Most strips have a few central characters that are almost always part of the action. These main characters may include a family, a couple, a group of work buddies, a talking horse, or the dust bunnies that live under the couch. Your main characters are the ones who are on stage the most and are the central focus of the strip. (Check out the "Creating Your Core Group" section later in this chapter for more specific hands-on direction about developing your cast.)
The possibilities for your main character group are limitless; they can live on Mars, at the bottom of the ocean, or in 10,000 BC. Or they can be the people next door — average, everyday situations are full of humorous potential.
