Superhero comic books usually call for two things: muscles and action. Comic book artists are constantly looking for sources for those superhuman muscles, and now Muscles in Motion will heed their cry for help. While most figure--drawing books focus on static poses, Muscles in Motion analyzes the movement of bodybuilders and athletes, showing the flow of action in step--by--step intervals. With 800 dynamic drawings taken directly from the sketchbook of award--winning artist Glenn Fabry, plus Fabry's insightful commentary on those drawings, this is the single most practical book on figure drawing for comic book artists, beginning, intermediate, and advanced.

While this book is definitely a great resource for some anatomically correct and dynamic poses, it doesn't quite show you how to draw "muscles in motion".

The book is more like a printed out sketchbook than an instructional manual.

On that note, however, it is still quite useful and informative.
