Process: Stan Sakai

Comic Book Resources reprints an 8-page comic by Usagi Yojimbo cartoonist Stan Sakai, showing his process for creating his long-running comic series. It was originally published as part of an interview with Sakai in Amazing Heroes #187 (1991).

I love the presentation of it, the humor, and the concrete examples of such things as the difference between inking with a nib pen versus a technical pen versus a brush. And the fact that this is old school comic book creation, without all the digital work of today’s process.
