I Draw Comics Sketchbook & Reference Guide review

It is well-known among my friends, family and peers that I have a Kickstarter addiction that I struggle with (some days are better than others).   One of the (many) fruits of my addiction yielded one of the most innovative “how to draw” books I’ve come across in a long time. Matt Marrocco, with the help of some amazing collaborators created the I Draw Comics Sketchbook & Reference Guide.

Destiny of the Dragon: The Daughters of Merlin #2

Separated from Breeta in the time stream, Mina slams to Earth in a strange land with many unbelievable machines and sights. She has landed in modern times. Will her wizardry prove helpful in such a chaotic time of highways and the internet? One can only hope!

The Good
This second issue wastes no time jumping right back into the action in Daughters of Merlin 2.  Even though it isn’t action based, we get some interesting use of spells which I was happy to see again.  Interaction between characters was done pretty accurate to how it would likely be, especially given the situation they’re in.

The Bad
So far things are all consistently being done well, and haven’t had any negative components to speak of.

The Summary
Things really open up in this part of the story where magic meets mode...
