Adventures in Cartooning: Characters in Action: 09/24/13
Adventures in Cartooning: Characters in Action by James Sturm is the third of the comic books that teach children how to make comic books through example. The king is missing and the castle's been invaded by Otto Airs, who is making a movie.
Using the casting call as the excuse to introduce character types, Characters in Action goes through the basics of designing characters and building bodies from basic shapes.
There's also a story involving the princess-knight, her dragon, and the elf. None of the follow up books match the fun and positive message of the original but this one is a close second.
I think readers who are ready to expand their skills after working through the original will enjoy trying their hands at more complex character design.
