Author Publishes Three Pose File Books in Three Years
PARAMUS, NJ – The third book in the “Comic Artist’s Photo Reference” trilogy by photographer Buddy Scalera will appear in national book chains and comic stores nationwide on Halloween.
The 144-page “Comic Artist’s Photo Reference: Men & Boys” features 1,000+ photos of actors in superhero poses, shot specifically for the needs of illustrators. The book is part of Scalera’s three-part series which started with “Comic Artist’s Photo Reference: People & Poses” (May, 2006) and then “Comic Artist’s Photo Reference: Women & Girls” (May 2008).
Each of the books in the series includes in-depth art lessons by respected comic book professionals, including David Hahn (Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four), Rafael Kayanan (Conan, Star Wars, Firestorm, Batman), Mike Lilly (Vampirella, Nightwing), Mark Smylie (Artesia), and Rodolfo Migliari (Green Lantern, Elektra, Kiss).

Males of different ages and body types are featured in superheroic poses to help professional and aspiring artists draw accurate anatomy in their comic books, storyboards, videogames, manga, and more.
The 144-page softcover book and CD-ROM package retails for $24.95 in Barnes & Nobles, Borders, (ISBN-978-1-60061-004-2), comic stores, Bud Plant Comic Art, and Amazon.
“Artist’s can use these reference books to draw better foreshortening, shadows, clothes, and action poses,” explains author Scalera. “Many professional artists utilize photo reference to create superhero comics.”
Scalera is the creator of another photo reference resource, a three-volume CD-ROM collection of pictures titled “Visual Reference for Comic Artists” Vol. 1-3. He is also a superhero comic book writer with credits writing for Marvel Comics including Deadpool, Agent X, and X-Men Millennial Visions.
