Publisher Comments:

Tools for creating the next great graphic novel!

What do the movies Men in Black, Road to Perdition, Ghost World, and X-Men all have in common? Each started out as a graphic novel — one of the fastest growing segments of the book publishing industry. Now, here is the first book to provide a comprehensive and detailed look at the process involved in creating a successful graphic novel.

Synopsis:

You're no idiot, of course. You know that the graphic novel is the hot medium for all sorts of stories — using pictures and words to portray everything from personal tales to action epics. It's an art form as limitless as your imagination — so where do you begin? The Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Graphic Novel is for you — whether you want to write, draw, or do it all yourself. It shows you exactly how to develop your concept into a story, a story into a script, and a script into a completely drawn graphic novel prepared for publication.
