Format: Paperback
I've spent months looking over all the books on cartooning I could get my hands on. Most of them have one or two tips that come in handy.

Brad Guigar's book is an amazing overview of the field. It covers the basics efficiently and well, giving the reader enough information to get started with drawing.

Most books leave off there, but this one goes on to address the various professional opportunities for cartoonists, as well as very specific tips on getting published and even an entire chapter on creating the humor in comics.

This is also the only cartooning book that I've seen that has an up-to-date approach to technology. Excellent tips on using computers for production and for creating webcomics.

It's a very adult approach to a very fun subject, written in a casual conversational and yet authoritative style. Certainly worth picking up.

This book is worth every penny you spend on it! Brad Guigar writes in a conversational manner that is easy to follow, and yet detail oriented. The material is very well organized, with well placed illustrations to make his point.

This book is very comprehensive, and covers topics that I never thought about. Brad Guigar provides specific instructions on drawing everything from heads, hands and feet, background scenes, to caricatures and editorial cartooning. In addition, he directs to you additonal resources online for further information on such subjects as copyrighting your work, and self-publishing online.

This book is ESSENTIAL if you're looking to create your own work.

I'm not sure what Ms. Hubbard was smoking when she read Mr. Guigar's excellent book. Suffice it to say that the previous reviewers have done a MUCH better job of describing it accurately.

I own several books on cartooning, and have perused numerous others. Brad Guigar's "Everything Cartooning" is easily the most comprehensive and the most useful.

I've been cartooning and drawing comics for years and I will get away from it for long periods and often use a book to re-inspire me or show me some new ethnic to get me back into it and this book didn't do it for me. There are better for the money out there, unfortunately its all trial and error.
