    I'm looking for a book that teaches uses of overarching structure or techniques.

    Stan Lee's How to Write Comics is an excellent buy. Check it out on Amazon, to see if that's what you're after. :)

    I'm assuming it's structure for movies only, if that's the case then I'm sticking with Robert Mckee 'Story'. I'm looking for something that can teach structure for ongoing series that doesn't fall flat by the 10th issue. Like how does The Walking Dead run for over 10 years and keep readers wanting more.
