Good for beginners, but very very short and full of pretty basic information. I probably would've been better off Googling for a tutorial than wasting my money on this.

I purchased this ebook after getting a sudden urge to jump into digital comics feet first. I knew with all of the different distributors, formats and devices out there that I'd need a quick how to guide and this ebook fit the bill well.

I was particularly impressed by the screengrabs images throughout the ebook. I didn't anticipate that.

Even though it may be a small, short book it's uses are plentiful.

I originally grabbed the ePub version but for some reason it didn't go past the Kindle chapter and just abruptly ended. Luckily on Smashwords once you purchase it, you have the option of downloading any other version so I opted for the PDF. No problems there and I preferred the formatting of it over the ePub version anyway.

Very happy with my purchase and would certainly recommend it.

This book was worth much more than I paid for it, in terms of the amount of time it saved me in formatting our book for the Kindle. Using the helpful template provided by the authors, I was able to accomplish the task much quicker and with much less guesswork than if I had to try and work it out on my own.
Until Amazon releases a tool or script for automating this process, anyone considering putting a comic on the Kindle owes it to themselves to read this book first.
