Comic Storytelling Part 1 with Ron Tiner

22 Panels 2014 LogoWhat makes good comic book art? It’s not just a matter of accurate drawing. Every story makes unique demands on a narrative artist, and his understanding of what makes a good story – as opposed to a dull sequence of events – is what makes the difference between a comic book that you simply read and forget, and one that sets your imagination alight, and you go back to time and again.
