I always kept an eye out for a book like this whenever I shopped at my local bookstore, but I was lucky enough to find a copy of Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Graphic Novel wedged in the store's graphic novel section. Anyone else buy the book? I thought it had some decent advice.

I think it's kind of funny. I find humor in any book that targets "idiots" learning to do anything creative...in a sick sort of way.

Yeah, I got a copy at Mid-Ohio Con from Lieber. It's perfect for someone just starting out; it covers a lot of ground and answers a ton of question.

I liked it. I haven't put any of the info in it to use yet, but it is still good!

Cool. One of our buddies, Steven Withrow is putting together some sort of "creating graphic novels" book. I'll have to post it when it eventually comes out. I hadn't seen that one yet. I'll have to peak through it.

Yeah, and at the moment Catching Lucifer's Lunch and some info about us at SUMM is slated to be a part of Steve's book. Who knows if we'll end up on the cutting room floor, but it was cool to be asked to participate anyway. :)
