Welcome to the DC Comics Art Academy, a series of art tutorials recorded at Comic-Cons featuring many of the gifted and unique artists working for DC today. In today's installment, Silencer artist and comic book legend John Romita, Jr. sketches Batman while discussing how a character's silhouette can really make him or her stand out, shares a bit about drawing action, and reveals how he discovered that Batman is the best character in comics.
If you're interested in drawing comics, it always helps to hear from people who are already doing it...and it's hard to think of anyone doing it better than Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, John Romita, Jr., Amanda Conner, Andy Kubert and Tony S. Daniel. In this exclusive Comic-Con clip, we hear from a literal roundtable of the best comic book artists in the business, who offer their thoughts on the industry while whipping up some early morning sketches. It's an absolute must watch for any comic fan or hopeful professional, and best of all, it's in 360 degrees.
