How to draw Superheroes

Ratcreature posted an article about drawing comic superheros containing a couple of scanned chapters from a book called How to Draw Comic Superheros available from Amazon. The quality of the book looks excellent and makes me want to start sharpening pencils…. now if only I could draw.
