B-McKinley has a spectacular aura aboutB-McKinley has a spectacular aura aboutB-McKinley has a spectacular aura about

Jason Brubaker's Unnatural Talent which is a book form version of his ReMIND blog.

Dirk Manning's Write or Wrong which is again the collected in print version of the Write or Wrong columns at Newsarama.

Those both look at creating comics as a whole with a focus on self-publishing.

Also focused on self-publishing is How to Self Publish Comics: Not Just Create Them by Josh Blaylock. I wish there had been more like these when starting out. Back then it was all about drawing or writing, but there is so much more to creating than those two skills.

For Must Read, I'd start with Understanding Comics and Making Comics by Scott McCloud.

For artists specifically Perspective for Comic Book Artists is also required reading.
