    1st Edition - Volume 2 - 1st printing.

    Written by Gary Martin. Art by Brent Anderson, Randy Green, Terry Dodson, Adam Warren, Mike Royer, Hilary Barta, Steve Leiahola, Al Gordon, Michael Bair, Randy Emberlin, Alex Garner, Rachel Dodson, and Karl Kesel.

    Gary Martin's The Art of Comic-Book Inking has become an industry-standard how-to guide for ink artists, but Gary hasn't been resting on his laurels. Since AoCBI's release, Gary has discussed his book with hundreds of inkers, aspiring and professional, and now he's produced an accompanying volume to fulfill inkers' most common requests.

    The Art of Comic-Book Inking II includes new sections regarding the inking of animation-styled pencils and how to problem-solve a myriad of common inking headaches, plus a handy compendium of textures and effects to give any inking assignment variety and verve. And in this volume, another small army of top professional black-fingered maestros -- Martin, Karl Kesel, Alex Garner, Al Gordon, Rachel Dodson, Steve Leialoha, Randy Emberlin, Michael Bair, and Mike Royer -- tackle the pencil art of four artists -- Terry Dodson, Brent Anderson, Adam Warren, and Randy Green -- each with vastly different styles that create diverse embellishing challenges. And each of these penciled pages is included, reproduced in non-photo blue on full-size, high-quality art board so that every aspiring inker can try their own approach and have potential professional samples ready for action!

    Softcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 64 pages, B&W.

    Cover price $14.95.
