1. Read Alan Moore’s writing for comics in groups and come prepared for a discussion on how to create narratives/stories for your comics. Perhaps you can each come up with a single-line story idea – a logline.
2. Go home and create your second and third characters and upload your concepts with studies of their expressions, gestures, motions. Some of your explorations must necessarily place two or more of your characters in a context – pay attention to perspectives, placement, depth, compositional considerations.
3. Create a second 4-frame cartoon which uses all your characters in context with a small story embedded in it.
