Way off topic, but please help!!!

I know this isn't the purpose of this community, but you all seem to know alot about graphic novels, and I'm not sure where else to turn...

I wrote a short story a while back, and recently a friend of mine had the great idea that I turn it into a graphic novel.

Now, I've read a few graphic novels but I'm nowhere near an expert, and I know absolutely nothing of the writing process. Right now I'm just looking to write it out (not get anyone to illustrate it yet). Anyway, do any of you know anything that could help me, or know of some places you could direct me to? It'd be much appreciated.

Published by Marvel Comics in 2003-2004.

Rating: E for Everyone

Summary: From the mind of Brian K Vaughan (Y the Last Man, Ex Machina), quite possibly the best writer in comics today, comes Runaways, an eighteen issue set following 6 teens who learn that their parents are super-villains, then decide to run away to combat their parents and right the wrongs they've done. The book follows Alex Wilder, Nico Minoru, Chase Stein, Gertrude Yorkes, Karolina Dean, and 11 year-old Molly Hayes, only children whose parents are all associates who get together annually to organise their charitable donations (or so they tell their children), leaving the children to gather and entertain themselves for the evening.

You've been watching too many WB shows, bro. That's ridiculous...Collapse )

Comic Book Review: Serenity: "Those Left Behind" (2005)

Change of plans. Looks like we'll be leaving this world a bit sooner than anticipated. I'd like that last statement to prove specific and mundane, not spiritual-like.

into + review: Hard Boiled (1993)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


"Hard Boiled" (1993)
Written by Frank Miller and art by Geof Darrow

Rating: M for everything. violence, nudity, sex, swearing. it's all there.

Frank Miller's very loose interpretation of Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Hard Boiled collects the three issue mini-series published by Dark Horse comics in a larger-than-normal format TPB. The larger pages let you better appreciate Geof Darrow's impossibly detailed art work.

Onward and upwardCollapse )

first review, be nice
