Readers are invited into the studio spaces of some of the most popular and prolific comic artists in the world.

Curated by Joel Meadows, editor of Tripwire Magazine, the book includes chapters on such legends as Milo Manara (The Ape, Click), Mike Kaluta (The Shadow ), Walter Simonson (Thor, Fantastic Four), and more.

The first in a series focusing on artists at work in a variety of mediums and industries, Masters of Comics offers a glimpse “behind the veil,”  shining new light on the artistic process. It’s the ultimate backstage pass for comic fans, as well as a wonderful learning tool for aspiring artists wishing to learn from the greats.
