Andrea, I would recommend using Wordpress, with its effective categorization, to efficiently manage your many product types/characters.
There are many ways to skin this cat.
You can have a main blog (I'll use my own blogs as examples, k? eg. www.shermanhu.com
- and this could be the entire site).
You can also have a category for Character 1 (eg. domain.com/character1 - in my case http://www.shermanhu.com/category/personal/videos/
) - and you can set up as many categories and sub-categories as you want for all your characters.
Or you could go with the sub-domain route.
For example, the main blog being domain.com (in my case, www.wordpresstutorials.com/blog
) - and the sub-domain being charactertype.domain.com (or in my case http://videocasting.wordpresstutorials.com
Hope that makes sense. Bottom line is, you can simply setup a blog, and use categories, or split it up into multiple blogs, one as the main, the others as sub-domains. Choice is yours. Simplest way is to use Categories.
Plus you don't have to fuss with design layouts after initial setup. Simply post and publish. Voila!
