Unnatural Talent is better at the business and advice portion of trying to make a career from Webcomics. This was made more as a general advice book with some very good sections of the authors cross-examining each other's comics. Other than the good art advice in those sections, most of the information to make webcomics is now available online with a Google search. I'm sure when "How to Make Webcomics" first came out it was more useful. In 2017, I'd recommend other sources with more concrete comic building tips or taking several online classes in art and web design instead. Still worth reading as a good starting point for webcomics if you don't know where to begin or are interested in the subject.

I found How to Make Webcomics informative and entertaining, which made it enjoyable to read. Especially since the term "enjoyable" is something I normally don't associate with how-to manuals.

The book is divided into 13 chapters covering: Your webcomic, your characters, formatting, image preparation, writing, website design, branding & building, interacting with audiences, monetizing your webcomic, books (print versions of your webcomic), conventions, next steps (once your webcomic is up & running), and final thoughts (on making your webcomic work).

Past the final chapter is a section on Scott Kurtz's studio, to illustrate what a successful webcartoonist's work area looks like. The Additional Resources section contains two pages of reference material listed under the sub-categories of: Cartooning, artistic inspiration, web design and maintenance, and small business.

So reading How to Make Webcomics was fun and new to me, and therefore easy for me to give it a 5-star rating. I enjoyed the book and didn't think their business advice to be pie-in-the-sky. Not even a slice. In fact, the authors warn that if you want to get rich, then find something else to do. I've heard similar recommendations in all the writing workshops I've attended. Basically: Don't quit your day job, until the income from your writing meets, or better yet, exceeds that of your current salary.

GoodLike
This book has great information for marketing your webcomics. Although it 35% of the book is dedicated to making them, there are other books that do a MUCH better job showing how to MAKE them. I took one star away for the title. It gives a lot of good advice for anyone making a webcomic, a lot I haven't even considered. If you already have a webcomic, I would say GET THIS BOOK. If you don't, I would suggest another book so you can start your webcomic like: Making Comics by Scott McCloud, Writing and Illustrating the Graphic Novel by Daniel Cooney, Stan Lee's How to Draw Comics, Stan Lee's How to Write Comics, or Comics and Sequential Art by Will Eisner.

The book is already dated as of 2014, but the information within is golden! The technical information, much of it is solid and some of it is dated (Manga studio Pro with those wonderful perspective tools is fantastic for digital webcomics, for example).

What I found lacking was that all four creators specialize in 4 panel cartoons comparable to a newspaper cartoon, and they have little to offer someone that wants to create an ADVENTURE or SUPERHERO comic! Which is my own intent.

That said, I got this book after getting the Graphic Design Guild book, which claimed that webcomics are an economically VIABLE option for an artist. I am a cartoonist, but I'd always figured there's no money in it. Because I never made money before.

So this book is showing me what I'm doing wrong. And having read this book I'm much more secure about what to do and what to expect. Like not much money for a year - but after a year I may have an audience that will buy merchandise.

This is a book for people really willing to invest a great deal of time and effort. Cartoonists are crazy. Because no sane person would work so diligently for a year with nothing to show for it. I'm crazy enough, I have hundreds of stories and dramas I want to share. And so I will.

Will you? If so, this is an important book and you should get it!
