Sadly I have not read through a full comic in years. Last week I picked up Paul Pope's Batman comic and I want to say it was a great read and a joy to look at his visuals. I have been aware of Paul for a long time but have never sat down and taken the time to read through one of his books. At the back of the compilation were his thoughts about costuming and he discussed texture quite often. This was one of the inspirations for the FORCE video of the week which discusses texture.
Get Paul's book.
Amazon link to the book.
