Marvel Comic: The Untold Story

Praised by critics and industry people alike (except, maybe, some of those talked about in the book itself), Sean Howe's Marvel Comics: The Untold Story is possibly the best account available out there the famous publishing house's history.

The books puts together in fine prose and chronological order a lot of facts, stories and anecdotes, (some well known in the community, some less) providing context and making it a very fun read.

You can read excerpts fom it on Google Books (also here) on Amazon and on author Sean Howe's own site.

got to be the best blog I have found so far for budding artists and I’ve got the feeling it’s going to be steady at the top of my list for a very, very long time
Curated by a group of illustrators, painters, teachers, sculptors, comic artists specialized in several areas of commercial arts, the site offers an abundance of interdisciplinary tips, reports, tutorials, experiences like no other I’ve found.

The community of authors is mostly active within the "fantasy" genre, but this is absolutely irrelevant with regard to the quality of the posts.

What Cinephilia & Beyond is to movie buffs and aspiring filmmakers, and the Stan Winston School is to horror/sci-fi /fx/make-up aficionados, Muddy Colors should be for people seriously determined to become commercial artists.
