Adventures in Cartooning: How to Turn Your Doodles Into Comics
by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost
In Adventures in Cartooning, cartooning lessons are woven into a funny, action-filled comic book starring an impatient knight, a hungry horse, and an enthusiastic magic cartooning elf. The knight is looking for a dragon to slay. The elf is there to help him find one, imparting information about doodles, panels, word balloons, and thought balloons along the way. The panels showing the knight running across a variety of scenes (of forests, deserts, oceans, etc.) are particularly effective.
