Booklist Review

Gr. 6^-12. Teens familiar with Hart's How to Draw Comic Book Heroes and Villains (1996) or Drawing on the Funny Side of the Brain [BKL Jl 98] already know that his books are slick, attractive, and generally not for novice artists. That's particularly true of Comic Book Bad Guys, which, though giving some tips on drawing characters' features and the body in motion, is really more than anything else an idea book for young adults seriously interested in creating comic strip villains. Full-color graphics on slick paper show a host of "charismatic egomaniacs" to replicate or use as inspiration. Cartoon Dogs, Puppies & Wolves is a different matter. Accessible to a younger audience than Bad Guys, it includes step-by-step drawings for a number of "realistic" and imaginative canines (and relatives), plus some excellent pointers on translating their particular characteristics to the page. Again, the graphics are excellent--lavishly colored, numerous, and helpful. --Stephanie Zvirin
