This book really blew me away. I loved most of the artists' work in it. It was really cool to see all their different styles. I have am a fan of many new artists because of this book. It also is also a good reference for me when I draw. I also thoroughly enjoyed the artists' interviews, I learned the approaches to art and their fav manga adn manga suggestions (and they was some comedic responses to questions here and there).But I did have a few problems with it, resulting in the loss of one star: - Each artist did a tutorial and on the tutorials involving digital coloring, digital inking, etc. it assumed I knew all the technology already when I didn't. So I skipped those parts. -The foreword from Adam Warren seemed to drag on forever (plus the second commentary righ after from Tania Del Rio). - AND NOT ENOUGH FEATURED ARTISTS HAHA I just wish their were more.. it just seemed kinda short to me.
