Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These are two of the most comprehensive and entertaining cartooning books available. Duane Barnhart, a highly successful teacher, syndicated cartoonist, and illustrator, provides interesting bits on cartoon history and step-by-step lessons on human characters, animals, and imaginary beings. The book attempts to engage the student by having cartoon characters do the teaching. This is alternately whimsical and tedious. Hall's book manages to pack far more material in a cleaner format, while still making the reader laugh on every page. Thus, one learns that of 6000 submissions to King Features Syndicate, only three are accepted, and one learns how to make snacks while preparing one of those submissions. Two fine books, but Hall has the edge.

    Awesome!

    I have been looking for a book on cartooning for a while now, but couldn't find anything close to what I wanted. So it seemed like a gift from above when this book popped out. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

    The Best Book for Beginers

    I have bought this book from WHSmith, UK. I found this is the best book ever available for any person who wants to be a cartoonist. The Step by step guide to make cartoons is excellent. I bet any person can kick off after reading this book. Its worth buying this book if you are a beginer.
