Four Color Process

I’ve been reading comic books off and on since I was little. There was a time when I thought I’d like to pursue a career in drawing comics. I enjoy the medium immensely for both its art and storytelling explorations. The art in particular has always held a place in my heart, which is why when I found John Hilgart’s Four Color Process blog I lost most of a morning pouring through the images.

I appreciate the technology many of us use to read comics now, but seeing the dots and registration (or lack thereof) has a quiet human charm, not unlike seeing the texture of an artist’s brush strokes in a beloved painting.

Also from Hilgart and not to be missed: SUPERTYPE!, the lettering of comic book mastheads, and Comic Book Cartography, maps, diagrams, and cutaways.
