    I have to say, I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. I expected to just flip through and admire the art. However, I found the autobiographical piece enthralling as well. Starlin has been in the industry for 40 years and had some interesting stories. Interspersed were little gems like what it was like to work on the Punisher. Marvel had a few odd writing rules when it came to the Punisher. I was told right off, "If the Punisher appears in a panel with another character. other than his I have to say, I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would.

Interspersed were little gems like what it was like to work on the Punisher. Marvel had a few odd writing rules when it came to the Punisher. I was told right off, "If the Punisher appears in a panel with another character. other than his assistant, that person should be killed within the next few pages by either the Punisher or someone else. If the Punisher appears with any object, it should be destroyed in an explosion as soon as possible." Starlin is known mostly for working on Marvel's cosmic characters. He created Thanos and Drax, killed off Captain Marvel, is synonymous with Adam Warlock, and wrote the Infinity Gauntlet story Avengers: Infinity War is based on.. In addition, he killed off Robin after fans famously determined Jason Todd's fate. Also included in the book is a lot of his creator owned scifi and fantasy work.

    A really beautiful book in between the biography and the illustrations book, because the guy is an illustrator in the comic world (mostly super-hero, for Marvel, and science-fiction). I loved to seen those amazing art pieces, Jim Starlin have some talents, and I really enjoy discover comic (often old one) that I didn't really knew about. For the comic/illustrations fans.

    The Art of Jim Starlin is a little bit history, a little bit biography, and a lot of impressive visuals. Fans of comics and graphic novels will enjoy this book. Along the way in my reading, I found several images that brought back nostalgic stories from years ago. A well-done, polished text.

    I assume this has been revised and tweaked since coming out as an ultra-collectible in 2011. It's a very slight read, and you need to be a connoisseur of comic cover art to get a lot out of the selection of artworks. That said, there are also some wonderful pages and imagery across the whole visual spread represented here, ranging as it does four decades, from three-colour to fully digital. The script by Starlin is chattily autobiographical, and covers all his ups and many downs in the industry. I assume this has been revised and tweaked since coming out as an ultra-collectible in 2011.

He himself admits to never reading art books, and some will love the fact this is incredibly pictorial, but others may want more grit and narrative nous about his career. On the whole, however, what I could review of the book was very enjoyable.

    'The Art of Jim Starlin: A Life in Words and Pictures' by Jim Starlin with Joe Pruett and Mike Marts is an overview of art interspersed with the story of a fantastic talent from 35+ years in comics. Jim Starlin knew he wanted to be a cartoonist from an early age. He practiced his art while he was in the Navy. Eventually he was discovered by Marvel and his career took off. He had a way of revamping characters in titles that were failing like Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock.

He had a way of revamping characters in titles that were failing like Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock. Along the way, he created the villain Thanos. He wrote the Infinity Gauntlet that the current series of Avengers movies is based on. He had his own comics and books. There were clashes with management and editors and corporations. Mr. Starlin apologizes up front about being surly about his experiences, but I didn't feel he was at all. If anything, his stories and the easy way talks about his life feels like sitting down for a drink with an old friend. I've been a fan of his work for years and have read many of the stories he has written and illustrated. This was really a lot of fun to read. I received a review copy of this ebook from Aftershock Comics, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.

    This is an incredible and honest autobiography by Jim Starlin, accompanied with his beautiful art. His business experiences as a freelance writer and artist are educational about how the comic book business used to be from the 70’s, leading up to modern changes. Each period has its strengths and weaknesses, and Jim breaks down the frustrations he had early in his career as well as recently, along with the perks that have come from his creations, movie proposals, etc. Great book.

    I have quite a few art books, but this is the first one that I’ve actually read cover-to-cover. Jim Starlin does a great job writing about his own creations, along with providing thoughtful reflections on the fickle nature of the comic book biz. The book is also, of course, filled with Jim’s gorgeous artwork. If you like Starlin’s work, you NEED to add this beautiful volume to your library.

    Very enjoyable. I wish it had about twice as much text. A lot of the battles with Marvel and DC are summarized in paragraph. It's too bad the author's experience with the new Avengers movie didn't make it in.
