While contemplating the aesthetic pleasures and rigors of Andrew Loomis, I couldn't help reflecting on some of the drawing instruction books of my youth. Foremost among them, to a degree that couldn't possibly be exaggerated, was How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way by Stan Lee and John Buscema. Even into early adulthood, this book was the final word on drawing anything.
So how does it stack up in comparison to Loomis? None too shabbily, in fact.
