Visual Arts cartooning professors Matt Madden and Jessica Abel bring their expertise to bear on the “second semester” of a course of study for the budding cartoonist.

Covering advanced topics such as story composition, coloring, and file formatting, Mastering Comics, out May 8th, is a vital companion to the introductory content of the first volume.

Problem for me is that none of the pages enlarged enough to make out the text. And with the last page, the "enlarged pic" was smaller than the original. tut Tut
