I am currently starting a series of graphic novels that are based on a science fiction trilogy screenplay I am working on concurrently.
However, I want to get the graphic novels out onto the market, before I begin production of the film trilogy. I am considering self publishing and have done a lot of homework and research in that regard.
Anyone have any advice for me in this arena?
How long is your graphic novel? If you've done a lot of research, this might not be much help. It may not be advice so much as a heads up. Hobby Lobby sells kits of comic book blanks. They can be great for practicing. Unless you have the means to publish them, I would draw up the originals by hand, copy them, staple them together and hand the first hundred or so out to local comic shops and libraries. I live in a town that is very conducive to this sort of thing.
Other than that, you could always write Neil Gaiman or Joe Sacco.
At some point, when I have several other projects out of the way, I want to create a graphic novel focusing on Julius Caesar's wars. Best of luck to you. Let me know when you get these situated. I'd love to read them, and also know a couple comic shop owners and coffee joints that might be able to help spread your story around.
Well it all depends on how good is your art?if you have a series of finished scripts and are ready to turn those scripts into art work a comic book slash graphic novel I would suggest going through IMAGE comics.Image is always on the look out for new creaters,and you will still own the rights to all your characters,and stories,but you have to be good,no,you have to be one of the best,you will be responsible for everything,artwork,colors,lettering,inking,you have to be able to pretty much create the entire book,or find a team to assist you,which,you will have to discuss payment with them,once everything is finished,Image will push your book worldwide,all the comic shops,but you have to be good,damn good.I wish you luck,I'm working on a couple things myself,good luck to you.
Talk to fellow hubber Waynet. He is working on a graphic novel and is very knowledgeable. I am certain he can be helpful to you.

Look at all these lovely, empty subforums in art and writing. I was wondering if there are some other painters around.As for me, I am a watercolor painter, and also enjoy inking and occasionally using Japanese Copic markers. My themes vary from fantasy to gothicism, usually with female subjects.So,...
