My new book “Comic Artist’s Photo Reference: Women & Girls” is now available in stores.
If you’re planning to be at the Wizard World Philadelphia convention this weekend, I will be there with copies of the book on Saturday. I’ll be sitting at the After Hours Press booth.
Thanks for your support of my first book and my CD-ROMs. Without you, I couldn’t have made this latest book, which I think is my best effort to date.
Sincerely, thank you.
Below is a press release that’s started to pop up on some of the comic book news sites.

Original Visual Reference CD-ROMs Debuted in Philly in 2002!
PARAMUS, NJ – The second book in Buddy Scalera’s photo reference series debuts at the Wizard World Philadelphia convention, six years after the first photo reference CD-ROMs debuted at the very same convention in 2002.

The new book features 1000+ photos of female actors in superheroic action poses, inspiring artists with accurate anatomy reference. Contributors include Terry Moore, Jamal Igle, Josh Howard, and JG Jones, who painted the stunning female barbarian cover.
Fans who visit the After Hours Press booth in Philadelphia on Saturday May 31 will be able to meet author Buddy Scalera and cover model and actress Pamela Paige.
“Wizard’s Philadelphia convention is the perfect place to debut the new book, since that’s where I launched the very first demo of the photo reference CD-ROMs,” says Scalera. “Fans and artists in Philly have always been very supportive of my photo reference products.”
All of Scalera’s photo reference products will be available at the After Hours Press booth, including “Visual Reference for Comic Artist’s” Vol. 1-3 and “Comic Artist’s Photo Reference: People & Poses.” The books are available on June 2, 2008 at Barnes & Nobles, Borders, Amazon.com, Bud Plant Comic Art, and many fine comic book stores.
