This instructable is just to highlight what I go through to create a comic or cartoon - the general term I use -.
Use this as a guide to formulate your own style and maybe some of these ideas will encourage or help you create your own comic.
I am not a professional. I am a professional risk-taker. As with all art, art is subjective to personal taste and opinion. Like being a good or great comedian, you will need to pay your dues and every once in a while, get that "groan" or "snicker". Know how to take your lumps and enjoy the fame or infamy. To make one person laugh, you make the world laugh entire, not really. Throw it out there with wild abandon.
The ideas presented here may or may not appear anywhere else. Just sayin' what's on my mind and from experience. Content has not been vetted by peer review. It is an art, not a science.

Step 1: Any bright ideas?
Pick a subject or topic you like. Reading is fundamental. What would you like to talk about?
Well, Instructables is chock full of discussion and a treasure trove of useful and useless banter.
So, what is your point of view?
As an artist, or one posessing such superpowers and entrusted to making sure you use it
What thought stimulated the cerebral cortex?
Do you want to make a statement or poke fun at a situation or just poke fun at the characters - more on that later.
Satire or parody - more fun words. Can you twist the character's words? Does anyone know the difference?
Do you want to put the characters in a unique situation, put them on the green-screen of life?
