Going back nearly nine years, we have the 23rd edition of ‘Draw!’ where there is some focus on comicbook artist Al Williamson (1931-2010) and the people who worked with him. He was the penciller on Marvel’s first Star Wars’ comicbook series amongst other comics, don’t forget. In his later years, Williamson turned inker after an […]

Draw! #22 Spring 2012 (magazine review).

Editor Mike Manley says this issue was the best up to this point. Seeing Frank Miller on the cover should guarantee that, although the issue starts off with an interview with inker Scott Williams who discusses his trade and the deterioration in equipment. Rather interestingly, his selection of Pentel Presto! Correction Pens for white correction […]

Draw! #18 Fall 2009 (magazine review).

Before you ask why have I upped the number of early ‘Draw!’ issues I’m reviewing, its mainly because buying as a bundle means I have more of them than the other magazines I bought at the same time. Economical cheaper, but a lot to read. The first interview editor Mike Manley this time is with […]

As you should spot from the cover of Draw! # 16, the main comicbook artist interviewed is Howard Chaykin, giving a bit of his history, his apprenticeship with four significant key artists and showing how he draws. His layouts are literally stick figures and he confessed that he relies on the inking stage to sort […]

Draw! #15 Spring 2008 (magazine review).

Amongst my Draw! bundle, # 15’s cover title is ‘Back To School Issue’ seemed an unusual title. Actually, it’s more like a university education but that would make for a longer title. As editor Mike Manley points out, comics are respectable and now you can even get art degrees in it in the USA. Although […]

Draw! #28 Spring 2014 (magazine review).

By far the biggest section of Draw! # 28 back in 2014 is an interview with Farel Dalrymple. Looking at his art, there’s an obvious European influence and certainly from Moebius in his backgrounds. He was illustrating ‘The Wrenchies’ at the time of the interview so there is a lot of emphasis on that. Something […]
