How to get a graphic novel career, and why you should start here

By now, you’ve probably heard that the average writer for a comic book or graphic novel has just three years of experience writing.

You’ve heard the advice to wait a while before starting, that you can’t really jump right in with the right skills.

But there’s another way to get started: Get your work in front of potential employers. 

If you’re not a graphic novelist, you can probably find work as an assistant, editor, or assistant to a publisher, writer, or editor, and work through the entire process from there.

And you’ll learn a lot about yourself and your craft.

Here’s what you need to know: The Art of Graphic Novel Writing Before you start, you’ll want to understand how the writing process works.

The most important thing to know is that no matter what the medium, no matter how long you’re working, the quality of your work will always be dependent on how well you’re able to convey your message to a reader. 

This is especially true if you’re just starting out, or if you want to make a career out of your craft, like the author of  The Last Kingdom (who just released a second graphic novel). 

The first step is to figure out how your craft fits in the story.

For example, if you write comics, your goal is to convey a certain level of emotion, and your character will have a specific physical characteristics, such as a head that looks like a heart. 

But if you just want to write comics about something else, such a sci-fi story, you might not be able to tell the reader what that character is thinking or feeling.

And if you have a particular style of art, like a cartoonist, you won’t be able tell what kind of characters they see in their comics.

You’ll have to work through a whole set of conventions that you need in order to convey the story accurately.

So how do you figure out what your craft is?

It starts with understanding the rules of the craft.

To get started, start by reading a few books on the craft and seeing how they apply to your craft:  ” The Art of Illustration: Principles, Techniques, and Guidelines for Illustration for All Writers by James M. Gunn, Jr. ” The most obvious thing is to read the books themselves.

There are some books you’ll find on the Web like this one.

If you want a little bit more practical advice, ” The Essential Guide to Graphic Noveling for Illustrators,” by Paul Pelletier, is a great resource.

It’s not a guide to graphic novels, but rather a guide for the process of creating comics, from conception to publication. 

You can also try these tips and advice from others: “Creating Graphic Novels: A Graphic Novel Artist’s Guide by Brian B. Lee” by James Gunn, also from Gunn.

He’s a graphic artist who also has a blog, which includes an essay and other helpful info.

Finally, it’s important to read through some other writers on the subject, as well. 

“The Art Of Graphic Novel Editing” by Jim Butcher is a great read for both beginners and professionals.

For someone like me who has never written a comic, I found it to be a really helpful book, because it lays out the basics of how to work in a graphic editor, so that I could figure out which conventions I needed to keep in order for my work to flow as smoothly as possible. 

 If, on the other hand, you’re a seasoned veteran of the industry, you may want to read “Graphic Novel Editing Handbook: The Art and Science of the Art of Editing Comics” by John Jackson Miller, a highly acclaimed graphic novel editor who also wrote “The Art and History of Graphic Art,” and “The Ultimate Guide to Digital Graphic Novelization” by Jason Llewellyn. 

There are some other good books as well, such “Understanding Graphic Novel Production: From Concept to Submission” by Andrew Ritchie, and “How to Make a Good Graphic Novel” by Joe Caramagna.

But if all you’re really interested in is the basics, then I would recommend reading “How Graphic Novel Writers Create Great Comics” (by John W. Campbell) by Michael Walsh, or “How To Write a Great Graphic Novel: From Idea to Art” (which is by Mark L. Nemeski) by Tom Derenick.

These are great books for beginning writers, but they don’t go into great detail about how to do a good job, so if you need some more detailed information, these are great resources.
