Imagine sitting down with pencil and paper to create a colorful, captivating graphic novel that might one day become a box-office hit, like Watchman or The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Whether age six or 96, anyone can
create a graphic novel and get a piece of the $395 + million graphic novel market with help from the new book You Can Do a Graphic Novel.
Veteran graphic novelist and graphic novel instructor Barbara Slate guides readers through the same process she learned in her early days working for Marvel and DC Comics-a process she has simplified for the classes she teaches and for the syndicated column she writes.
The book teaches readers how to:
- Uncover the components of a good graphic novel
- Find a drawing style regardless of artistic ability
- Navigate the creative process and create memorable characters
- Develop the plot and subplots and come up with compelling dialogues
- Understand the ins and outs of graphic-novel layout
- Traverse the graphic-novel business
