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