The truth is that what Fred perry offers in both books is a system for constructing characters (vol 1) and then seeing that system at work (vol 2).
Table of contents -
~Lesson 0: Rendering Techniques
~Lesson 1: Mash-up Fighters
~Lesson 2: Action Scenes
~Lesson 3: Action Sequences
Lesson 0 appears in both books and just talks about the tools you'd use in order to implement the system and is just repeated from the first book. Lesson 1 builds a bit upon the first book's lessons so you can think of it as a refresher course. Lesson 2 shows us how Perry's constructed characters can be put into action. Moving, fighting, getting hit, etc. You see most of the moves depicted in that lesson rendered from beginning to end (usually in about 4-6 pages per move, although he does spend time talking about how action needs to flow among other topics). Lesson 3 involves Perry taking 3 action comic pages and working them out from the basic sketch to the completed pages.
These books feature a good mix of males and females so it isn't too one sided. You should also keep in mind that everything is greyscale and when I say "completed" I mean "completed" as in "It's Inked". You'll need another book to teach your coloring (might I suggest the Brian and Kristy Miller books?).
