Item description for Drawing the New Adventure Cartoons: Cool Spies, Evil Guys and Action Heroes by Christopher Hart...
Overview Instructs readers in drawing action heroes in modern cartoons and comic books, using body language, motion, and character design to create effective action-style cartoons.
One of today's most popular trends in cartooning is the eye-catching teen adventure style—the type found in such major animated TV shows as Kim Possible. It's fresh and new, decidedly humorous, and even relatively easy to draw. With this fun collection, bestselling author Chris Hart gives kids a chance to create their own. These cool stories feature ordinary teens thrust into thrilling situations—teens with dual identities, who live as regular students by day and become secret spies on weekends. The art straddles the line between comic book and cartoony; offers strong male and female heroes; and showcases a colorful cast of sinister villains and entertaining sidekicks. These exuberant characters will encourage readers to replicate every drawing in the book—as will Chris's trademark friendly, personal, and thorough coverage of art principles.

Inspiring May 30, 2008
I happened to walk into the book store last week where a good size crowd of youth and adults were gathered listening to a presentation about this book. The presenter and the book caught my eye and interest so I decided to take a close look and ended up purchasing the book. After 10 days of owning the book, I have no regrets. I spent hours this past weekend having fun creating numerous adventure style cartoon characters. With easy to follow examples accompanied by the hints Harts provides, it was quite enough guidance for me do dive into a new world of cartooning. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adventure character cartooning
Most enjoyable!! May 1, 2008
This book was chock full of great drawings and instructions on how to draw in the new adventure style. It was easy to follow, easy to grasp but most importantly, enjoyable to read. I learned a lot and I also laughed a lot - tubby types. I loved the section on punching! Highly recommended.
