But when the decision comes to Gauge, the youngest Cybertronian, will she spare the planet? And far away from Cybertron, Ultra Magnus has his own problems-namely, a group of sinister mercenaries on the hunt for Cybertronian artifacts.

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 creatives including John Allison, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Becky Cloonan, Sanford Greene, Paul Pope, Gail Simone, Mark Buckingham, Box Brown, Gilbert Hernandez, Jill Thompson, Chynna Clugston Flores, and more.

Each story is part personal "how to," part "how-so." 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 doppelgänger, surviving a bear attack–probably).

All-star creators from South Africa, South America, North America, England, India, and other parts of the world share their favorite recipes, traditions, and talents in this fun, educational anthology. Learn new skills or hone the ones you've got.

Bonus features include a brand-new story, "How to Wash Your Hands," an introduction by Kelly Sue DeConnick and an essay about the traditional 9-panel grid by Jim Rugg.

After 46 years, 2 months, and 21 days writing and drawing Dick Tracy Chester Gould retired at the age of 77. In these historic final strips, Gould pits his dynamic detective against the latest in a long line of grotesque villains. Tracy, meanwhile, takes his law and order campaign to television, while his past catches up to him when a criminal he helped convict twenty years ago puts the detective on his "to kill" list. To round out this volume, the squad room is kept busy with two members of B.O. Plenty's extended family who are anything but law-abiding-Perfume Plenty and her larcenous cousin Dade. All this and more in the ultimate volume of Chester Gould's Dick Tracy, collecting strips from March 15, 1976 to December 25, 1977.

The series is ripe to introduce to crime prose readers who haven't previously ventured into comics.
