Book Review: The Webcomics Handbook

Almost as soon as I finished How to Make Webcomics, I delved into The Webcomics Handbook, by Brad Guigar

The author makes two distinctions about his book right away.

First, it is a compilation of notes, posts and articles gleaned from his site as a one-source guide, even for subscribers.

Second, The Webcomics Handbook is not an art manual.  You'll find no guidelines on writing or drawing.  Instead, this book covers the business and social aspects of running a webcomic.

Some of the material can found in How to Make Webcomics (printed in 2008), but it has been updated, or revised. 

The Webcomics Handbook hit the shelves in August after a highly successful Kickstarter campaign.  It's so brand new that no one has written a review on yet

Aside from a few typos/syntax errors in the first two chapters, and the last chapter; I'm happy to give The Webcomics Handbook it's first 5-star rating.  I found the book informative and about as entertaining as How to Make Webocomics.

I say "about as entertaining," only because I enjoyed the cross-talk and banter between the authors in the previous book.
