What do you want to learn about? Take your pick in this anthology combining the unprecedented approach of a "how to" book with the diverse subject matter from over 100 contributors sharing their hidden talents via one-page, nine-panel comics!

Includes entries from a variety of comics talent including Michael Allred, Kelly Sue Deconnick, Becky Cloonan, Sanford Greene, Paul Pope, Gail Simone, Gene Ha, Box Brown, Gilbert Hernandez, Leah Moore, Chynna Clugston Flores, and more.

Each story is part personal "how to," part "how-so." Learn new skills or hone the ones you've got. Some of these one-pagers will illuminate aspects of the comic book storytelling process like drawing likenesses, lettering, and cropping art panels. Others go beyond the comics world from the practical (catching a loose dog, changing a tire, speaking in public), to the fun (creating cheap horror makeup, skanking at a ska show, faking a guitar solo), to the peculiar (destroying the Internet, training your doppelganger, surviving a bear attack--probably).

All from a diverse mix of creators from South Africa, South America, North America, England, India, and other parts of the world sharing their favorite recipes, traditions, talents, and skills! Learn about a myriad array of subjects from your favorite creators in this fun, educational anthology.
