The Main Character

     Cartoonist Brian McLachlan, in his upcoming Draw Out the Story: Ten Secrets to Creating Your Own Comics, offers a story tip to his young readership.  Under the heading "Who's the main character?" he discusses a story involving an underdog sports team.  "Which team member is the main character?" he asks.  "The one who has the most at stake!"
     A simple observation that underpins the entire history of storytelling.
