In 2007 Vanguard Productions published Rich's educational book, How To Draw Dynamic Comic Books. "Rich Buckler hasn’t merely written a “how-to” book;" says Stan Lee, "he’s virtually performed a heroic public service!"
At an impressive 144 pages, the book covers all aspects of how to draw a dynamic comic book, from idea to layout to pencils to inks to finished product, this book is essential for any young artist, or professional, starting out in the field of comic book production.
Rich Buckler began drawing comic books professionally in 1967 when his art appeared in Flash Gordon #10 as published by King Features. Since then he has forged a long and illustrious career and has worked on virtually every major character at both Marvel and DC, with several dozen other publishers thrown in including Skywald, Atlas, Malibu and more. He also co-created the character Deathlock for Marvel in the mid 1970s.
Rich is known for his runs on such heavyweight titles as The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, The Avengers, Teen Titans, Superman, All*Star Squadron, Batman, The Flash, Justice League Of America, Warlord, Wonder Woman and many more.
