My main goal is to stress creativity and experimentation in cartooning, and avoid the “here’s how to draw a horse” method of most books I read as a kid.
I also prefer the kids draw things from their own lives. They usually don’t need much encouragement to get going.
I don’t believe there is a wrong way to draw cartoons. Unless it involves using human blood for ink. I discourage that.

Ink is so impersonal though, don’t you think?

Are you dissing KISS and their comic?

How to draw a comic strip? Well, first learning how to draw well does help. It gives you a far greater ability to communicate your ideas.
Then consuming a lot of books, movies, TVs and doing a lot of activities helps out a whole.
Mix the previous in with your own personal values and views and lots of work and eventually you get a comic strip.
